Traffic Information


The main road conditions in Puerto Rico are relatively good and the central highways are clearly marked and easy to use. When driving on smaller roads and side streets, we recommend using GPS as many of them can be without clear signage. Puerto Rico Highway 2 (PR2) connects San Juan to Ponce, and is the most widely used multi-lane highway on the island. Be aware that there are toll stops along the highways, many of which are between San Juan and Ponce, Puerto Rico's second biggest city. When planning your trips in and around San Juan keep in mind that many people working in Puerto Rico are based within the city. Therefore, it is possible you might encounter early morning traffic during the week. Congestion usually takes place between 6:30 am to about 9:00 am on the main roads going towards San Juan.

Sixt Tips

Taken by the Spanish in the 1500s, San Juan is known to be one of the oldest established European capital cities in the Americas. Puerto Rico's rich history has resulted in a landscape diverse architecture, influenced by the Spanish, and a population hailing from various backgrounds. In addition to Puerto Rico's cultural heritage, the island is also known for its breathtaking natural beauty. Having your own vehicle will afford you the freedom to get to know Puerto Rico beyond tourist attractions.

Before heading off to the beach, there is plenty to see and do in San Juan. The city's old town is renowned for its beautifully ornate buildings, which line the charming cobble stoned streets. To get a great view of the city, we recommend walking up to the Castillo San Cristóbal, a 16th-century fortress built by the Spanish in order to protect themselves from an attack on land. The fortress originally encompasses the city of San Juan, but today parts of it have been torn down in order to accommodate modern life. An afternoon at the Castillo San Cristóbal will take you through a maze of tunnels touched by 400 years of history, in addition to offering a bird's eye view of the Atlantic ocean.
