How long from San Juan airport to El Con Resort & other ?'s

We just booked our vacation and transfers for 2/04/11 - 2/09/11 to El Conquistador resort. Can someone tell us how long (miles and time) the commute is to/from the airport? Also do you know what the average daytime and nighttime temperatures are for that time of year? Finally, do we need to rent a car or can we take taxi service from the hotel to/from local food stores, rain forest, and/or restaurants off premises? Please let us know...thanks

The trip to and from the airport will take around 1 hr 20 min. If you want to save money, rent a car, do the transfers & sightseeing by yourselves. Even if you have to pay their high parking fees, you'll save a lot, since taxis & shuttle will be expensive. Check hotwire.com for car rentals.

Thanks - do you rent the car at the airport or at the hotel? Also do you know if a U.S. purchased Magellan GPS will work in Puerto Rico?

Yuo'll be able to get better prices either at hotwire.com; at the airport or in Isla Verde (at Charlie's car rental) than at the hotel. The car rental companies at the hotels have to pay fees to the hotel, so... they pass it on to you...

Your Magellan should work here, if it has the Puerto Rico maps included. I use a Magellan ( bought at Costco) when traveling around the island and mine has the US, Canada & PR maps. As a matter of fact, the route to El Con is a pretty easy one through mayor highways. Make sure your insurance covers in PR so you can avoid that extra charge, or pay the car rentak with AMEX, which will cover also.
