The Taste of Old San Juan private tour
Puerto Rican food is delicious. Is tasty (spicy) but not hot.
Old San Juan has amazing restaurants and coffee shops. Am very passionate about our food and would be happy to take you to some of my favorite places. Along the way, I'll tell you about our history, culture and of course. . . our food.
This is a private/customized tour, so we can shape it in the way that suits you the most.
Note: My schedule is unpredictable. Please send me a message (using the "Ask a question" link) with your preferred date and time before you make your booking and pay. I will respond to you and tell you my availability.
Also, send me a note of your group is larger than 6.
We meet in Plaza Colon (Columbus Square).
We'll walk to a coffee shop, were you will try one of our local pastries (either a "mayorca" or a "quesito"). You will have some of the best coffee in the world.
From there we will walk to one or two other restaurants where you will try the mofongo, and some of our favorite samplers ("tostones", "amarillos", "sorullitos", etc). Make sure you try our rice and beans, what we eat almost every day. You also have to try some of our amazing deserts.
We can also sample some "Piña Colada" from Barrachina Restaurant (where it was invented), some "limbers" (frozen juice on a cup), a "piragua" (local snow cones) and/or a freezer pop from "Senor Paleta".
Am very happy to share my passion with you.

My family presented Javier with a challenge as we consist of older and younger adults, a teenager and a 9-year old, all with diverse interests and attention spans. Javier did a great job of keeping us all engaged and interested. Besides being a very knowledgeable guide, he is an interesting person. I highly recommend him.
