Price of cab from San Juan airport to port
We're thinking of skipping the cruise lines transportation from the San Juan airport to the ship. Does anyone know how much a cab would be for four people and probably six suitcases to the port? We're really thinking this would be cost effective for us, what are your thoughts?

ETA the name of the airport -- whoops!

It will cost you around usd 25 for the trip. I paid 22 for 4 people and 5 pieces of luggage. On which cruise are you going?

Thanks for the info on the costs. We thought it would be more cost effective to go by taxi.

We're leaving the middle of March to the Southern Caribbean. It'll be my third cruise to the S.C. and my husband and kids second. Can't wait to leave!

Hi Becky,
I think taking a cab is a good move. They charge by how many pieces of luggage you have. The ride itself should only take about half an hour. Just go to the taxi cab stand inside where you pick up your luggage and they will write out a ticket for the cab, very easy and much quicker than the cruiseline transfer.

Just came back from SJ the taxi is a flat rate of $14.00 plus $1.00 for each BIG luggage that is for the taxi not per person

When you get to the taxi stand tell them you want a van.They will call a van up to the front of the line.We will be doing the Seranade in two weeks and will be taking the cab it is the best way.

The price is roughly $19.00. I think there is a bag limit of one bag per person before they charge additional money for any additional bags. I believe the additional bag rate it $1.00 per bag.
I am cruising on the 20th and I think I will just use the RCCL transfer service this way once they take my bags, I won't have to worry about them until they are delivered to my stateroom.

2014 prices
We are going from San Juan airport to the Carnival port. Does anyone know what the price of a cab would be currently? Would like to weigh the cost and convenience factors. July 5th, 2014 11:14 PM

Definitely much quicker, easier, and cheaper to take a taxi than to screw around with the transfers provided by the cruise line.

Here's the latest information;

Basically, $19 per taxi each way (not per person), plus $1 per piece of luggage.
