Business Aviation Tips and In-flight Catering for San Juan, Puerto RicoMay 24, 2016 by Stacey Farooqui
Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States that is located in the Caribbean. The capital city, San Juan, is home to about 400,000 Americans with a unique culture that is evident in their history, architecture and cuisine. The colder months in the Northern Hemisphere are the peak season for visiting the Caribbean, but the warmer months are also pleasant.
Operating to San Juan means you will touch down at either Fernando Luis Ribas Dominicci Airport (SIG / TJIC) in Miramar or Luis Munoz Marin International Airport (SJU / TJSJ) in Carolina. When you are ready to plan for your next leg, in-flight catering is available at both airports in San Juan via the Air Culinaire Worldwide Network. Before setting off on your next trip, let’s first take a look at some things to do while on the ground in San Juan.
While in San Juan, you could opt to spend your time relaxing on the beaches or having fun with a variety of water sports and it would be a perfect trip. One unique experience is to visit the Bioluminescent Bay at night, where the waters glow with fluorescent colors. If you enjoy visiting the Nationals Parks in the United States, while in Puerto Rico you will have a chance to visit the only tropical rainforest in the National States National Forest System – El Yungue.
However, if you would like to get to know more about the town and local culture, there are plenty of opportunities to do so. Old San Juan is a popular spot to visit for shopping while also walking through historic streets full of local architecture. Other favorite places to visit are the San Juan National Historic Site, Castillo San Felipe el Morro and Castillo de San Cristobal.
When exploring Puerto Rican cuisine, you will find that it has influences from Spain, Latin America, Africa and native cultures. Popular national dishes include Arroz con Gandules y Lechon (roasted pork with yellow rice and pigeon peas), Asopao (soup made of chicken, shellfish, chorizo and rice) and Pasteles (tamales). The fact that Puerto Rico has a tropical climate is clearly reflected in several of the most popular desserts and drinks, where coconut is used in a variety of forms. Pina Colada (the national drink, which features coconut and pineapple), Coquito (coconut milk with eggnog) and Tembleque (the national dessert, a coconut pudding) to name a few. If you are looking to step out on the town for dinner, some of the more popular restaurants are Marmalade Restaurant, Verde Mesa, Oceana and Cocina Abierta.
