Where to stay
Live the buena vida at La Concha, a beachside resort in San Juan. Spend your day by the ocean with a Pina Colada in hand or take it slow by relaxing under the palm trees. Refuel and enjoy the cuisine at one of the resort’s seven restaurants, bars and cafes. Party into the night at the resort’s bar and lounge scene in the heart of the entertainment district, Condado.
What to do
Discover Old San Juan at a leisurely pace with its cobblestone streets and historic fortress. Once the crown jewel of the Spanish Empire, the walled city still preserves its stunning colonial architecture and World Heritage Sites declared by UNESCO.
Where to drink
When in the rum capital of the world experience Casa Bacardí, the largest premium rum distiller in the world. On a tour, learn about the history behind how Puerto Rico has been distilling rum for centuries or get creative with a mixology class featuring Bacardi tastings.
Where to eat
As the ultimate gastronomic destination of the Caribbean, the possibilities are endless. On the rooftop of Hotel Milano in San Juan enjoy authentic Puerto Rican dishes at Punto de Vista. Try a Mofongo, the island’s unofficial national dish, made traditionally with fried green plantains and old fashioned pilon.
