Arriving in Destination

From Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport, fixed-price taxis cost per carload (with up to five passengers) $10 to Isla Verde, $15 to Condado and Ocean Park, and $19 to Old San Juan. Add $1 for each piece of luggage, and $1 between 10pm to 6am. Taxis line up outside of baggage claim areas, where taxi touts hustle passengers into cabs in a remarkably efficient way. Rates are visibly posted. If you find others going your way, consider splitting the cost – just agree on a final destination (ie only one stop per cab).

The bus is the cheapest option into town at $0.75 a ride. Look for the ‘Parada’ sign outside the arrivals concourse. The D53 and T5 buses serve Old San Juan. The D53 via Isla Verde, Ocean Park and Condado; the latter via Isla Verde and Santurce.
