We took a trip to Bacardi Rum Factory to see the tour. I admit, the free drinks were also a draw for me! I have been on other sugar cane and rum tours on other islands and always enjoyed them. This was different, more of a tour about Bacardi that takes place at their factory, but not a factory tour. But it is generally entertaining. From San Juan take Highway 22 west to the Cantaño exit, Road 165. The plant is visible on the right about a mile from the exit on Road 165, Km 2.6, Int. 888, at the Bay View Industrial Park in Cantaño. This is a run down of the tour we took: When we got to the Bacardi gate, we said we wanted to take the tour and the guard gave us a parking pass for the dashboard. The tour take you into the heart of an empire, and relates a story of a family, and a spirit, that have left an indelible footprint in the Caribbean. They’ve been conducting tours since 1962, an almost 50-year tradition of showing visitors their home. That’s pretty impressive. They start with some history of sugar cane in the Caribbean and the origins of rum making. Then there is a nice movie about the Bacardi family history, and the Bacardi rum making process.
