Is Puerto Rico Safe to Travel? Tips From a Solo Female Living on the Island

I was born in Bayamon, Puerto Rico and moved back to the island as an adult. I have lived in Puerto Rico full-time since September 2019, in the town of Humacao. 

I regularly write about Puerto Rico for outlets like AFAR, TripAdvisor, and Travel + Leisure. 

As a location independent writer and travel content creator, I have the option to live anywhere in the world. Out of all the possible places, I choose to live in Puerto Rico. 

Here’s why. 

Brief History of Puerto Rico

For those of you unfamiliar with the island, Puerto Rico is a stretch of land spanning 100 x 35 miles in the North Atlantic Ocean.

It was discovered by Christopher Colombus and throughout the years became a unique blend of African, Taino and European cultures. 

Today, Puerto Rico is a commonwealth and unincorporated territory of the United States.

It has a governor but no representation in Congress and Puerto Ricans do not vote in national elections.

Puerto Ricans are United States citizens by birth. There is no passport required to visit Puerto Rico and your phone works the same as it does in the U.S., no roaming required

The outlets are the same as in the US, so you do not need a converter if you’re coming from the States. The currency is USD.

In terms of natural beauty, Puerto Rico is a tropical paradise and home to the only rainforest in the United States. 

It has bioluminescent bays, thousands of caves, untouched beaches and diverse flora and fauna. 

Is Puerto Rico safe to travel after Hurricane Fiona?

Hurricanes Maria and Irma hit the island in the fall of 2017.

Many buildings sustained damage such that it was no longer profitable for the businesses to remain there, having to incur the cost of rebuilding.

Federal relief funds were slow to trickle down to the people, if at all. A large percentage of the island was without power and it was hard to find even the basics like food or gasoline.

The damage was so bad, and the surrounding press so negative, that people equated Puerto Rico with devastation.

Power has since been restored to the island. Many businesses have rebuilt.

While there was an exodus of locals, new people have moved to the island with the goal of reinvigorating industries like agriculture and the arts. 

5 years later, Hurricane Fiona hit the island, in September 2022. This was a Category 1 hurricane.

While there was flooding in certain parts of the island, the majority of the island was minimally affected. 

As of September 25, 2022, most major hotels are up and running with electricity restored. I live in Humacao, on the southeast coast of the island, and I have power, internet, and all my plants survived the storm.  

It is safe to travel to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Fiona and the island is open for business.

A majority of your planned activities will be unaffected as the regions that sustained flooding and damage are not typically tourist areas. 

If you’re worried about hurricanes or tropical storms, avoid hurricane season which lasts from June to November. This is the cheapest time to visit, and also the hottest. 

Note, I’ve been here throughout the entirety of hurricane season and it’s still sunny and you can do a lot of things. This is only for your personal preference.  

There is 5G WiFi on the island. There is also Starlink now, for anyone considering moving to the island.

Your GPS and phone will work here just fine. I recommend using Google Maps over Apple Maps since the latter can be a little wonky. 

Does Puerto Rico have COVID-19 Restrictions?

Puerto Rico had strict lockdowns during the pandemic, but much of that is gone now.  

US residents do not need proof of a negative COVID or vaccination to enter the island. International travelers do need proof of vaccination, but no test is required. 

There are lingering restrictions throughout the island. Walgreens, for instance, still requires masks. So do certain theaters and performance venues. 

The government has left it up to the businesses so you may still need proof of vaccination or masks to enter certain restaurants or stores. 

For the most part, though, you’re free to move about.

Is Puerto Rico Safe for Female Travelers? 

Are you traveling to Puerto Rico solo? Great! There’s lots to see and do. 

I feel safe traveling in Puerto Rico on my own as a female. 

All students learn English in school and everyone speaks it (unless they’re so old they’ve forgotten or they’re just messing with you).

That said, making an effort to speak Spanish goes a long way. I recommend learning the basic words like thank you, bathroom, and buen provecho, which means bon appetit. It’s courtesy to say to anyone you see eating. 

San Juan, the capital, is just like any other major city in the U.S. — you should keep your wits about you, but it’s fairly easy to traverse on your own.

Unlike big cities in the US, there is much less racial profiling here (many Puerto Ricans have African roots) and there are rarely mass shootings since gun laws are strict. 

Old San Juan is one of the most walkable and safe containers there is, welcoming cruise ships and tourists by the thousands. 

If you’re in the San Juan metropolitan area, which is where most tourists stay, you’ll have all the same amenities as home including Uber Eats, Lyft and a ton of different concerts, events and gyms. These are harder to find elsewhere.

Looking for the State Department Travel Advisory on Puerto Rico?

You won’t find one, because it’s part of the United States. 

It can be harder to travel alone outside of the metro area, simply because you won’t find the same conveniences. There are no rideshare services or food delivery. 

Public transportation is basically nonexistent. If you’re leaving San Juan, you need to rent a car.

I recommend Charlie Car Rental. They’re a local company that never has a long wait, is upfront about fees and costs, and has reliable vehicles. Book with them directly instead of using a third party like Kayak or Discover Cars. 

There is a culture of machismo on the island, aka male toxicity — I won’t deny this. However, this is slowly changing with icons like Bad Bunny wearing female clothing and kissing men in an attempt to normalize it. 

As a female, my advice would be to drink responsibly, let someone know where you are and share your location on your phone with a family member, and avoid tagging yourself in places until after you’ve left. 

