Getting There & Away
The D45 bus picks up passengers on Av Los Gobernadores near the traffic circle at Av Isla Verde in the Isla Verde neighborhood. From there, the bus travels east past the Piñones beaches to the central plaza in Loíza Aldea. Bussing it is recommended during the Fiestas de Santiago Apóstol, when traffic and parking can be terrible.
Públicos (public vans) run between Río Piedras in San Juan and Loíza’s central plaza. On the return, públicos leave Loíza from a terminal three blocks south of the plaza. The schedule is erratic – prepare to wait if taking this option.
