Old San Juan isn’t exactly known for trendy stores, but I did manage to find one during our short visit to the city. (I swear, I must be like some kind of magnet for this stuff or fate really is real.) Luca is a “curated shop featuring designers of unique and one of a kind goods with a story to tell.”
Full of incredibly beautiful items, it is clear that Luca takes a lot of pride in selecting only the highest quality of items to sell. And the best part? The majority of their merchandise is made up of products created by local designers from the island. While there, I picked up the most beautiful minimalistic necklace, created in the heart of Puerto Rico. I don’t often purchase things to take back with me on holiday, but I love the idea of contributing to the local economy and owning a one-of-a-kind item made with love and care.
If you find yourself in Old San Juan, this store is definitely not to be missed!
You can find LUCA at 255 Cruz Street Old San Juan
