I found the most beautiful chocolates in Puerto Rico during my Eastern Caribbean cruise. RCL recommended a chocolate shop at one of the other ports. People were standing in line there but I was not impressed and glad I spent my chocolate money in PR. The shop was being redecorated, the owner was very nice, his chocolates were art and tasted divine! He told me he was struggling to get on the cruise directors lists of recommended shopping, so I hope that he is doing well. His address is San Justo Street 202A, PMB 204, Old San Juan, PR. Good luck Mr and Mrs. Caris-Perez! Linda

Well That's new to me
I did not know there was any chocolate shop of that kind here on PR.

nothing is better than chocolate, But if you want to taste something good
ask for "Dulce De Coco" coconut candy

I agree! It's fantastic. We used to stop by little huts set up by the roadside to buy the dulce de coco, plus the best pineapple in the world. Yum!

It looks to be a few hundred yards up the hill from the dock area. San Justo Street runs perpendicular to the harbor.

Frankly I think Corne Port Royal is overrated. I think the best chocolates I've had in a long time are made right here in the mainland U.S. in Wilmington, NC. South'n France is the name.
