Driving tips for your Ponce rental car

The beautiful island landscape of Puerto Rico makes it easy to let your eyes wander, but keep them glued to the road and be wary of aggressive local drivers:

  • Drive on the right side of the road.
  • On the freeway: the left lane is for passing and fast drivers, while the slower traffic stays right.
  • Road signs are not always easy to spot, keep a map in the car and use GPS when necessary.
  • Always make sure you have a spare tyre with your rental; some roads are in poor condition.
  • Keep change in the car for tolls.
