Taxis and Uber

If you choose not to rent a car, taxis, and now Uber too, is good and fairly inexpensive ways of getting around Puerto Rico, especially around the tourist zones in San Juan.  You can either wave one down on the street or call one by phone (see the directory below) and they’ll take you anywhere in Puerto Rico.  You can also ask the concierge at your hotel for a list of recommended taxis in the area.

Tourist taxis have fixed tourism zone rates and are painted white with a “Taxi Turístico” logo-label on the door.  Taxis authorized by the Puerto Rico Tourism Company are available for non-tourist areas as well.  Some areas have fixed rates from San Juan and some are metered.  More taxi information & fixed rates for San Juan tourism zones.

Research has revealed that Uber and taxi fares in Puerto Rico between locations and vacation destinations average $2.00+ per mile one way (15% gratuity included).  Typically, there are additional charges as follows: Passenger(s) must pay any road tolls, $1.00 per piece of luggage, an extra $1.00 per trip between 10 pm and 6 am, and at times a gas surcharge of a dollar or more.

Public Bus System

If you’re staying in the metro area, Puerto Rico’s AMA (Metropolitan Bus Authority) offers various routes in the metro area.  Each ride is typically only 50 cents.

See San Juan Bus Routes Page and Map


Various towns in Puerto Rico have trolleys offering tours of the main attractions i.e. Old San Juan, Rincon.

Old San Juan’s trolley is always looping around the city and it’s free of charge making stops along with the main attractions.

Publico system

The public system is used by locals and can also advantageous for budget-savvy tourists. At the center of each town, there is a publico station.  The fees and routes are typically negotiable and a little cheaper than Taxi Turistico rates. However, vehicles are usually a lot older. But with some planning, you can pretty much get where you need to go.  You will need some basic Spanish to use the publico system since many of the drivers do not speak English; however, most drivers in the San Juan / Metro area speak English.
