If you wish to travel in Puerto Rico faster from a location to another, the best option you should select is the highways (known as autopistas). However, if you are on vacation and wish to take on a road trip in Puerto Rico, there are plenty of other options to try. These road trips will grant you the opportunity of exploring a whole new level of surroundings, awesome views and many uncommon attractions across the Puerto Rico. Here are some great road trip ideas for you if you plan to visit this beautiful part of the world.
From Barranquitas to Toro Negro: this covers a part of the Ruta Panoramica
The Ruta Panoramica (the Panoramic Route) goes right across the center of the Puerto Rico. You can have a great road trip from Eastern side of the land towards the Western part. In fact, this road trip gives you a complete view on the entire Puerto Rican land. Guayama is considered to be the starting point of the trip and it will be ended on the West Coast in Mayaguez.
The whole trip needs a minimum of 2-3 days. You can have a perfect view of the southern and northern areas of the island if you chose to drive just south of Barranquitas heading west towards Toro Negro. Apart from that, this trip allows you to view breathtaking central mountains and valleys too. Although there are not many lookout-spots to pullover the vehicle and enjoy, Mirado Villalba Orocovis is a great place to stop and experience some spectacular views.
Cayey – Guayama
You should get into PR15 to enjoy this road trip. It takes you from Cayey to Guayama along the south coast of the land. You will be amazed with the astonishing views of the mountains surrounding Cayey. The lush green surrounding along the area is quite refreshing in addition to the beautiful view of the eastern coasts. Then, when you drive towards Guayama, you will be able to enjoy the picturesque view of the southern coasts too.
It is always better to allow all the local, fast drivers to pass you; it allows you to enjoy the surrounding while assuring a safer drive. Be sure to pull over whenever you get a chance to enjoy the surrounding – there are no designated spots to look around
Yabaucoa – Maunabo – Guayama
If you wish to enjoy the views of the south eastern coast of the Puerto Rico, this is the ideal drive for you. There are plenty of beautiful views of Vieques and Culebra islands to mesmerize any individual. When you head towards the south along the PR 901 route, you will see great coastline views. During this trip, you will come across several cliff side restaurants. They offer the view of the oceans too.
Apart from that, there are plenty of other road trips you can experience in Puerto Rico, thanks to the versatile landscapes. Arecibo to Ponce, San Juan to Rio Grande and Joyuda are some of the other routes that give you unforgettable road-trip experience.
