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.

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.
