Getting to The Cervantes
By Taxi: Taxis from the airport, convention center or cruise ship terminals are controlled by the Puerto Rico Tourism Company. Look for their representatives who all speak English and they will give you a receipt with a flat fee depending on the area of San Juan you are going. There is an additional charge for each piece of luggage and a surcharge for trips at night. The price from the airport should be approximately $22 - slightly less from the convention center. Cruise ships may be less than this depending on which pier your ship uses. Tell your taxi driver that The Cervantes is on RECINTO SUR - across from the parking garage.
Driving Instructions: All rental car agencies at the San Juan airport are 'off premises' and you have to take a shuttle bus to their satellite office. They will help point you in the right direction toward Old San Juan. Follow the highway until you reach the lagoon and continue past the Capitol Buildings. You will see the old fort on your right as you enter Old San Juan. Take a left at the main plaza and continue straight and swing around Teatro Colon. You will see the parking garage to your left (look for Banco Santender). Parking is available in this garage, so go up the ramp and take a ticket before you find a parking space (you will pay at the cashier's window on the main floor when you are ready to leave the garage. The Cervantes is right across the street from the garage.
From Cruise Ship Piers: There are several different cruise ship piers in San Juan. Some of the piers are just a few blocks from The Cervantes. Other piers are located about a mile away near the new Puerto Rico Convention Center (Pan American Pier) and you will need to take a taxi to Old San Juan. Check with your cruise ship to see which pier they will use while in San Juan and if they have made arrangements for a shuttle bus or transfer service into the old city.
Private Car Service or Limousine Transfers: Our front desk can arrange a private car service or limousine to meet you at the airport or cruise ship pier. Costs vary depending on type of service and number of people - call 787-724-7722 for more information.
