Basic Information about roads in Puerto Rico
Older highways are usually given a number with a single digit. Double-digit numbers are given to relatively newer highways while country roads are given triple-digit numbers, and 4-digit numbers are given to minor roads or routes. Smaller routes can be really narrow, so drive with caution.
Finding a parking is not difficult but on the whole, this can prove to be expensive in touristy areas. In case you get a parking ticket, have a word with the car rental company; if they are fine with it, you can pay it at the local bank or police station.
