There is a bus stop 3 blocks from my house, from airport, it would be 2 busses ($.75 per bus = $1.50 total). The closest beach is 2 busses away or about 30 minutes. There are many restaurants within walking distance - mostly fast food and a few nicer places: Longhorn Steak House, Famous Dave's Rib Joint, Denny's, etc. (nothing I would describe as "fine dining". By bus, we have Plaza Carolina which is a good sized mall with restaurants like Chiles.
Ease of public transportation: about a 7 on a 10 point scale, it is possible but I highly recommend renting a car purely from a time viewpoint if your budget allows it.
If you will be coming by Taxi, MAKE SURE YOU TELL THE DRIVER TO TURN ON THE METER. Drivers here are notorious for overcharging by NOT using the meter. Trip here should be no more than 20 bucks. If driver refuses to turn on meter, politely get out and tell the taxi attendants you need a cab with a meter.
If you haven't been to Puerto Rico, be prepared to relax: Nothing here is fast except the folks on the highway (cross at the green, not in between... but ALWAYS check and recheck that folks are stopped). It's a beautiful island and the people are warm and friendly. Come explore or just relax on one of the great beaches and recharge your batteries. Enjoy!
Lastly, I have another apartment listed here on AirBnb. Should this listing be full for your dates needed, please contact me to enquire about availability.
First floor only.
