How much does it cost to Travel Puerto Rico!?
Puerto Rico is a fantastic country, steeped with world renowned beaches, a vibrant nightlife, rainforests and a rich Spanish colonial history.
How much Money you need to Budget for Puerto Rico, depends upon three factors:
- Travel Style: (Budget/Mid Range or Luxury)
- Number of Day Traveling
- Number of Persons Traveling
Practicalities for a U.S Tourist:
One major factor which appeals to many U.S tourists from the Mainland U.S.A is that Puerto Rico is a U.S territory. Thus they use dollars as there main currency, and you don’t require a visa or even a passport!

- Housing costs are 47% less when compared to US prices.

Should you rent a Car in Puerto Rico?
Renting a car is my favourite way to explore Puerto Rico! You can head straight from the airport easily and explore the island. It is also highly recommended if you plan on exploring El Yunque National Forest.
There are many rental car agencies at the airport but I suggest booking in advance to reserve your vehicle.
