Top Tips For Renting a Car in San Juan

  • Because public transportation is limited and doesn’t go very far, you’ll want to rent a car during your stay in San Juan. A rental car will give you the freedom to explore places on the island, like Cueva Ventana or Arecibo Observatory. Additionally, you’ll be able to better explore much of the nature and picturesque scenery as you drive along the coastal highways. You can also drive through the rainforest – an unforgettable experience.
  • The San Juan Airport (or Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport) is just a few miles from the center of the city. Once you are off the plane, you’ll simply retrieve your rental car from the parking garage, or you can take a shuttle to the rental car desk. This airport provides many options for car rentals including locally own companies like Charlie Car Rental as well as nationally recognized companies such as Hertz or Enterprise.
  • The roads in San Juan can be a little bumpy and rough. Additionally, their narrowness can be somewhat intimidating to tourists. So, you’ll need to drive with caution even though you are sightseeing. Motorcycles are also very common in Puerto Rico, and motorcyclists tend to drive quite fast and will cut in front of you; so beware.
  • During rush hour the traffic can get a little heavy. The morning rush hour typically begins at around 8 a.m. and continues through 9:30 a.m. or so. In the evening, commuters will begin to return home at 4 p.m., which will cause some congestion on the road until around 6 p.m.
