Caribe Hilton, Birthplace of the Piña Colada
Caribe Hilton is the birth place of the popular tropical drink Piña Colada!
Ramón “Monchito” Marrero was the creator of the Piña Colada in 1954, during his days as a bartender at our resort. After three months of experimentation, Mr. Marrero finally settled on the recipe Piña Colada, which he felt captured the true flavors of Puerto Rico. He continued to serve the drink at the Caribe Hilton for 35 years after its creation and was rewarded for his efforts in 1978 when Puerto Rico named the cocktail its national drink.
