Taxi Fares Vs. Car Rentals
A question came up the other day; a couple wanted to know
what the taxi fare would be from Dorado’s Embassy Suites to and from the SJU
airport in Isla Verde? They were staying a few nights before getting on a
cruise. This question keeps coming up when we speak to our inquiring guest for
accommodations also. Please use Taxi stands at airports and hotels for upfront fair to your destinations. Ask for taxi and they will provide you with a form with destination price.
The price is about $60 plus gas surcharge and $1.00 per bag.
Our suggestion is “it’s cheaper to rent a car”; which will offers you the connivance
to *move around and not be stuck in the hotel for the length of your stay. You
are also on your own time schedule and not waiting around for a taxi to arrive
wondering if you are going to be on time. Most rental cars are cheaper than a
taxi especially the further you are from the airports. The taxi’s round trip
fair will be $120 plus; so a rental car may be cheaper. A taxi to Rincon from
SJU airport which is further out will cost about $200. Read our “Travel Money Savings Tips” to save on car rentals and airfare.
The further you are from the airport the more expensive your
transportation will be if you are using taxis. A great reason to stay in Dorado
where you are centrally located to everywhere in the island and only 30/35
minutes from the SJU airport.
Taking a cruise and arriving a few days early? *There are plenty of one day trips you can do to see and enjoy Puerto Rico in just a few days.

The only place you can get away with just taking taxis is in
Old San Juan where you can walk to most places and taxis are not too expensive
for the further away attractions within Old San Juan. But you will of cause not
get to visit the far away attractions and those will require a car so then
staying in San Juan is not the best as a
lot of places do not have parking.
Our accommodations offer you off-street parking with every
rental; you get an assigned parking spot in a gated safe complex which is
Villas de Costa Mar.
