As one of the biggest producers of rum, it’s only fitting that Puerto Rico hosts one of the major rum festivals in the Caribbean. A Taste of Rum is the annual event that showcases the best of Puerto Rican rums as well as a large selection of rums from the surrounding Caribbean Islands.

This year a Taste of Rum takes place on Saturday and Sunday March 19-20 in and around Paseo de La Princesa and will feature various rum competitions, seminars, tastings, live music, local food from Puerto Rico and surrounding islands; PLUS the unveiling of a NEW Puerto Rican Rum.

With all that rum (unlimited samples as part of the entrance fee), food and music Paseo de La Princesa will be a lively place to be.
