Avoid rush hour traffic if possible
With the major roadways into and out of San Juan or any other major cities in Puerto Rico, try to avoid rush hour traffic. It's basically a semi-standstill situation. To avoid traffic within the major cities, travel the major roads between 10:00a - 3:00p, evening, or early morning hours.Travelling the 20 or so miles from Humacao to Cagua enroute to San Juan along Route 30 took 45 minutes.In the picture, note that the shoulders of the road is used by the locals as a driving lane when in traffic. Also notice the pickup truck delivering plantains, yum.
