    One of my favorite places in the San Juan area, I think that this is a great place to go for anyone age 18 and older. Why, you ask? There are free drinks with every tour, so you have a drink before the tour, and it makes everything, learning.. everything! That much more of a pleasurable experience. They give you stick-phones to use on the tour to recieve information on artifacts. If you're a sensable person who enjoys smelling things, there are about twenty barrels of different kinds of rum from different years. Personally, the aroma made my head hurt, but it could have been enduced by the drinks I had prior. They also teach you how to make special drinks and which rum you should use with which kind of drink. Very informative for the beverage connosieur, and fun for the whole family.

  • It's in the RUM

    If you have spare time on your trip, the Bacardi tour is great. You can take the Ferry from Old San Juan to Catano for 50 cents and the cab ride to the factory is another 2 dollars. You can also take the bus. Once there you are handed 2 drink tickets per person. But with my friends and I, we went up 3 times for a total of 6. So we were pretty much buzz when we went on the tour. The tour was great in that it allowed you to learn the history of Bacardi and all that other good stuff. You can even buy some rums (2?) that aren't sold anywhere else.

    There is no admission for the factory itself. They give you 2 drink coupons each for a bicardi drink of your chioce or drink the reserve straight. On the tour see the history and see some hands on or smells on exhibits;) During the tour, they allow you to send a video message to anyone. Take email addresses to send a video message After the tour, they drop you off at the gift shop. You might want to buy some of the very special limited release 12 year old they sell only at the factory.

    You can either take the spanish or english tour.

    This is an interesting tour to take albeit a bit too commercial.

    This is the largest distillery in the world.
