Bacardi is one of the oldest and best selling rum manufacturers in the world. The Puerto Rico facility is their flagship. Unfortunately, the tour is not of the facility, but rather of a visitor center they have designed to include historic memorabilia and replicas. The tour is free and is educational and somewhat entertaining, it also includes two free drinks. Getting there from Old San Juan is easy, just take the $0.50 ferry to Catano and then take a $10 cab from the parking structure to the right of the harbor. If you have nothing else to do, or if you're interested in rum manufacturing, then go for it. If not, stay on the beach and enjoy yourself.
