When it comes to exploring the island and getting around, we encourage you to rent a car for at least a few days to see the island.
Many tourists stay within the constraints of the resorts and we can’t blame them, some resorts offer great entertainment and pampering services providing everything you may need in a vacation, however, if you want to get to know Puerto Rico, get out and explore.
If you love bicycling get ready to explore our amazing trails. Some regions are more apt for getting around by bike. Learn more about getting around by bike.
If you are staying in the metro area, you can get around the city by taking the train. More about the train system in Puerto Rico.
By Public Transportation
Puerto Rico is a very modern island much like the United States, you can find taxis, a bus system and publicos (public / shared rides, fixed cost with set routes). More about getting around by public transportation.
There are public ferries transporting to the offshore islands of Vieques, Culebra and from the San Juan Pier to Catano and Hato Rey. Private ferries can take you to the offshore islands of Caja de Muerto in Ponce (south region) and Gilligan’s in Guanica (west region). More about the Puerto Rico Ferries.
