Taxi Companies

In Caguas, you'll notice taxis here are easy to spot thanks to the words "Taxi Touristico" which are painted on the front. The vehicles tend to be painted white, but could come in the form of a four door sedan or a full-sized van. If finding a cab becomes difficult, simply call and have someone pick you up. Otherwise, you'll find the act of riding in a cab is similar to what you might experience in the United States.

If you would rather call for a cab to be ready for you at a preset time and location, you may want to get in touch with one of these the following cab companies.

Rates, Fares, and Fees

Taxis in Caguas have meters in them, yet most drivers will prefer to keep them shut off and negotiate a rate that everyone feels comfortable with. If the meter stays on; however, you'll pay $1(USD) to start, then another $0.10(USD) per one-third mile. This is different than in San Juan where taxis operate on rates set by the government, so if you'll hire a taxi to get you from the international airport to Caguas you can expect to pay the flat charge of $55(USD).
