Every corner of Puerto Rico and its surrounding islands are accessible, no matter how hidden or far away they may seem to be. Where you are going is the key factor in determining which mode of transportation will better suit your needs. In typical tourist areas such as Old San Juan, Condado, Miramar and Isla Verde walking, taxis, and the public transportation system are more than enough to get you around. But if your plans take you outside the Metro Area limits, renting a car or a chartering a bus might be your best option.
Renting a car is fairly easy and the most convenient way to explore Puerto Rico's unlimited beauty. Most of the well-known car rental companies can be found at the Luis Muñoz Marín Airport and in and around the larger cities. Local companies offer competitive prices and great service.Check which company better suits your budget and location.
Taxis are a good and fairly inexpensive way of getting around Puerto Rico. You can either wave one down on the street or call one by phone and they’ll take you anywhere in Puerto Rico. Some taxis have fixed rates and some are metered, it all depends where you're going.View list of taxi companies.View rates for the different zones.
Our Tren Urbano, or “urban train,” is an efficient way to move around certain parts of the Metro Area or to just tour some of the urban areas. The Tren Urbano operates from 5:30am to 11:30pm daily and is 75¢ for a one-way ticket. It’s part of a public transportation system that works together with the public bus system and covers most of the Metro Area.Get to know the routes and see where it can take you.
The Metropolitan Bus Authority, or AMA, is Puerto Rico’s public bus transportation system. If you’re not in a hurry, the AMA is a cheap way to get around the Metro Area. Each ride goes for 75¢ and drivers don’t provide change. Bus routes are identified with a letter followed by a number and most service routes stop at 10:00pm.See which bus routes are closest to you.
If the heat or the steep hills of Old San Juan get the better of you, the Old San Juan Trolley Tour is there to save you.

There are two ferry stations in Puerto Rico, the Aqua Espresso in Old San Juan and the Fajardo Station. Aqua Espresso is located in Pier 2 and for 50¢ it takes you to Cataño, where a short taxicab ride will get you to the Bacardi Distillery Tour. The Fajardo Station is used for travel between the mainland and the islands of Culebra and Vieques. One-way tickets are $2 for Vieques and $2.25 for Culebra but capacity is limited and so are the departure times.Take a look at the departure times and don’t get left out.
A bike ride is a great way to really appreciate your surroundings in a unique and personal way. The boardwalk in Piñones is a perfect place to safely take a stroll on your bike, breathe in the sweet ocean mist and chow down on some delicious fried goodness.

Sometimes it’s the simpler things in life that bring us the most joy. Walking gives you the chance to slow down, appreciate the details and really take it all in. In a city like Old San Juan, where every nook and cranny is packed with history, a good walk is the only way to notice things that would otherwise be invisible from a drive by.Uncover the path to the most spectacular walks you will ever take.
