Taxis in Humacao

Taxis are a great option for tourists in Humacao

Humacao is a destination known for its outdoor pursuits, and many tourists will lean towards renting a car so that they can get out on their own and explore.  Not everyone can, or wants to rent, and for these people, taxis are a great alternative.  

Taxi Companies

The process of getting a taxi in Humacao may be a bit different than some of the more popular tourist destinations in Puerto Rico.  While it is possible to spot the white vehicles out on the streets – especially areas where tourists are known to frequent – often you will have to call and have a driver pick you up.  To do this, you can have the front desk at your hotel call and arrange a ride for you, or you can keep the numbers of local drivers on hand so that you're never left stranded.  

The following table enables you to get a hold of a local taxi company.

Rates, Fares, and Fees

The cost of hiring a taxi in Humacao will depend on your driver.  Some like to settle on a fare that both the passenger and the drivers feel comfortable with, while others will keep the meter running.  In that case it is $1 to start and $.10(USD) for each one-tenth mile.  Things are a little different in San Juan, where rates are set, so if you plan to take a taxi from the international airport there to Humacao, you'll pay $77(USD).
