Fulfill Your Wanderlust (and Foodie) Side With The San Juan Dumplings Food Tour
The ultimate walking culture tour from Condado to La Placita
From one cultural enthusiast to another, there is no denying that San Juan Puerto Rico is one of the most peaceful yet adventurous places to visit. From the enriching San Juan food, the historic architecture to the beautiful landscapes, there is nothing quite as elating as embarking on a wanderlust adventure that fulfills all the senses. And yes, that certainly includes ‘taste’ as well.
All in all, I love everything about San Juan, especially when it comes to the scenic views of Castillo San Cristóbal and the luxury vibes of Hotel El Convento (highly recommend both!). But above all else, I want to share with you the key experience that truly reformed my passion and appreciation for San Juan Puerto Rico as a whole – the San Juan Dumplings Food Tour.
The San Juan Dumplings Food Tour – An Insider Experience
If you genuinely want to accentuate cultural appreciation, then be sure to make time to experience San Juan’s most culturally-bridging walking culture tour from Condado to La Placita. As any traveler knows, one of the best ways to immersively yourself within a culture is by walking in their footsteps, which is exactly what the San Juan Dumpling Food Tour offers. That said, the tour itself is three hours long, you get an astounding variety of ten different dumplings as you roam past the hidden gems from Condado to La Placita, and above all, gain an insider history debrief each step of the way.
Now, don’t get me wrong; each dumpling I tried was nothing short of amazing, but the history behind each one is what really intertwined the taste, value, and meaning together. But WAIT! It gets better. The walking culture tour from Condado to La Placita may have a primary focus on food and history, but when you finally hit La Placita with a full belly, there are tons of markets, shops, and city bars you can explore as well to top off the tour – all with a small group of like-minded people who cherish culture, diversity, exploration, and food as much as you do.
What To Expect – The Break Down
Sure, the San Juan food is extraordinary and the walking experience in general offers a whole new layer of landscape mesmeric, but what is the process like from A to B?
Well, for starters you can pick from the dumpling tour or the social drinking tour (I picked the dumpling tour this time around).
Immediately upon booking, you will be instructed to meet in front of Condado Vanderbilt Hotel a little before 4pm.
From there, you are the group will walk throughout the area, stopping at different places to enjoy the diversified dumplings with historic stories/cultural tales following them.
At the finish line, you will end in La Placita, where again, you can explore the different shops and places that area has to offer
Finally, you will walk back to the initial meeting point where it all began (just 1.3 miles) with a whole lot of memories and stories to tell.
Where Culture, Food, and Fun Collide
With all that San Juan Puerto Rico and the culture that revolves around San Juan food, I cannot stress enough just how transformational trying out the San Juan Dumpling Food Tour was. It not only gave me a newfound love and appreciation for Chinese history but also a one-of-a-kind, absorbing experience that only a walking tour can offer. Sure, I highly recommend checking out the other activities you can do here, but as someone who has tried ten dumplings, don't forget to add a walking culture tour from Condado to La Placita to your list. You've truly got nothing to lose and everything to gain by doing so.
In the end, I hope this helps you create your own memorable itinerary when traveling to San Juan Puerto Rico. And if you do end up choosing to intensify your experience and taste buds at once with the San Juan Dumplings Food Tour, then be sure to take lots of pictures and more importantly, don’t forget your appetite!
