Me and my family (8 of us) will need transportation from airport to pier. Has anyone taken a cab? Price? (just to have an idea) and how far to pier? Thanks

From what airport to what pier? It makes a big difference!

The pier in SJU from the airport is about a half hour ride. Once you collect your luggage downstairs, go to the taxi stand and arrange a taxi, they will give you a form, you then go out and get into the taxi line. Only takes a few minutes, and the price is on your ticket, just include taxes, they determine the price by how much luggage you have. You may end up getting 2 taxi's, but the price should be around $25 total, plus tip, all very easy and much quicker than using the cruiseline transfers there.

for 8 people with luggage will definatley need at least two taxis. you have the link for the taxi rates, now compare it to the cruise ship transfers. If you want to keep everybody together to make sure that you all get to the pier, then i would look into the transfers.
