Taxis in Condado

Taxis are the recommended way to travel in Condado

Most people who have visited Condado before will recommend using taxis as your main source of transportation rather than hiring a car if you plan to stick to the resort area.  This is because Condado is so close to San Juan, where public transportation is very good and traffic is known for being bad. 

Taxi Companies

Taxis in Condado are easy to spot, as they are white vehicles with the words "Taxi Touristico" on them. You'll find them outside of baggage claim when you arrive at the airport, near most popular resort hotels, at major shopping centers, and by the beaches and other popular tourist destinations on occasion. You can also call in advance and have a driver pick you up at a particular location.
