Some visitors might find driving in Puerto Rico relatively dangerous, and tolls are payable on most highways.
Pick up a rental car from the airport and at the resorts. You must be at least 21, possibly 25, and will need to leave a major credit card.
The island’s minibuses, known as públicos, have yellow license plates marked with a P or PD and are the most common option for Puerto Ricans, although service is sporadic and often-interrupted en route.
For tourists, the white tourist taxis, sporting the “turístico” logo are plentiful around the ports and central San Juan, using fixed rates.
Buses in San Juan are run by the Autoridad Metropolitana de Autobuses, which operates throughout town and to the beaches. Schedules are dependable.
One Caribbean rarity is San Juan’s Tren Urbano (Urban Train) which links the city center to nearby Sagrado Corazon, Santurce or Bayamón. The Tren Urbano extends for just 12 miles, stopping at 16 stations.
Visitors can also pick up domestic flights from San Juan to Ponce, Aguadilla and Mayagüez, as well as Culebra and Vieques.
