Yes, you'll need a car if you want to move freely out of the hotel's premises, which are huge.

Rio Mar is close to most of the attactions in the east part of the island, such as El Yunque, Carabali, the Biobay, Las Cabezas Natural Reserve, the Outlets, Seven Seas, Luquillo beach and Kiosks, etc.

There are restaurants and fast foods in the area, but you'll need a car to get there.
