Car Hire San Juan Airport 

Collecting a Hire Car from San Juan Airport (Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport):

When collecting a hire car from Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico, there are several things to consider:


  1. Side of the Road: In Puerto Rico, you drive on the right-hand side of the road, just like in the mainland United States.

  2. Documentation: Carry your driver's license. If you're an international visitor, check with the car rental agency to see if an International Driving Permit (IDP) is required or recommended. Car Rental Policies: You will find these detailed under `Important Information for the hire car of your choice, including details about excess, insurance coverage and options to upgrade along with deposit and payment card information. Breakdown Assistance is automatically included.

  3. Speed Limits: Speed limits are typically posted in miles per hour (mph). Common speed limits are:

    • Expressways: 55-65 mph
    • Urban areas: 25-30 mph
    • School zones: 15-20 mph
  4. Alcohol Limit: The blood alcohol limit is 0.08%, similar to many places in the U.S.

  5. Road Conditions: Roads in urban areas and main highways are generally in good condition. However, secondary roads, especially in the mountains, can be narrow, winding, and sometimes in less-than-ideal condition.

  6. Parking: In San Juan, especially in the Old San Juan area, parking can be a challenge due to narrow streets and limited spaces. Parking garages and paid parking lots are available.

  7. Tolls: There are toll roads in Puerto Rico, especially around the San Juan metropolitan area. Some car rental agencies provide electronic toll transponders for an additional fee.

Type of Car to Hire:

  1. Compact or Sedan: Ideal for city driving and visits to main tourist areas. Fuel efficient and easier to park.

  2. SUV: If you plan to explore more remote areas or the mountainous regions of Puerto Rico, an SUV might offer more comfort and capability.

  3. Convertible: Given Puerto Rico's tropical climate, a convertible could be a fun option, especially for coastal drives.

Sightseeing Areas:

  1. Old San Juan: A historic colonial district known for its colorful buildings, fortresses (like El Morro and San Cristobal), and cobblestone streets.

  2. El Yunque National Forest: The only tropical rainforest in the U.S. National Forest System, great for hiking and nature.

  3. Bioluminescent Bays: Mosquito Bay in Vieques and Laguna Grande in Fajardo are famous for their glowing microorganisms.

Distances to Main Resorts:

From Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport:

  1. Condado: About 10 km (around 6 miles), a 15-minute drive. An upscale beachfront neighborhood with hotels, casinos, and restaurants.

  2. Isla Verde: Only about 5 km (3 miles) or a 10-minute drive. Known for its beautiful beaches, resorts, and vibrant nightlife.

  3. Fajardo: Approximately 60 km (about 37 miles), roughly a 1-hour drive. It's a gateway to the islands of Culebra and Vieques and is known for its bioluminescent bay.

  4. Rincón: About 200 km (around 124 miles), a 2.5 to 3-hour drive. Popular for surfing and beautiful sunsets.

Remember to always check with your car rental agency about any specific requirements or recommendations they might have. Puerto Rico offers a mix of urban, historical, and natural attractions, making it a great place to explore by car. Safe travels!
