Exploring Old San Juan is one of the "must do" things for any visitor to Puerto Rico. There are many ways to tour Old San Juan — a self-guided walking tour, riding a Segway, or even a horse & carriage ride. All of them are fun, but walking around on foot gives you the most flexibility. And all this exploring works up a real hunger and thirst.
So, when we heard about the Flavors of San Juan Food & Culture Tour, which is a walking and food-tasting tour of Old San Juan, we knew that we would have to check it out.
Frommer's Guide to Puerto Rico
For a fantastic overview of authentic Puerto Rican cuisine, we highly recommend the walking/noshing tour, Flavors of San Juan (787 964-2447 / www.flavorsofsanjuan.com, $75, no children under 18, daily 2- hour tours at 5pm). Itineraries vary, but samples may include tostones, mofongo, tapas at a Spanish restaurant (where the owner serenaded us a cappella), rum or beer samples, and possibly a mojito and French fries at tour guide Leslie Padró's favorite French bistro. Padró is a former CNN staffer from Atlanta, and she kept this tour informative and relaxed, as if sharing her local finds with friends. Very pregnant during our tour, she nonetheless got behind the bistro bar to help make the mojitos.
