Culture & Cuisine

Become a foodie insider with Flavors of San Juan Food & Culture Tours is Puerto Rico’s original food and cultural tour of Old San Juan. Let us show you our slice of paradise through food! We take you on a progressive walk and eat our way through the city.

Sip on Puerto Rico’s most legendary rum cocktail while learning its fabled beginnings. Stroll the cobblestone streets of this 495+ year old fortified Spanish colonial city and learn about its unique architecture. See the 2nd oldest church in the Americas and re-live the past on our small, boutique tours.

Indulge yourself and savor Puerto Rican “must eat” cuisine, like local single origin coffee, artisanal paletas, rich chocolate, fresh ceviche and even make your own signature Puerto Rican dish: Mofongo. We get you involved in the authentic food scene so you leave with the confidence and knowledge that will serve you during the remainder of your stay in sunny Puerto Rico.

Skip the lines and dine with us for the “in” on “do not miss” restaurants and foodie scenes in and around the city. By the end, you’ll know the best places to dine in Old San Juan.

Frequently asked

In what language are the tours?2016-12-21T01:42:11+00:00

Our tours are primarily conducted in English but can be conducted in Spanish during a private tour upon request. Please email us at info@flavorsofsanjuan.com

How difficult is the walking / How fit should I be?2017-06-25T04:29:55+00:00

Our food tours are between 2 and 3 hours in length feature a number of tasting locations and are a mix of relaxed seating at partner restaurants and tastings that are shorter and faster paced which have no designated seating for each guest. This allows us to cover a handful of restaurants in 3 hours, plus historical and cultural areas of interest in the Old City. Guests should also be comfortable walking about 2.5 miles (10,000 steps) over cobble stoned streets, walking a flight of stairs and strolling up/down hills.

Vegetarians, Allergies and Non-Alcoholic Drinks2016-12-21T01:40:23+00:00

Guests who are vegans, vegetarians, gluten-free, or have other dietary restrictions, as well as non-alcoholic drinkers, can be accommodated on all our foodie offerings with advanced notice.

We actually are wonderful at accommodating dietary restrictions but must know IN ADVANCE so we can prepare adequately for those needs. In most cases guests will still experience LOCAL cuisine on the tour that fits in with their dietary needs. (NOTE: the tour price will remain the same, even if non-alcoholic versions are provided. For instance a pina colada with rum simply can have the rum not added so it’s still a local experience).

Do you operate tours in the rain?2016-12-21T01:38:54+00:00

Yes. The tours are held rain or shine. You should dress appropriately for the day’s weather conditions and bring an umbrella if necessary. Luckily the showers in the Caribbean are usually brief and light.

In the rare event that WE cancel the tour due to weather, you will be able to reschedule to another time/date, receive credit for a future event in the form of a transferable/never expiring gift card or a full refund.

Are refunds and ticket reschedules available?2016-12-21T01:49:48+00:00

Once purchased, ticket reschedules are allowed (free of charge) only based on availability and with at least 48 hours notice (except in special cases such as a tropical storm or hurricane, where we’ll try to accommodate guests).

Our tours offer limited space per guide to maintain their boutique feel and often sell out. There will be no reschedules or partial credit given for late arrivals, no shows or partial attendance. In lieu of refunds, Flavors offers transferable gift cards you can use in future tours, give to friends or even sell (they have no expiration date).

Please note we operate rain or shine so tours will NOT be cancelled simply because it is raining. In the event of a dangerous flash flood, tropical storm or hurricane if Flavors of San Juan cancels a tour we will offer guests to reschedule, a gift certificate or a full refund.

Tours depart promptly and it is the guest’s responsibility to show up at the right location on time. Flavors of San Juan reserves the right to cancel, change or substitute any service without prior notice.

CRUISE SHIP DELAYS/PORT CANCELLATIONS and AIRLINE CANCELLATIONS/DELAYS: please contact your travel insurance provider because in many instances you can receive compensation. If you are delayed for a tour due to delays please call the number on your “e-ticket” and a Flavors manager can easily direct you by foot to the next tasting location so you don’t lose the entire tour.
