Do I Need a Car in Rincon?
Most visitors to Rincon rent a car so that they can easily explore all the beaches, activities, restaurants and natural beauty of our corner of Puerto Rico. Driving in Rincon is easy. Its even easier if you purchase a copy of our Tourism Association Map or the Purple Lizard Rincon Map when you arrive at your hotel, guest house or resort. These maps make it easy to explore the best of Rincon. But don't worry - even without the map, if you take a wrong turn its just one more great place to discover. The roads are small two-lane 'country roads' with some twists and turns - but they are easy to navigate. The beaches all have public access and parking is available for most beaches.
If you prefer not to drive on vacations, you can take a taxi from the airport to your hotel or resort. Taxis are available to meet flights that arrive at the Aguadilla Airport (BQN) or San Juan Luis Marin Airport (SJU).
The areas in south Rincon that have less hills, Rincon's Caribbean Coast and Downtown are better suited to travelers without transportation. Walking is convenient to shopping and
restaurants and the Downtown Plaza is nearby.

San Juan Airport (SJU) to Rincón: There are a lot of steps in these instructions, but its really very easy and if you get lost, just ask anyone for Rincon! They are happy to point you in the right direction. The first hour from San Juan is on a modern toll highway (some rental cars are equiped with Speed Pass type cards, ask your rental company or bring about $4 in quarters, dollars are also taken but may take longer as only 1 or 2 booths will have an attendant to take them) and the style of driving is similar to any large metropolitan area in the mainland USA. Past Arecibo, the toll road ends and you take Hwy 2, a four lane highway with stop lights.
From SJU Airport - Stay right on exit from airport, follow signs to Highway 26 (San Juan).
