I wonder if the prices here are higher than in small street shops...
Prices are similar in most of the shops, although some shops in resorts may be higher.
The House of Rum is a good place to do a tasting of a few different rums, if you are serious about it. A tasting is usually not more than ½ ounce of rum (straight, no mix) with about 10 minutes between tastes. As in wines, start with the lightest and move towards the ambers then the dark rums.
I go there a lot :) lol!
Thanks for the info.
I'll be there for sure.
It really didn't impress me all that much and I found the prices higher than the prices in our resort gift shop. Go for the experience if you like but do shop around before you buy.
Will we be able to get to the House of Rum by using the double decker bus that runs all day long?
Just returned last week and it's out 3rd time there... we always stop in and buy some rhum like Arecha carta de oro that is always available there... We had a hard time finding that one this year. The prices were actually cheaper than some shops but really, there in only 1$ to 2$ per bottle difference... We found Santiago more expensive than at the airport. No biggie! We did a sit down tasting in the little bar and learned a lot. Very interesting! Go and have fun!
No problem on the bus
Just get off at Cuatro Palmas ... think it is the closest stop.
I love the house of rum.
I'd like to live at the house of rum.
I want to move there.
