Top tips for renting a car in Puerto Rico

  • It is highly recommended that visitors of Puerto Rico rent a vehicle during their time on the island. First off, having a rental vehicle makes getting from Gran Canaria Airport to Puerto Rico - a drive of 47 kilometers (29 miles) - an absolute breeze. Second and most importantly, renting your own vehicle is much cheaper than paying for tour buses to take you across the island everytime you want to head out of town to sites such as the Caldera de Los Marteles (56 kilometers or 36 miles away).
  • Visitors arriving at Gran Canaria Airport who wish to pick up a rental car after landing will find the rental car counters located in the airport’s Arrivals Terminal.
  • Due to it being a resort town, Puerto Rico has numerous pedestrians on its streets. It is very common to see jaywalkers, particularly during the afternoon and evening hours, in the busier parts of town. Visitors should make sure to drive carefully and be cautious of any would-be jaywalkers.
  • Though most of the traffic in Puerto Rico is made up of holidaying pedestrians, there is the occasional rush hour traffic during the peak hours of the week. The usual morning rush hour lasts from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., while the afternoon rush hour starts up at around 4:00 p.m. and finishes up by around 6:00 p.m. or 7:00 p.m. In terms of roads to avoid during rush hour, GC-500 is one of the main culprits that drivers should avoid during peak hours.
