Driving from airport to Wyndham Grand Rio Mar and that area

How is the drive from the intl airport out to the Wyndham? My 22 year old daughter and 2 friends felt it would be more economical to rent a car rather than pay for 3 shuttle fares and then be stuck on the resort without transportation. How is driving around that area? Are the roads safe? We are from NYC and Atlanta so used to traffic, congestion, etc. Thanks for your help!

Your daughter is correct. It is more cost effective to rent a car than to pay for taxis separately.

Driving is all highway from SJ to Rio Grande. Easy for someone from NYC/ATL.

Now, I hope they know that hotel caters to families and there is no nightlife in the area...

Thanks for the info! As the mother I am thrilled there is no nightlife! They are taking a relative's timeshare for free so that was the draw. Would you know if they drive to Old San Juan what is the parking situation there?

There are a couple parking decks by the cruise port at the base of OSJ. Parking should not be an issue.

It is an easy drive to make it to the Wyndham and you are much better off with a car so you can enjoy restaurants and activities outside of the resort.

Yes, I did the research. Charlie Car rental which has gotten good reviews and is a local rental company in PR will rent to 21-24 year olds with a daily $10 surcharge. Enterprise and others will also rent with a surcharge; not sure exactly how much.
