There’s no better place than Puerto Rico to have a night out on the town!

Whether you’re visiting with friends, hanging with your partner, or enjoying a solo trip, you’ll find a variety of local cocktail enthusiasts, bars, and lounges.

The Island has a rich history of cocktails. The piña colada was invented here (although there are competing claims over which bar can claim the honor). You’ll find an array of tropical and rum-based drinks on the Island, including some made with fresh-squeezed juices and other house-made twists.

Whatever your drink of choice, you’ll be sure to find a new local favorite while exploring the Island. ¡Salud!
