Puerto Rico nightlife is probably the most vibrant in the Caribbean.

The classic zones to get going are Isla Verde, Condado, and Old San Juan; and they are next to each other.

Locals customarily begin their fun filled nights by grabbing some cocktails early in the evening to warm up for the night and take advantage of happy hour time.

Puerto Rico cuisine is born from the blend of Taíno (indigenous indians), African, and Spanish influences and at the same time unique to our island. Fondly called by puertorricans cocina criolla (creole cuisine). Besides rice and beans, roasted pork slowly cooked over open fire pit is considered a national dish.

Another popular dish is the mofongo(moh’-fun-go), mashed plantain with garlic and pork rinds. The mofongo is shaped into a bowl and filled with anything from meats to seafood, really delicious. For those who want a stinging experience the heat is added at the table with pique, hot pepper sauce.
