San Juan Transport


San Juan's downtown area is old with charming cobble-stoned roads, great for those wanting to explore on foot. So just remember to take comfortable walking shoes, or even hire a bicycle. In fact, many attractions have no convenient parking spots, making driving downtown frustrating.

The Metropolitan Bus Authority (AMA) service covers most of San Juan. Several routes, including those between the old town and the tourist districts, may be useful to visitors. To go farther afield, visitors can flag down one of the plentiful taxis or minibus taxis (publicos).

There is a flat-rate system for most destinations in the city, which often makes getting around by taxi quite economical but most travellers who want to explore the rest of Puerto Rico opt to hire a car, with international car rental agencies well represented.
