My friends and I took advantage of our last full day in Puerto Rico by taking a road trip to the country's lechoneras! A drive up to the mountain town of Guavate wasn't exactly fun, but once we got there it was all worth it.
We got there early enough to see the lechoneras set up and get ready for what is typically a busy weekend for them! We initially spotted Lechonera Los Pinos and got in line to order foods. The owners and the staff were so patient with us since we were unfamiliar with most of the dishes they offer.
The lechon by the pound was really good, and my Filipino taste buds were excited to try it! Besides the lechon we also tried other traditional stews and fried goods!
After dining we checked out the souvenir shops and did a little bit of shopping. Unfortunately we missed the live bands since we had to drive back to San Juan.
