Hotels/Transportation

HOTELS

We recommend (but have no affiliation) with the following hotels for the PRVB Showcase  - We have seen each of these hotels in person. 

Please note, that the hotels are located in the tourist areas of San Juan, while the event is located in the suburbs of San Juan.  With CRAZY San Juan traffic (and CRAZY CRAZY if it is raining), it can be a 45+ drive from hotel to gym.


Condado Area - Nice area, close to Old San Juan, plenty of restaurants, on the beach, a bit expensive:




Edge of Condado  - Close freeway access, 5/10 minutes from beach, typical business hotels

Ocean Park Area - Relaxed area with small hotels, mellow people, nice beach:

Isla Verde Area - Touristy area, good beaches, closest to San Juan Airport:

Airbnb - If you plan on staying in Puerto Rico for 3 nights (or more), then we suggest you look at www.airbnb.com.   They have properties all over the San Juan area, and the customer reviews allow you to know exactly what you are getting!

Expedia - The https://www.expedia.com website often has hotel rates which are lower than the property's own website, especially as you get closer to the date.


TRANSPORTATION

We recommend that you rent a car; all the major US car rental companies are located at the San Juan Airport and their rates are typical of any USA larger city.  Remember that Puerto Rico is a US Territory, so the Dollar is the currency, and your drivers license is valid.

Taxis - Taxi service in San Juan can be hit or miss, and it sometimes can be a challenge to locate a cab unless you are staying within a typical tourist area.  Taking a taxi from hotel to site is usually not a problem, but having a taxi come get you at the site may be difficult.

Uber - Urber is now in Puerto Rico!  We are not sure the number of Uber vehicles as Uber just started in San Juan but those of you familiar with Uber will be good to go!


Directions to the site:

The site of the PR VB Showcase will be the Borinquen Coqui Volleyball club in south San Juan - Click here for a map.


  • From San Juan take Expressway 52 south towards Ponce and Caguas
  • Veer off to the right for the exit for Road 199
  • Take a left at the light at the bottom of the ramp and go east on 199.
  • In about 3-5 minutes you will be at a light with a big McDonald's to your left
  • Keep going straight thru the light, and get in the left lane as you will U-turn at the following light.  After the turn you will be headed back toward the McDonalds.
  • Very Important - Look for a small sign that says "LA MARINA" to the right as you are approaching the intersection where McDonald's is and take the first veer to the right at this sign.  Do Not take the right at the McDonalds, as this is freeway entrance; if you missed the La Marina sign or turn, then go through the McDonald's light and make another u-turn.
  • The La Marina side road leads to the Borinquen Coqui complex and plenty of parking.
