Plaza Las Americas

"At the Center of it All," Plaza Las Americas is the most popular mall in Puerto Rico. The shopping center originally opened in 1968 on 70 acres of land and has since undergone three separate renovations and expansions. Today, the mall encompasses 1.8 million square feet of area, and due to its central location remains busy serving tourists and locals alike.

The "Plaza," as it is known to locals, features 300 shops and restaurants, including the largest JC Penney in the world, and a 40,000 square foot Forever 21. There are more than 40 dining options available in the La Terraza Food Court, and a 13-screen movie theater will take care of all of your dining needs. There are more than 10,000 parking spaces surrounding the mall as well as a permanent taxi stand, five valet parking stations, and a concierge service center.
