Fodor's Review

Exiled from Cuba, the Bacardí family built a small rum distillery here in the 1950s. Today it's the world's largest, with the capacity to produce 100,000 gallons of spirits a day and 21 million cases a year. You can hop on a little tram to take an approximately 45-minute tour of the visitor center, though you don't visit the distillery itself. Yes, you'll be offered two free samples. If you don't want to drive, you can reach the factory by taking the ferry from Pier 2

for 50¢ each way and then a público (public van service) from the ferry pier to the factory for about $2 or $3 per person.
