Getting Around Puerto Rico

You’ll find that you have many of the same options in Puerto Rico as you do at home. Rental cars from the major agencies are available from AAA, Avis, Budget, Discount, Hertz, National, Thrifty, and other companies, especially in the San Juan area.

Driving is on the right and signage is bilingual. However, realize that San Juan is a major metropolitan area and just as difficult to maneuver as any other city its size. The Old San Juan area is especially congested, with old, narrow streets.

Taxis are a popular choice, especially within San Juan. A Taxi Turisticos program sets specified rates within certain zones. These taxis are white and bear the words Taxi Turisticos and a drawing of El Morro. These taxis are an excellent choice for first-time visitors. The drivers have received special training to serve the tourist zones. You'll find a taxi booth with English-speaking assistance when you walk out of the airport.
