Getting Around in Puerto RicoEdit This
If driving doesn't appeal you can stock up on patience and take public transport. Minivans known as públicos link all decent-sized towns on the island. They have no set schedule and usually operate on short hops so be prepared for several changes if you're traveling a long distance and it's not between two major cities. Públicos are cheap sociable and recognizable by the 'P' or 'PD' on their license plate. You can flag one down anywhere. Metered taxis are plentiful in San Juan and other major tourist centers.
San Juan's Luis Muñnz Marín International Airport is on the eastern fringe of the city. There are car rental agencies at the airport and plenty of taxis and buses for the short jaunt into San Juan. There's a baggage check in Terminal C which is handy if you're island hopping and want to travel light.
Cheap government-operated ferries do the run from Fajardo to the islands of Culebra and Vieques. At least four ferries a day ply either route and the journey to either island is around one hour. It's possible to take a car including rental cars on the ferry to Culebra but it's necessary to book well in advance.
