rental car

Was wondering is it worth getting a rental car if you are staying at the Wyndham Rio Grande?

How far are the local restaurants from this resort?

Any recommendations on ground transportation to and from the airport?

I think it is very worth it- it will be cheaper than the hotel transfers and tours. But you will need to find out about parking costs at he hotel.

Local restaurants are not really walking distance but there are a number within a 5-10 min car ride.

With a car, you can come and go to do the things you want to do on your schedule, not when the tour bus plans it. And you can go to some of the lesser visited places.

Yes definately rent a car at SJU for the Rio Mar. It is about 45 minutes East of SJU and SJU is already on the far East side of San Juan so no city driving. Additionally the Rio Mar is only about 15 minutes from the rainforest. There are several local restaurants within 2 or 3 miles of the resort.. As for recomendationns for ground transportation from SJU, don't.
