Puerto Rico’s Pork Highway

Km. 27.7, PR-184, Cayey, 00736, Puerto Rico

There are several island spots where locals flock on weekends for favorite Puerto Rican fare. Love fried seafood? Head for roadside stands on the coastal road that runs through Piñones, or the west coast shacks in Joyuda. But if you’re jonesing for pork, then you’d best make your way to the mountain town of Guavate. Its “Pork Highway” is a carnivore’s fever dream, with whole pigs roasting to crispy, dripping perfection on spits. You’ll see that nearly every spot is ultra-casual, so don’t dress up, but be sure to bring some wet-naps because things could get greasy.
