Visitor Center in Old San Juan Has Moved

Posted on Nov 3rd, 2008 by • Updated on Oct 4th, 2014

New Location of PRTC Visitor Center

The Visitor Center of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company in Old San Juan has moved to a new location. But don’t worry – it’s still easy to find. They only moved right across the street.

The Visitor Center used to be housed in the small Casita at Plaza Darsena. The new location is on the first floor of the Ochoa building which is on the waterfront, just across the street from Pier 1. As you can see, it’s just a short walk from the cruise ship piers.

The Puerto Rico Tourism Company is in the process of converting La Casita into a gallery, which will be the focal point of the Artisan’s Market (or el Mercado de Artesanias) in Plaza Darsena.

They still have a great staff to help you plan your day in town, with maps, brochures and the latest Que Pasa magazine. They are open everyday from 9:00am – 5:30pm.

10/14- note- Bar is currently closed until further notice :-( And if you want to try some delicious Puerto Rican rums, the free Rums of Puerto Rico bar is (supposedly) open from Saturday – Wednesday from 2:00pm – 5:00pm. The bar is closed Thursday and Friday.

  1. Flying into the airport to start a Royal Caribbean cruise. Is there a bus from the airport to downtown San Juan? And, what is the cost? Thanks

  2. I am looking for a map and travel brochure for Old San Juan. Could you send that to me?? Or do I order it somewhere else?


  3. You will need to contact the PR Tourism Company: http://www.seepuertorico.com Call or online chat with them. They can send you maps and the newest Que Pasa Magazine, but it takes a few weeks.

  4. The bus system is not really designed for tourists. There is one, but you can’t have luggage and I believe you need to transfer buses. But there will be plenty of taxis.

  5. What is the expected cab fare from the airport to mid-town Old San Juan (Calle del Sol)

  6. You need to look at this article: http://www.puertoricodaytrips.com/getting-around-by-taxi/
    For up to 5 people in 1 cab, looks like $19 plus $2 gas charge and any luggage charge $1 extra per bag. Then tip Also if it late night, that is an additional $1.

  7. Hello. We will be arriving in San Juan on Oct. 25. I have heard about the free trolley. Is there any way to get a map of the trolley system before we leave home?
    Thank You

  8. We don’t have it= maybe print off our map. Or you can contact the PR Tourism company, they might have a map. 1-800-866-7827

  9. Arriving San Juan early Sunday Morning and want to leave bags somewhere so we can visit the town before leaving mid pm for the airport. Can you advise where we can do this, Barrachina was suggested, but they do not answer.

  10. Barrachina still holds bags- every day from 9am to 5pm.
    I believe Aloha restaurant right across from Pier 4 in OSJ will hold bags.
