Caguas is a very accessible destination. It is located just south of San Juan, only 30 minutes from the International Airport Luis Muñoz Marín and San Juan’s docks. The city is suitably located at the junction of the main highways connecting the north with the south (Road #52), and the center with the east (Road #30). 

 

Its strategic position in the central-eastern region of the Island allows easy access to the center of the island through the Roads #156 y #172 of the towns of Aguas Buenas y Cidra respectively.

  • San Juan 20.6 miles (33 km)
