San Juan airport to Rincon - How?

I land in San Juan on a very early Saturday morning and need to get to Rincon on the west coast. I have no rental car or vehicle. What are my options? Taxi, is there a bus or Publico running from the airport.

Any help would be appreciated.

the easiest way to travel to Puerto Rico if your destination is Rincon is by a direct flight to the International Airport Rafael Hernández located in Aguadilla, but if you are arriving at San Juan instead then you need to find transportation to the western region. Taxi can be very expensive since it is hours long of traveling, public buses do not travel outside the metropolitan area of San Juan. There is a bus line called Mayaguezana that goes to Mayaguez but do not know their schedule or if they are working from San Juan.

You can get a publico ride from San Juan to Rincon. Two years ago, it cost $130.00. Tourismo now regulates the drivers' fares. They will fill out a slip of paper showing you the fare and speak to thee driver if there are any communication problems. If you want to be sure that one is available, there are a few publico drivers who live in Rincon and will meet your flight. The one I always use is Ramon. His number is 787-823-5938. Or you can fly to Mayaguez for $60.oo on Cape Air. Rincon is only @ 20 miles from the airport.

Many thanks for your assistance. Rincon was even more wonderful than we imagined. A "cheaper" form of public transportation between Rincon and San Juan would have helped, but we survived!
