    What to Expect
    Your tour begins with pickup from your San Juan hotel. After boarding an air-conditioned vehicle, you’ll head straight for the food markets of La Placita de Santurce. On your visit, you will get to learn and taste some of our delicious treats such as quenepas, papaya, apple bananas, sweet pineapples, plantains, and more. 

    The second stop is just a few steps away from Isla Verde, Los Pinones kiosks where more than 60 stalls exude tempting aromas, here you will learn how to create dishes such as alcapurria, pastellios, and mofongo.

    After lunch, choose between relaxing on the white sands of the nearby Luquillo Beach after Los Pinones’ arrays of stalls sell everything from crisp fritters and fresh seafood to Italian-inspired pasta dishes or returning back to your hotel.

    We were supposed to help clean a beach. But when we went on the tour it was raining too hard, so the tour guide made other arrangements for our tour, mostly under a roof and out of the rain.
