One of Puerto Rico’s national pastimes is eating, so your group will never suffer from a shortage of delightful eats.
As you move around the island, dining options will vary considerably. Smaller groups may not have issues securing tables in most places, especially with advance notice to the restaurant. In other places, take-out meals or catering may be preferable to streamline the experience for a larger group. The team at Discover Puerto Rico can provide local expertise to help make your planning easy.
San Juan and the Metro Area
Groups staying in the San Juan area will find a wealth of dining options in close proximity. From local specialties to international chains, there is something for every taste.
If you have a group that’s looking for a memorable meal but is too large to book a table, consider catering from the JSB Cooking Group, which is the catering arm of the famed, chef-driven restaurant Santaella, located in Santurce.
Or, for a night on the town that includes a meal and entertainment, consider somewhere like Triana Tapas & Flamenco, where the menu is served with a fun side of dancing six nights a week. There’s also a private space that can be reserved for groups that has its own separate bar.
Near El Yunque
One fun way to satisfy a diverse group is at the Luquillo kiosks, a strip of over 50 stalls of all kinds of food imaginable — from traditional Puerto Rican food to Southern BBQ. This gives groups options to taste different eateries while also giving them a unique slice of local culture and cuisine.
