The island of Puerto Rico is a US territory, located in the northeastern Caribbean Sea. Home to 3.26 million residents, it's the 2nd highest state’ in terms of population density, and where the pina colada was invented. The island is 35.5 miles wide and approximately 110 miles long, which means you can get across the Island in just a few hours of driving, and you can enjoy Puerto Rico’s classic car culture along the way!

The first road in Puerto Rico

The first semblance of a road in Puerto Rico was the 16th century creation of Camino de Puerto Rico. Connecting San Germán to San Sebastián, Toa Alta, Arecibo and Caparra.

Well kept highways

Puerto Rico has always been renowned for its well kept roads, and records show as far back as the 1800s. These first highways were paved with “macadam” and were durable and inexpensive and made up of three layers of small broken stones, rocks, and cement. They were maintained by “Peones Camineros”, which roughly translates from Spanish to "road pawns", workers who lived in buildings along the highways spaced 6 km apart and were tasked with identifying and repairing the roads as needed. Each day the Peones Camineros walked along their assigned highway stretch, the three kilometers (1.9 mi) to the left and the three kilometers to the right of their home to visually inspect the road.

The average car ownership rate

Out of the 3.26 million Puerto Rican residents, just over 3 million are registered licensed drivers along with 3.3 million registered cars! According to DataUSA, as of 2020, most people commute alone, averaging 29.1 minutes, however, there are a lot of locals with a commute time over 90 minutes! With most Puerto Rican homes having 2 or more cars per household when it's time to replace your tires you can save big with affordable used tires at United Tires.

Scariest roads

Puerto Rico has two roads that have been labeled as dangerous. The first is Highway 344 (PR-344), located in Hormigueros and is notorious for being PR’s most dangerous (and scary!) road. Not only is it comprised of narrow lanes, but it's also in a rural setting and as it wraps around a steep cliff with hairpin turns, it has no safety barriers to prevent a vehicle from accidentally driving right off it.
The second is the Mata de Plátanos Bridge and the roads leading up to it on either side. The bridge and roads are only one lane wide, and Puerto Rico’s notoriously aggressive drivers can make this bridge a very traumatic experience to cross if it's busy and they are in a rush. So always be cautious and aware of the erratic driving of other vehicles on this stretch of road.

Interstate highways

Puerto Rico is home to 3 interstate roads. Now you might be thinking, what parts of the US do these interstates link up with? Well, while not connecting the island with the rest of the U.S Interstate Highway System, they do get funding from the U.S government and therefore get to keep their interstate status. The same scenario in both Hawaii and Alaska.

Speedway sensations

The Puerto Rico International Speedway (PRIS) also known as “The track of salt mines”, was built in 1985 to fulfill the needs of motor racing on the island. There are two circuit tracks: the shorter is 1.2 miles while the second is 1.8 miles long, as well as two straight tracks: the first is 1/4 of a mile and the other is 1/8 of a mile long. The track has seen the likes of The War of the Mechanics Old, Hot Rod Classic Acceleration, the Super Street Money Hunters, Cars, Shell Helix Championship, Super Pro, Pro E.T., Baby Pro, and the Junior Dragsters to name just a handful of the races and hosts events regularly! Something not to be missed for racing enthusiasts.

What tires do you need for Puerto Rico weather?

What tires do you need for Puerto Rico weather?
What tires do you need for Puerto Rico weather?
Puerto Rico has a tropical marine climate, with sunny, warm, and humid weather year-round, which also means tropical storms and afternoon showers are frequent across the island. The official hurricane season is from June 1st to November 30th while the wettest time of the year is from April to November. The temperature fluctuates between 76°F - 88°F in the coastal plains and 73°F - 78°F in the mountains, all year round. You will find the temp drops to 70°F during the nights and early mornings of January but heats up again during the day. There is no winter, spring, or fall, only summertime!

