Mom Central received a Food Tour from The Flavors of San Juan in order to facilitate this post.
As I’ve mentioned before, I can’t say enough about what San Juan, Puerto Rico has to offer – because it truly has something for everyone. But if you’re into not only history but also food – The Flavors of San Juan, Old San Juan Food Tour is incredible. My first organized tour was with the The Flavors of San Juan Food & Culture Tours and I attended the Chef For a Day™ class, which I thought was incredible. You can read about it in my post, Experience San Juan, Puerto Rico by Learning to Cook Like a Local (Part I – The Cooking Class).
I was equally blown away by the walking tour in Old San Juan. With the best of both worlds, food and history wrapped into one amazing evening tour through the winding streets of Old San Juan and along the water too, foodies and historians experienced some of the authentic dishes of San Juan. Not only will your belly be full and your mind be enriched your senses will be delighted by the Spanish and French architecture.
I truly think you could plan a trip to Puerto Rico, simply for the rich culture and amazing food the island has to offer. There are so many restaurants and dishes to try so you have to go with an appetite and the food walking tour is a great way to get a taste of everything while also seeing the sights.
The magic combination of tasting authentic Puerto Rican cuisine while learning about the history of a dish and touring through the streets of Old San Juan, creates the perfect experience for a family, a group of friends, or even if you’re solo. The tour guide that lead my group, was incredible, he was so knowledgeable and personable throughout the evening dinner tour.

During our progressive dinner stroll through Old San Juan, the tour restaurant locations included Aromas , Café La Princesa, Patio Del Nispero, and Rosa de Triana. We sampled mofongo, pina coladas, dulce de leche, and other delicious bites during this progressive dinner tour though the cobble stone streets of Old San Juan, too.
