This is a walk and taste tour and you will ingest the equal to a full meal of Puerto Rican food by the end - and will have walked off half of it! The stops and the tastings will vary based on the time of your tour. In the morning, you will wake up to a jolt of Puerto Rican coffee and some traditional sweets. If your tour is later in the day you might begin with a taste of rice and beans with the special seasonings that make it Puerto Ricans own dish.
Everyone gets a kick out of their visit to the local market, where fresh produce is displayed in the old European way. Tastings will be part of that stop as well. But there are some dishes and drinks that are special to this island and you can expect to taste them. Learn how to make a piña colada the original way and no visit is complete without experiencing mofongo, a wonderful squash concoction that lends itself to multiple forms of protein. Whether it is beef, chicken, fish or vegetarian, it is delicious.
Puerto Rico is famous for rum and rum drinks, particularly the Pina Colada. The location that lays claim to its origin will be on your itinerary, whether you are touring in the morning or the afternoon. And no one can leave the island without a taste of mofongo, a dish that deserves a more appealing name. But once you taste true mofongo, the name will be irrelevant as the dish is a standout!
Your tour through the history of the island by taste is satisfying on every front as the culture and the cuisine mesh together.