Summer tires

So, with all that heat and tropical conditions, we recommend getting around on a set of summer tires for your Puerto Rican ride! Summer tires are made from soft rubber with sticky additives, and have a rigid tread design so they do not melt in hot weather, plus an asymmetrical tread pattern with shallow grooves and tooth-shaped solid ribs to provide more contact between the rubber and the road surface. They are designed for excellent performance in both hot and wet/hot and dry conditions, so are suitable all year round in Puerto Rico’s consistent tropical marine climate.

Higher performing tires

Alternatively, if you drive a high-performance vehicle or sports car, or simply prefer better handling and superior grip for your ride, you might prefer to switch to one of our performance grade tires. Compared with a summer tire, they are designed with an even larger tread and therefore surface area to grip the hot roads, which assist with handling and performance, making your drive more pleasurable, especially for those with a rally driver racing style! We have 5 levels of performance tires ranging from the most simplistic grade, then high performance, ultra high performance, max performance, and finally extreme performance grades!

Drivers’ Puerto Rico guide: practical information
Drivers’ Puerto Rico guide: practical information
You’ll no doubt find things run a little differently here than on the US mainland. For instance, Puerto Ricans drive on the right side of the road, and distances get measured in kilometers but car speeds are in miles per hour! For that very reason, we’ve created this driver's guide to help prepare you for these differences plus unwritten road rules, parking laws, stunning scenic routes, fun facts, and much more.

Live traffic report

Peak hours in some areas of Puerto Rico can be a nightmare. Rush hours are from 6.00 a.m. to 8.00 a.m. and again from 4.00 p.m. to 6.00 p.m. Try to avoid driving anywhere during these peak times, especially if you are in a busy town or city. Expect to see people turning without indicators and ignoring traffic lights, you’ll no doubt be privy to cases of road rage with traffic jams sometimes tripling driving times to and from your destination!
It’s advisable to check ahead for traffic conditions as well as any chances of rain as in PR a flash storm can create flash flooding in certain areas and block many roads.
These websites will help keep you up to date.

Seasonal tire changeover

Year-round tires

Being a tropical island, Puerto Rico does not have a seasonal tire changeover mandate in place. With the constant hot and humid weather and variable rainfall, anywhere from 25 inches to 121 inches depending on your location on this gorgeous island, if you’ve got a good set of summer tires on your car then you are good to go! Summer tires are made from a softer, stickier rubber and are specially made for temperatures above 45°F to provide greater contact with the road surface. They are designed for excellent performance in hot and wet conditions, so are suitable all year round in Puerto Rico’s consistent tropical marine climate.

High performance tires

Alternatively, if you drive a high-performance vehicle or sports car and you want tires to match both your car and driving skills, then we recommend switching to performance, high-performance, or ultra high-performance tires to ensure you get great efficiency and handling from your vehicle.
Unsure of the perfect tire for your car? Then give the team at United Tires a call at 1-888-566-6214 and let our experienced, professional staff assist you with your needs. They are available 24/7 to answer any questions, help with recommendations and assist you with choosing the right tire for your requirements.

Driving Laws

  1. Mobile phone law: 9 § 5305 - Driving while talking or texting on the phone is illegal in Puerto Rico.
  2. Drink driving law: 9 § 5202 - For drivers 21 years of age and older, alcohol blood levels must be below 0.08%. However, if you are between 18 - 20 years of age OR operating a motorcycle or larger vehicle like a truck, school bus, heavy motor vehicle, and/or an all-terrain vehicle, drivers must be at a BAL of 0.02% or below.
  3. Seatbelt law: 9 § 5382, 9 § 5383 - Seatbelts are mandatory for everyone in the car. Children under 12 must ride in the back, baby seats are required for infants 0 - 4 years and booster seats are required for children 4 - 9 years old.
  4. Turning on red: 9 § 5222 - After first coming to a complete stop, drivers can turn to the right with a red light unless signs indicate otherwise.
  5. Speed limits: 9 § 5122 - Standard speed limits in Puerto Rico are determined by the areas in which you drive.
  • The speed limit is 25 mph in urban areas, except for public roads with four or more lanes, then increases to 35 mph
  • 15 mph in urban school zones/25 mph in rural school zones
  • 45 mph in rural areas
  • 65 mph on highways, unless otherwise specified

