Driving Tips

Driving Tips

Town centre roads and major highways are generally well-maintained in Puerto Rico but their condition in rural and mountainous areas is variable and you might encounter animals on the road. The islanders do have a reputation for fairly aggressive and fast driving although speeding is now heavily penalised. Signposts are written mainly in Spanish. Having a rental car does, however, reward you with some beautiful scenery and coastlines.

More tips for enjoying driving in Puerto Rico:

  • Drive on the right in Puerto Rico and remember that Kilometres are used for distances but speed limits are marked in miles.
  • Between the hours of midnight and 5:00 a.m. red lights can be crossed provided you come to a complete stop first.
  • There are four toll roads on the island and your rental vehicle should have an electronic payment tag.
  • Children under 12 can only ride in the front of vehicles if airbags are disabled. We recommend the use of appropriate child seats.
  • Paid parking is widely available on Puerto Rico but can be tricky to find at peak holiday periods.
  • Any damage caused to rental vehicles by driving off paved surfaces is your responsibility and will incur repair costs.

A hike through the* El Yunque trees* takes you into the heart of Puerto Rico's rainforest with its rich diversity and rare species of flora and fauna such as the Coqui tree frog and the endangered Puerto Rican parrot. The Cavernas del Rio Camuy are located in the Cavernas del Rio Camuy National Park. Several of the caverns are open to visit with different levels of fitness and effort needed.
