If you like Pina Coladas and gettin caught in the rain, well then… you are half in luck. While there may be a shortage of rain in Puerto Rico (which we are not complaining about), there is definitely no shortage of one of world’s most iconic mixed drinks – the Pina Colada! In fact, this sweet classic actually originated in Puerto Rico back in the 50’s. This rum-based cocktail is made with coconut cream and pineapple juice, and it can be served on the rocks or frozen. It’s the perfect beverage to enjoy while lounging at your San Juan Beach hotel.
Cool down your body with the light and refreshing taste of a mojito, which can be found on almost every menu on the island.