Unspoken Road Rules

Puerto Rico’s roads are mostly paved and wide, and you’ll find narrow and one-way streets in the mountains and some neighborhoods, along with aggressive local drivers! Here are some unspoken road rules to be mindful of!
  1. Puerto Rican drivers can be aggressive on the roads. They change lanes without a turn signal, honk at you, and cut in front of you if you’re slow. The right lane is for heavy vehicles or drivers under the speed limit; the left is the fast lane, although in Puerto Rico people drive wherever they feel like! Our advice? Drive defensively!
  2. Police cars always have their lights on it doesn’t mean they’re stopping you. However, if they put their siren on, it means they are either in a rush to get somewhere or are pulling you over.
  3. Now this is something… Distances are measured in kilometers however car speeds are in miles per hour. Watch yourself with this one!
  4. After midnight, you can drive through red lights so you don’t have to stay alone at the intersection. Always keep your eyes on the road and take practical safety measures when you’re driving around at night, like keeping your doors locked at all times.

Parking rules

9 § 5169 - It's illegal to stop, stand or park on a sidewalk, within the area of a street or highway crossing, or on a crosswalk. Also within 5 meters from a fire hydrant, a street corner, or a railroad track, of a bus station, before a traffic light, stop sign, or yield sign, or in front of a fire station.
The same rules apply for any bridge or elevated structure on a highway or within a tunnel, on all medians separating traffic movements, medians, traffic channeling, and seeded areas adjacent to sidewalks.
9 § 5171, 9 § 5172 - You need to park in either a parallel or perpendicular stance, depending on the road markings for that particular street.

Window tint laws

The percent of visible light allowed through your tinted windows is called VLT: Visible Light Transmission.
P.R. Laws title: 9, § 5285, cites two simple laws when it comes to window tinting on your vehicle.
  1. The percentage of light allowed through your film and glass here in PR is no less than 35%, for every type of vehicle.
  2. You can not use one-way glass for the windshield or glass windows of vehicles or motor vehicles.
The only exception to these rules is official vehicles of the Government duly authorized by the Secretary, as well as ambulances, bullet-proof vehicles, official vehicles of domestic violence victims shelters, and vehicles specially designed and devoted exclusively to the transportation of tourists.

Helmet laws

Motorcycle helmet law

9 § 5296. In Puerto Rico, they take their motorcycle safety seriously and require all riders and their passengers to wear:
  • A properly fastening, well-padded protective helmet
  • With a visor or goggles/safety glasses
  • Must wear safety gloves that cover palms
  • Must wear footwear that covers the ankles
  • Must wear long trousers that cover ankles

Tourist zones

However, the rules change slightly for tourists renting motorcycles in the Island Municipalities of Culebra and Vieques. They only require:
  • A properly fastening, well-padded protective helmet
  • With a visor or goggles/safety glasses

Bicycle helmet law

9 § 5322 - It is legal for all persons of any age to operate a bicycle without wearing a helmet unless otherwise provided by a municipal regulation.

