Then, take a seat in a trolley, which takes you through an interactive exhibit, and learn about the Bacardi brand and family-owned business. See a recreation of the original distillery in Cuba, as well as memorabilia and photographs showing Bacardi’s history. Take a whiff of displays of rum you pass by and get to know the different varieties of the spirit. At the bottling plant, gain insight into the fermentation and production process.
After the tour, you’ll have time to browse the gift shop and purchase rum and souvenirs to take home.
Back aboard your minivan, you’re off to Old San Juan, the second oldest city in the New World. A National Historic Preservation site, this charming town dates back to 1513.
Drive past well-preserved examples of Spanish colonial architecture, including the white-marbled Capitol Building facing the Atlantic and the Spanish Moorish architecture of Casa de España. As you wind your way through the hilly and narrow streets, learn about Old San Juan’s history.
Pass parts of the massive City Wall, or La Muralla, nearly 20 feet (6 meters) thick and up to 60 feet (18 meters) tall in certain places. Then, stretch your legs with a stop at San Cristobal Fort, built in 1785. Your guide shares insight into the largest Spanish military structure in the New World, explaining its innovative layout and its tumultuous history in guarding the city from attack. Capture mesmerizing views of San Juan Bay and 400-year-old El Morro Fort.
