Top tips for renting a car in Puerto Rico

  • In Puerto Rico, child car seat rules follow the US system, so children under the age of eight must travel in a suitable car seat. Children under four years old must be seated in a child seat, while children between the ages of four and eight and who are less than 4 ft, 9 in and below 80 lbs. must travel in a booster seat. Children under the age of 12 can sit in the front seat of cars only if airbags are disabled.
  • As public transport is lacking on the island, renting a car in Puerto Rico allows you to discover both the cities and the coast. Instead of spending money on tours, plan your own road trip around the island and venture beyond San Juan to Playa Sucia in Cabo Rojo, which is a 123 km (76 mi) drive to the southwest of the island.
  • If you plan to go off the beaten track with your rental car in Puerto Rico, it is worth considering a larger car. A four-wheel drive will benefit your journey around the rain forest, like El Yunque National Forest, especially with its abundance of hills. If you plan to visit the town of Ponce in the south of the island, you should rent a compact car to explore the Creole culture and seafront boardwalk.
  • Around Puerto Rico, you will find plenty of parking options, including free spaces. On most town streets, there are meters in blue zones, known as "Estacionamiento Pagando Metro," with yellow and white signs. You need to pay at the meter from Monday to Saturday, between 08:00 am and 8:00 pm, hourly rates starting at $0.50. In yellow zones, you cannot park in these areas at any time.
