What is the Taxi Zone for My Hotel?

San Juan TaxiGetting around in the greater San Juan area is easy by taxi. The Puerto Rico Tourism Company has defined five tourism zones that encompass the areas around the SJU airport, Isla Verde, Condado, Miramar, Old San Juan, and the cruise ship piers. Taxi fares within and between these tourism zones are fixed and posted. Outside of the tourism zones you will be charged the amount on the meter.

The tourism zones are defined as follows

  • Zone 1 – Luis Munoz Marin (SJU) Airport
  • Zone 2 – Hotels in the Isla Verde Area
  • Zone 3 – Hotels in the Condado and Miramar Areas
  • Zone 4 – Hotels & Piers in Old San Juan, Puerta de Tierra, Pan AM Pier, & Miramar
  • Zone 5 – Convention Center & the Luis Rivas Dominichi Airport in Isla Grande

In order to figure out how much your taxi ride will cost, you need to know the zone where you’re catching the taxi and the zone of your destination. Once you know what zones you’re traveling between, you just look that up on the price list and … BINGO! … you know the cost. For example, let’s assume that you want to travel from Zone 2 to Zone 4. A quick glance at the taxi rate chart and you know that the cost will be $19.00 (+ gas surcharge and a charge for luggage).

By now I bet you’re wondering How do I know what zone my hotel is in? That’s where the following list comes in handy. We’ve listed the major hotels in each zone. Just use that information, along with the taxi rate chart and it’s easy as pie.
