Q: How do I get from the airport to my hotel and then to the ship?
A: San Juan has a great taxi system priced by zones, so there is little chance of being “ripped off” from one cab driver to the next. The drive from the airport to the terminal or to the Condado hotel area is approximately 20 minutes depending on traffic. The ship terminal is about 10 minutes from the hotels. Taxis are usually readily available and the drivers are very knowledgeable about the different ships and terminals as Miami is a busy cruise ship port. Average cost is around $20 plus $1 per piece of luggage.
