If you haven't purchased travel tickets you can fly in to Aguadilla airport (BQN), and from there is just a 30 min drive.

Now, from San Juan it will vary depending on your arrival time. If it is in a weekday at rush time (say 3-5:30 pm) you can easily add about 30-45min. All this if it is also in school days. Fridays are the worst days to drive. (going to San Juan AM, Returning PM)

Normally it is about 2.5 hours; it shouldn't take longer.

From San Juan Airport, the drive is 2-2.5 hours:

Take route 22 west to route 2 west. Pass the towns of Aguadilla & Aguada. (do not take road 115 in Aguadilla). Stay on route 2 south. Pass road 402. Take the next road to the right: road 115. Follow road 115 towards the town of Rincon.

From BQN:

Once you leave the Aguadilla Airport, make a left towards Route 107.

Make a left into RT 107 towards Route 2. Make a right into RT 2, and follow RT 2 towards Route 115.

(Do not take the RT115, RT111 exit, Aguadilla, Moca).

Wait until you pass the intersection of RT 402,

Whithin 3 minutes you will find RT115 to your right

(It will say 115 Rincon) Make a right onto RT115.

The drive is all highway (with tolls) until you get to the area of Rincon, were you will have to take rural roads to reach your hotel.

@nytoparis once you reach PR 2 the traffic lights start so that portion of the trip is not as fast as HWY 22 (toll road)

@visitthe coqui - yes, forgot to mention the traffic lights. But I think the OP wants to know how difficult the drive itself is.

JBRNewtown, yes there are things to see along the way, but it requires a little time. There is the Arecibo Observatory, the Rio Camuy Caverns, Mar Chiquito, and Cueva Ventana.
