In Old San Juan you can stop for traditional local lunches at spots like del Jibarto or take a drive out of town to explore the Lechon (Pig) Trail, a route lined with small local spots roasting whole pigs over wood fires and serving the tender chunks of smoky pork alongside plates of beans, rice, mofongo and grilled plantains.

It’s Puerto Rican pork paradise!
