With Father’s Day only a few days away on Sunday June 16, many of us are searching for that perfect gift for Dad. This year, however, Flavors of San Juan suggests you skip the traditional ties or golf balls route, and treat Dad to a real evening out on the town: out in the oldest town running under the American flag, Old San Juan in sunny Puerto Rico! Look no further for a family outing for your upcoming Caribbean vacation, we’ve got the best of Puerto Rican cuisine and culture right here, all rolled into one!Why take Dad out to just one restaurant this Father’s Day when you can visit not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 different restaurants in just one evening?! Flavors of San Juan Food and Culture Tours invites you to share with us in a fun-filled evening where we’ll take Dad, Mom, and the whole family across blue cobbled-stoned streets, into old jail cells, all while noshing on local, yummy treats, and sipping on some of Dad’s favorite drinks.Traveling with the family? Not a problem, kids 5 and under go for free! Hey Mom, want to find a way to finally get Dad into the kitchen? Ask for one of our Chef for a Day experiences, where your private chef will teach both of you how to make a full Puerto Rican meal, start to finish! And kids, if you’re looking for a cool, new way to bond with Dad, why not take him on our Rum or Coffee Tasting? Not only will you get to enjoy these great beverages, you’ll turn Dad into a connoisseur!
Dad always taught us to eat well and finish our food. For the foodie in all of us, show him you were listening by letting him enjoy his special day to the max. We’ll take care of the dishes! 😉

We had a great time with Hector! He was a great tour guide!
Fantastic tour - great historic and cultural insights by fun, knowledgeable and easy-going guide, Leslie Ann!
While all the food is still fresh in my belly let me take the time to give a shout out to my boy Hector for being such an amazing guide!! He was super friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We had wonderful conversations about history, culture, places to go and of course food! This is well worth the price and you will be full afterwards. Our group was so fun and the weather was perfect! I’d recommend this tour for everyone (because of course we all need to eat) because now you know where to go back to eat and you’ve walked by various restaurants and can get your tour guide’s opinions about them. Oh and make sure to wear comfortable shoes!
Pablo knows his country. He gave us all the history we could possibly wants. A very knowledgeable young man. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who visit PR.
Thank you for a great experience.
Great guide. Fun tour. Definitely recommend it!
Marjorie was the BEST! Our group of 8, including 4 kids, thoroughly enjoyed our food tour of Old San Juan with Marjorie. She was friendly, upbeat, and shared tons of interesting information. We loved learning from her and tasting so many San Juan delights. Highly recommend Marjorie and this tour. It was the perfect kick off to our week in San Juan.
This was such a wonderful introduction to Puerto Rican food, history, and culture. Our guide, Marjorie, was a delight and made this tour so fun!
Fabian was a great tour guide. The food was delicious and information helpful.
Marjorie was a very knowledgeable and enjoyable guide!
