Take an in-depth tour of Casa Bacardi, one of the world's most prolific rum distilleries.

A comprehensive tour of the distillery begins with a welcome drink and traces the rum-producing history of Puerto Rico. Learn about the company's founding and move from Cuba in the 1930s, hear the secrets behind famed Bacardi cocktails, and view the production and fermentation process at the bottling plant.

  • Disappointing. We visited when our cruise boat stopped in San Juan. We were told by the boat staff it was a tour of the distillery. In reality, it's a tour of a historic replica of the distillery. You don't actually tour the distillery at all. A taxi brought us from the cruise boat dock here, we took the tour, then a taxi driver took advantage of us getting back to the boat - drove us a couple blocks then yelled at us to get out at the water taxi and charged us the same as if we went back to the boat. So we paid double to get back plus added another hour. We wasted a whole day getting to the distillery and back. Never again.
  • Our first time in PR, how can you not do a tour of Bacardi?! I highly recommend the Distillery Taste Tour. We learned at lot of the history behind the name and more about rum during our tasting than just googling it. Our guide was amazing and well spoken. He also had a great sense of humor. Highly recommend buying any specialized rum in their gift shop. There was one we thought we could just buy at the airport. We were so wrong.
  • If you like rum, you have to stop at Casa Bacardi when in Puerto Rico! I've been here a number of times, and the tour has changed quite a bit. Even with the new tour building, it's still a fun time. You learn a lot about the Bacardi family and their signature rum. Enjoy the free drinks!
  • Did the mixology tour and we loved it. The tour guide was amazing!
  • I've done the rum sampling your twice now. Was very pleased that each time provided a unique experience. Jose was the guide each time and each time I learned so much and saw different parts of the factory and process. Of course the tasting at the end was the best part. I do wish the experience was long and incorporated more rum, but definitely worth going once if not twice!

Where to stay in San Juan

If you're looking for colonial-era lodgings, explore the streets of the old town area, where many grand buildings house guesthouses and hotels. The neighborhoods of Condado, Ocean Park, and Isla Verde contain the majority of beach resorts, with some glamorous and upscale options sitting alongside more laid-back and family-friendly ones. Rental bungalows just back from the beach, as well as side-street hostels, provide the city's budget-friendly places to stay.
