What To Expect
Start your day in the morning or early or late afternoon from a central meeting point in the atmospheric neighborhood of Old San Juan.
As you walk to your first tasting, immerse yourself in the area’s breathtaking French and Spanish architecture, some of which is more than 500 years old, listening as your guide explains the history of the location and its colorful Colonial architecture.
Visit several small local restaurants to enjoy delicious bites and learn about the diverse culinary influences, including Spanish, African, and indigenous cuisines, that give Puerto Rican food its distinctive flavor.
This tour gives you the opportunity to sample many of Puerto Rico's best-loved foods, including the staple sofrito—a sauce that serves as the base for many of the nation's dishes. Learn the secret to making mofongo with fried plantains.
Top that off with rice and beans, Puerto Rican rum, and enjoy something extra sweet for dessert. Dietary restrictions are generally easily accommodated, just indicate your needs when booking.
