Default Walking in San Juan

My husband and I are flying into San Juan the night before our cruise departs. We do not want the hassle of renting a car. How price effective are taxis here and is it safe to walk after dark? Our hotel has several decent restaurants within walking distance.

Thank you!

San Juan is like many other large-ish cities; there are some places you'd be advised to stay away from after dark, but most of the place is fine. We spent a good part of last February there, walked to many restaurants and had no problems. We did use a taxi a couple of times; interestingly enough, they both turned out to be Uber cars used by the taxi company. Prices seemed very reasonable. We also rented a car for a few days, to visit some more distant locations on the island. We were very impressed that even in heavy traffic other drivers were very polite about letting someone from a driveway or side street enter the flow.

I too have felt safe walking in San Juan. We have taken taxis there a few times with no problem whatsoever.

I did a cruise on Adventure of the Seas; out of San Juan. We walked all over downtown old town day and night, Taxi's are everywhere near the port.