Roads and highways

Although small in size, at 3,515 mi², Puerto Rico has 3 interstate highways which mirror the most important state highways, and countless other roads totaling 8,900 miles through the commonwealth’s tropical terrain. It can get a little confusing as a lot of the roads mirror each other, however, some have tolls, some don’t and some have formerly traversed others until recent construction changed all that! Divided into four networks, Puerto Rico’s roads and highways connect villages with bigger towns and cities across the mountains and coastlines that make up this lovely island.
Interstate PRI-1 -is 71.08 miles long and runs in a southwesterly direction from the capital San Juan to Ponce on the island's southern end. It mirrors much of Highway 52 (PR-52) and does not have tolls! Starting from Pier 1 at the Calle Marina in Veijo San Juan, in the northernmost part of the city its traverses through the capital and connects Caguas, Beatriz, Cayey, Vázquez, Coc, Salinas, Jacqua, Santa Isabel, Playita Cortada, Potala Postillo, and finally Ponce.
Interstate PRI-2 - Starts at Parque Central de San Juan and is a coastal route to Ponce along the western side of the island. It's 138.13 miles and passes through many towns and cities along the way including Manatí, Arecibo, Aguadilla Pueblo, Luyando, Mayagüez, San Germán Youco and Ponce.
Interstate PRI-3 - Also starting from San Juan, in Pueblo, the PRI-3 takes a southeast coastal route through Palmer, Fortuna, Luquillo, and Fajardo and finishes in Ceiba.
Highway PR-1 - PR-1 starts in Ponce and ends in San Juan, connecting Caguas, Cayey, and Salinas. It has several intersections with major highways such as PR-10 near Mercedita Airport in Ponce and PR-3 in Salinas and Rio Piedras. PR-1 is parallel to PR-52 throughout its entire routing.
Highway PR-2 - This is the longest road in the territory at 230 km, and connects San Juan with Ponce. Covering the northern side of the island, heading west from San Juan, almost mirroring the PRI-2, Highway PR-2 is 2 lanes wide and continues to hug the coastline down the western side of Puerto Rico connecting many towns including - Guaynabo, Bayamón, Manatí, Arecibo, Aguadilla, Mayagüez, San Germán, Yauco and Ponce
Highway PR-3 - At 165 km, PR-3 is the second longest highway and follows the eastern coastline. Beginning in Rio Piedras, connecting Fajardo, Humacao, and Maunabo. From Maunabo it takes a mountainous route to Salinas and runs into PR-1. Puerto Rico Highway 3 is the main highway from San Juan to Carolina, however, PR-66 recently opened as well as toll road PR-53 (not yet completed) which have been designed to take some of the load off the PR-3.
Highway PR-22 - PR-22 (also known as "Autopista de Diego") was built parallel to highway PR-2. The goal was to reduce congestion on highway PR-2. Highway PR-22 has several exits that provide access to highway PR-2. Highway PR-22 ends in the town of Hatillo, just west of the city of Arecibo. In Hatillo, highway PR-2 actually meets highway PR-22. During the course of its entire length, from San Juan to Hatillo, the two highways run parallel with each other, and they are never more than 10 kilometers apart.
Highway PR-53 - Highway 53 is the main tollway that parallels PR-3 going from Fajardo to Salinas. Its northern terminus is at PR-3 and PR-194 in Fajardo, and its southern terminus is at PR-52 in Salinas. Some sections are still under construction, and when finished it will have 2 tunnels, each at 1 km long, will be 95 km long, and connect the cities of Fajardo, Ceiba, Naguabo, Humacao, Yabucoa, Maunabo, Patillas, Arroyo, Guayama, and Salinas.

Scenic drives

With endless stunning beaches and lush mountain backdrops, hitting the open road is the perfect way to explore the landscape and culture of Puerto Rico. Full of natural beauty and exciting adventures, check out these scenic routes to see a different side of the island to the bustling city streets and popular beach resorts it is known for.

