After driving through the center of Puerto Rico (very much off the beaten path) without finding any reasonable looking place to stop for lunch we came across the Hacienda MariBo. It was perfect. The sun was getting low in the sky, so overlooking the hills from the wrap around porch was just beautiful. We just wanted a light bite and a drink, so we ordered various empanadas and grilled sausage as tapas. The sausage was particularly good. Very good food for the price, but the real treat was the drink. My husband wanted to order a specialty drink - after finding a waiter who spoke English he settled on "The Secret" of the house - a huge goblet filled with a drink resembling a strawberry daiquiri with some additional liquors included and two beer bottles upended in the goblet! Very unique and actually pretty tasty on a hot day. From there we drove south towards the coast and then Northeast returning to San Juan to watch the sun setting in the moutains as we drove through. A great afternoon.
