At party time or holiday celebrations any resident,
native born today, would ask hosts:
|Chinese ice cream, choose one or combine your favorite flavors?
|A twenty-five minute drive through a windy road will take us to Lechonera El Jobo, located in la ruta del
lechón (roasted pork gastronomy route). Here is the opportunity to taste Roast pork, rice with green
peas, viandas (roots), and many other dishes. The real and original recipe for our lechón asado (roast
pork). And you will learn how to do your own mofongo.
Next stop will be at Plaza Almirante Cristóbal Colón (town square) where you will learn more about the
encounter of the Spaniards with the Taínos and how Mayagüez was developed into a city port, exporting
coffee, sugar cane, and other items. This is the opportunity to taste the islandwide famous helados
chinos (ice cream) from Rex Cream. If you want to taste something different, pick one of these tropical
flavors: pineapple, coconut, piña colada, acerola (Caribbean Cherry), or maíz (maze); or maybe, you will
like to try Cerveza Medalla ( world award winner beer made in Mayagüez) in one of the small cafeterias
After this very long trip, but tasty trip, and before to your hotel, we will stop at Rock ´N Go. Grab a beer or
their award winning mojito, and enjoy the sunset.
Excellent for a pre or post tour!

Our day starts with a short drive to El Seco, a fishermen
community walking distance from the port. The first stop
is at Confitería Franco, once a chocolate factory, now is
home of the famous brazo gitano, a gypsy roll cake filled
with guava (original recipe), mango, cheese, or one of the
many flavors you will find at Franco. We continue our
journey to the Plaza de Mercado (market place). Your
Guide will introduce the cultural background and
importance of fruits, vegetables, roots, and pork as part of
the ingredients of today´s main dish. But, where is the
pork? Our next stop is at Fido´s Sangria Garden, home of
Sangría Fido, a native sangría and a must stop when
visiting this side of the mainland of Puerto Rico. But,
where is the pork?
Local favorite roast pork plus drinking beer, rum and
sangria is an all national favorite when cheerful
celebrations come. So we take the time to present a fun
tasting experience, just be aware eating is our main
objective. Each site will provide samplings for
one-of-a-kind tasting combo ending with pork as our
main dish of the day.
