Taxi cost from airport to 6165 Isla verde ave
My boyfriend and I are headed out to San Juan Dec. 11 2013. We're only there for a wk. but are on a tight budget. Any recomendations on where to stay? Also is it worth it to rent a car and drive to the rainforest vs. doing a tour?
Will be arriving at the airport in SJU at 7:00 am. Any advice on which hotel to get (around $90 or less) that is close to beach and walking distance to old San Juan? DO hotels provide shuttle services?
If not, and I arrive at 7 am, how to get cheaply to San Juan (bus/taxi) and what should I do until it is check in time? I know most hotels would let you leave your bag ( I have a small backpack) until a room is available. Meanwile, what can I do as far as walk and look for things.
Finally, any suggestions on what to do in 4 days?
Thanks in advance.

cost of taxi ride for 5 people to el san juan resort
We're a retired couple. We've done the usual internet search for budget accommodations in San Juan, and the same 4 or 5 places keep coming up, none of which are available (and some not acceptable, i.e., dorms). We'll be there in early January and again in late March. Would like to be near Old San Juan, but at this point would be happy to find a place within easy transportation from there. Wondering WHY PR is so expensive. We didn't expect it to be cheap like DR, where we will be the rest of the time, but can find almost nothing less than $100. Would stay a week or more somewhere if there were a price break for a longer stay. Any suggestions?
We are planning an October cruise sailing out of San Juan. We will be arriving From Philadelphia, PA-is it risky to fly in the day of cruise departure?
We're cruising into San Juan from our vacation around 7am on a Sunday and won't catch our flight home until 4 pm. We were interested in visiting the Bacardi factory maybe, is there a place to store bags at the airport or could we check them in very early then leave for the day?
How can I get from SJU airport to Aguadilla without renting a car? Any transfer companies (limo, shuttles) that offer rides there and back?

Are the hotels overly packed and touristy in Mid June. Im hoping to come down on my honeymoon and want to stay in the Rtiz, but i heard San Juan can be overly busy and I dont know if thats the feeling I want on my honeymoon,
Anyone have any idea on this?
My friends and I are going to Puerto Rico in June. We land in San Juan at 2030hrs, and factoring in all the delays and messing around I figure we won't be able to do much that night except sleep. I need a hotel for one night, then we're driving to around El Yunque to stay. I'm reading about San Juan Airport Hotel and it looks passable... Is there a better option that offers a quick, late-night shuttle from the airport or is this the best choice? Any help is much appreciated!
Hubby & I will be in SJ on a Fri/Sat in June before a cruise that leaves Sunday. We want to see the rain forest on Saturday won't arrive until Friday afternoon. We're trying to decide which tour to take OR rent a car for day and venture off ourselves. We'll be staying near Old San Juan at the Coral Princess Hotel. Would love ideas and advice. Thanks, Marilyn
Hello, I have purchased airline tickets to arrive in San Juan May 8 and depart 12th. We would like to enjoy the beach and the culture. I am looking for hotel recommendations in Isle Verde area. We do not need a full resort, just a quiet relaxing place, hopefully under 150/night.
Hi, I am traveling to Puerto Rico this Christmas season with my husband, 3 year old son, parents, mother-in-law and sister-in-law. I really prefer to rent an apartment/condo since it's more economical than staying at a hotel plus I get to enjoy the benefits of not being in a cramped hotel room. I'm looking at reviews and listings on Homeaway.com and VRBO.com. Does anyone have any advice or recommendations? I admit this is my first time so I'm really nervous. Any suggestions on how to go about picking a nice place would be appreciated:)
I need help, I am a student visiting San Juan for studies and I need a place to rent for those 3 months. I have looked online but truly don't find much if anything outside of hotel stays which for three months... yah too much$. My school is in Hato Rey area but I've been told to stay best by Miramar, Condado, perhaps Santurce (some areas)
Anyone know anything renting for the summer? Ideas?
It will be very much appreciated. Also I am looking to rent a car for that time frame.
We will be in San Juan for one night 26th Feb and then again 2 nights 10th and 11th March post cruise (ex FLL)...I am looking at staying at Hilton property as gold members to maximise benefits and currently looking at Double Tree by HIlton..does anyone know anything about this property. We do not have very long in San Juan...probably the afternoon and evening of the 26th Feb but will have travelled from Honolulu so will probably be shattered and then perhsaps 1.5 days on the 10/11 March ...we are not night time people so happy to get out and about during the day, so if you have any recommendations or must sees in a short period of time I would love to hear from you and thank you in advance
We are celebrating our 60th wedding anniversary by taking all of our family from a city near Chicago (15 people, including us) to the island of Vieques from December 23 to December 30, 2012. We made this decision before we started looking at the cost of air fares. The fare to San Juan from here is usually around325 round trip. Imagine our surprise to find fares ranging from around 1200 to 800 for the same trip on Kayak if we go Dec 23 – 30. We were not only surprised but shocked because we are definitely not in the Donald Trump financial range.
Our question is, are the fares liable to go down as Christmas approaches or are they liable to go the other way? Should we leap at the chance to buy them at the present very high prices or speculate that the airlines are just pegging them so high now because the dates are so far away?
Another question is whether calling the airlines directly and explaining our situation might get us a significant break.
All answers and/or comments are welcome. Thank you very much.
We are a group of 27 ages 1-78 celebrating my parents 50th anny in 2 weeks. We are staying in a house on the Wyndam Rio Mar property. We would like to visit Old San Juan for the day but need to find a shuttle company or someone that has carseats/boosters. Also someone that is not too expensive as we do not want a TOUR, only transportation to and from. Thanks!
I'm planning to go to Puerto Rico for four full days by the end of June or beginning July. I was interested mostly in spending time in a nice beach, visiting the Old San Juan and, if possible, going to Vieques.
Please does anyone know:
1) Which is the best beach in the San Juan area? Are there better beaches in other parts of the island worth visiting? Is is possible to reach them by public transportation? I don't drive, so unfortunately renting a car is not an option.
2) Is the Vieques visit possible in such a short time frame? If so, which is the most reasonable and decently priced way to go there? If you had to pick between San Juan and Vieques for the full stay, which one would you recommend?
I will be in San Juan, staying at the Caribe Hilton...I will be down there with three friends (all single males in their late 20's/early 30's)....Looking for some good places to go out. Bars/clubs etc..in that area..I can google something, but want to hear more from similar people who were there.
We are going to be in San Juan on the night of our anniversary, stopping via a Caribbean cruise. Can someone recommend a fun, festive, restaurant in Old San Juan that is unique and offers local cuisine? We don't want a super trendy fusion type of place, just somewhere with genuinely good food, drinks and cool atmosphere....?
We are planning ofn going to PR for the first time in late October. Looking for suggestions on what area to stay in. We are looking for laid back beach properties. Not into all inclusives, want to eat like the locals. We don't need night life either. Just looking for a quiet week where we can enjoy the water. Looking for a safe, clean place to stay - open to b and b's , hotels, guest houses, self catering. Not really fussy, but would like it to be on the water or as close to it as possible.Thanks in advance for your tips!
