Tips from the community

A mashup of plantains, garlic, pork cracklings, and bacon shaped into a ball and topped with seafood, pork, chicken, or beef–that’s mofongo. It’s one of the island’s best dishes and can be found on many plates as a versatile base or a side dish for fish and other meat dishes. The possibilities of mofongo are endless. Try some at Barrachina or El Jibarito; they’re considered some of the best bites of mofongo.

Old San Juan might be one of my favorite places I have visited. Every house is painted in a different vibrant color with accents of white that outline the building. It is an entirely walkable area with cute stone streets. The food is unexplainably amazing. One of my favorite meals was a plate of fish with rice and some mini guava and cheese empanadas on the size. There are also these breads I used to get at the bakery called "Cafeteria Mallorca" in the morning. It was always busy and loved by the locals.