La Ruta Panorámica Luis Muñoz Marín (the Panoramic Route)

The Panoramic Route is 167 miles of pure adventurous driving, ideal for nature lovers and confident drivers looking for out-of-the-box experiences. This incredibly scenic route will take you through the heart of Puerto Rico, the Cordillera Central mountains, with highlights of the tallest point on the island Cerro de Punto, Toro Negro Forest Reserve, San Cristobal Canyon, and Caguana’s Indian Ceremonial Park, home to Taino ruins. Enjoy farmlands, waterfalls, and much of Puerto Rico’s majestic, lesser-explored backcountry.
This route is not for the faint of heart! Not only will you find yourself on precarious steep climbs, skirting around sheer cliffs, navigating extremely narrow blind corners and slick hairpin turns, but be warned, it's also the favored route for party buses, large trucks, and crazy local drivers. Beginning in the westernmost town of Mayagüez, traveling west-east to the southeastern town of Maunabo you’ll pass through Las Marías, Maricao, Sabana Grande, Yauco, Lares, Adjuntas, Ponce, Jayuya, Villalba, Orocovis, Coamo, Barranquitas, Aibonito, Cayey, San Lorenzo, Patillas, and Yabucoa.

Beautiful beach route Cabo Rojo Loop

Cabo Rojo is home to some of the island's most stunning beaches and you can relish them on this 18-mile route. Taking in Playa Buyé, Boquerón, Combate Beach, Playa Sucia, and the Cabo Rojo Lighthouse, this route begins from Cabo Rojo heading southwest along PR-307 to Boquerón, where you’ll continue south on the PR-301 and much smaller roads to get to these coastal paradises. Take in the limestone formations and walking trails in Punta Guaniquilla Nature Reserve, brilliant white sands on picturesque beaches, endless beach bars, pink salt flats, limestone cliffs, and everything in between.

El Yunque National Forest Trail

El Yunque is a very special place to visit when on the island of Puerto Rico as its the only tropical rainforest in the entire United States. With stunning views of this diverse landscape, you can enjoy the breathtaking scenery with mountains, rivers, lakes, and sheer cliff faces. At just under 29,000 acres in size, this national forest trail offers camping, hiking trails, picnic areas, and waterfalls. Take the PR-191 from Palmer and head south until you arrive at the National Forest entrance. Alternatively, you can take the PR-186 south from Rio Grande and check out the majestic scenery from the west.

Island hopping to Vieques

Vieques is a gorgeous island located just 7 miles off the mainland. Starting at Ceiba on the east coast, take the 30-minute ferry ride along with your car then explore the lush island at your leisure. There are built-up areas to the west of the island and the 30-mile route includes the likes of Sun Bay Beach, the boardwalk of Esperanza, the black sand, volcanic rock beach, Parque de la Ceiba for the island's oldest tree, and Mosquito Bay for the bioluminescent wonders that live there. If you are lucky you’ll catch a glimpse of the wild paso fino horses while enjoying the beautiful and fairly quiet island. To the east is a very rural route that will take you to several beaches including Caracus Beach, Secret Beach, Playa la Planta, and the historical landmark Cayo Yayi.

Chinchorreo Routes - a foodie's paradise

A very authentic Puerto Rican style of road trip is known as a chinchorreo, which involves driving along a certain mountain or coastal route, stopping at various roadside kiosks and dive bars serving Puerto Rican staples. Have a snack, drink, and dance, and head on to the next establishment! A favorite pastime of locals for weekends and holidays and plentiful venues are providing great snacks, live music, pool tables, and even jukeboxes for having fun with friends all the while delighting in Puerto Rican hospitality and reveling in the beauty of the surroundings.

There are many other exciting routes including:

  • Bayamón – Comerío
  • Cayey - Aibonito
  • La Ruta de la Longaniza - Orocovis
  • La Ruta del Lechón - Guavate

The best tires are summer tires for your ride in Puerto Rico. That being said, if you prefer better car performance and handling in the Enchanted Islands year-round summers, we recommend using performance tires.

Can I drive on summer tires all year in Puerto Rico?

Yes, absolutely you can. With Puerto Rico’s delightful constant summer temps of 73°F - 88°F across the entire island, we recommend summer tires or performance tires for your vehicle throughout the entire year. You can save big with used summer and different levels of performance tires when you shop online with us at United Tires.
