Finding a taxi in Puerto Rico is usually no trouble. Cabs and shuttles are often found outside the main exits of tourist attractions or the front doors of hotels.
Taxis can be hailed around town on the street or you can call one to come pick you up. Trips around San Juan are metered fares. Within areas designated as “tourist zones”, the rates are fixed and posted. There is an additional fee for luggage, late night and airport drop-offs. The fares are paid — cash only — to the drivers. Tolls and tips are not included.
Upon arriving at the airport, taxis are waiting outside Terminal B and C exits, or outside Terminal A on the Arrivals Level. The airport has taxi dispatchers that advise passengers about the costs of their trips before you get into a cab.
There are other fixed rates for travel between towns as well as points of interest outside the San Juan District if you want to take a day trip but would prefer not to rent a car of your own.
