Hi Everyone. I have read a few posts indicating that the drive from San Juan airport to Ponce is fairly easy. I will be staying in Ponce and my wife will meet me after I arrive a few days in, she might need to get a rental car to get from San Juan to Ponce since I cannot get her.
Is it a safe drive? Does she need to worry about her personal safety? Is the drive like a rural road in the US, minimally maintained US highway, or like a normal highway interstate in the US?
My question isn't to have any indication that the area or people are unsafe or bad, I am just worried about her being alone in such an unfamiliar environment. She might also have some fears in driving alone while on vacation. Would US GPS or iphones with GoogleMaps (or some other map guiding software) work down there?
We are really looking forward to the island, history, and relaxing. Will be hopefully at the Hilton in Ponce.
