Ridesharing services are widely available in Puerto Rico, especially in urban areas and popular destinations like San Juan, Ponce, and Mayagüez.

If you’re staying around the Metro region, ridesharing is a great alternative to moving around during your time on the Island. The main rideshare app that is currently available on the Island is Uber, which debuted in Puerto Rico around 2016. Although there are still some regulations regarding where the service can pick up or drop off visitors, it’s one of the easiest ways to explore hotspot areas.  

For adventuring outside the Metro area, however, it is advised that visitors rent their vehicle, as ridesharing is not widely available in some areas of the Island. If you have questions about how to get around the region you will be staying in, a quick call to your hotel or lodging ahead of time can give you a clear idea on how to move around. Some hotels offer transportation to and from popular attractions like El Yunque Rainforest and Old San Juan.
