Casa Bacardi Rum Distillery
The largest in the world and is only a 15-minute drive from San Juan and one of the most popular visitors’ destinations in Puerto Rico.
Visitors are treated to a fascinating guided tour of the facilities at the “Cathedral of Rum.” Everything from the vast fermentation vats to the high-speed bottling machinery is at work and on display. A trolley takes you to the Bacardi family museum, where a history of the product and landmarks in its development are seen. You can sample the world-famous rum and buy souvenirs or a variety of Bacardi products at the gift shop.
If you are lucky, your trip may coincide with the annual Bacardi Arts and Crafts Fair, a joyfully crowded, two-day event that features local artists and artisans and plenty of music.