This is advice I would give to solo travelers no matter where you go. 

What is traveling in Puerto Rico like? 

Puerto Rico has U. S. street signs, U.S. law enforcement, U.S. hospitals.

The police don’t carry machine guns, something that’s always put me on edge about other countries.

People drive on the right side of the road.

You do not need an international driver’s license, just your regular driver’s license. 

There are direct flights on airlines like American, Spirit, Delta, and Frontier. 

Puerto Rico has 3 airports but the biggest and the one you’re most likely to fly into is SJU, San Juan International Airport. 

Note, when you leave you’ll need to get an agricultural inspection and sticker of your bag before dropping it off with the gate agent — don’t make the mistake of lining up first cause you’ll have to make the line twice. 


What are the best neighborhoods to stay in Puerto Rico?

As far as neighborhoods go, certain spots are easier to navigate as a tourist.  

The most popular spot is Old San Juan. It is walkable, easy to access, and has everything you need. 

Beyond that, there are neighborhoods that are part of the larger metro area like Isla Verde, Condado, and Miramar that are popular. 

For beach towns, consider Luquillo on the east coast and Rincon on the west coast. Rincon has a large expat community, vegan friendly restaurants, and the best sunsets on the island. 

If you’re coming for a family vacation, I recommend Palmas Del Mar in Humacao. This is a luxury resort community with everything you need on the property, from restaurants to boat tour operators. 

For a secluded mountain retreat where you can get back to nature and participate in forest bathing, head inland to Utuado


What is the most dangerous city in Puerto Rico?

As with any new place, you want to be cautious.

Puerto Rico is safe but it’s not without its problems.

There are frequent carjackings. Honda Civics seem to be the most in demand.

Don’t leave your valuables in plain sight when you park your car. Be careful driving at night (and in general cause people drive like New Yorkers here).

There’s also issues with gangs and drug wars on the island. If you’re staying in San Juan I wouldn’t suggest going to La Perla at night. For the most part though, this won’t involve you.

I also recommend being careful in Santurce at night. There is a large homeless population here and the area is a little rough. 

If you’re going out in La Placita for dancing, keep your wits about you. Loiza is another neighborhood in which I would recommend you exercise caution at night. 

Weed is legal on the island. Tourists can get a tourist prescription valid for 30 days and go to a dispensary.

Unless you’re looking for harder stuff you shouldn’t be in a situation where you’re in the middle of a drug war.

I’ve lived in the U.S. almost all my life and have yet to have an altercation with a heroine or coke dealer, for instance, despite knowing that they’re there. 

Occasionally there are protests on the streets, limited to the metro area. They could be protesting anything from politics to power outages. I would avoid these demonstrations. 

What are common scams in Puerto Rico?

While scams are not necessarily common, they do exist. Here are some to be aware of: 

Taxi scam 

When possible, I recommend using rideshare services because you know the price ahead of time. Uber and Lyft can both pick you up from the airport.

Otherwise, when you get in a taxi make sure they turn the meter on. Some of them will try to charge you extra or complain about the distance and say their original quote was wrong. 

They may also claim they don’t have change if you’re paying in cash. In general, I would avoid taxis unless absolutely necessary. I live about an hour from San Juan so if I do need to get to the airport, I would arrange an airport transfer.

There are private cars available, as well as the GO Puerto Rico Shuttle. 

“Gringo” prices

The term “gringo” refers to Caucasian people.

In general, the biggest scam on the island is that prices are one rate for locals, and another for tourists.

If you look white and speak English, there’s a high chance you’ll be overcharged on everything from food to rentals. 

To avoid this, research prices ahead of time and make arrangements wherever possible over email or online versus face to face. If you have someone that can translate your communications to Spanish, even better. 

I’ll also note that you might see “Gringo go home” graffiti all over the metro area. This is an anti-tourist sentiment stirred by resentment over tax incentives and influx of foreign residents. Not everyone is hostile and feels this way, but many do and it can be uncomfortable.  

Pickpocket scam 

If someone asks to take your picture, help you carry something, or give you directions, be weary of your pockets. Petty theft is common here so don’t get too close to strangers. 

It doesn’t hurt to have a cross body bag or take precautions to avoid losing your belongings. Do not carry too much cash and leave your jewelry and important documents in a safe. 

Tour operator scam

There are people who will act like they’re tour operators, but really they’re getting a commission for taking you somewhere else.

This is why you should reserve your tours and activities ahead of time, versus on the ground.

If you do reserve on the ground, make sure you’re going through the hotel or an official site like Airbnb Experiences where you have recourse should anything go wrong. 

What is it like to travel around the island? 

People are surprised when they come to the island at how welcoming and easy it is to visit here.  

Tour providers and hotels treat tourists like VIPs because they value your businesses. 

The road have massive potholes so you need to be vigilant while you’re driving. If you’re going outside the metro area, the highways are not well lit up at night. 

You can cross the entire island in 3 hours. While the coastline is all shores and beaches, the middle is filled with mountains so you could be going through changes in elevation and windy roads if you go that route.

For that reason, it’s usually quicker to drive around the perimeter of the island.


Is Puerto Rico safe to travel alone?

I am constantly traveling the island on my own as a young female and have never felt unsafe. I recommend making use of daylight hours as it’s simply easier to travel.

It’s daylight from 6am to 6pm approximately, every single day, due to our proximity to the equator. 

You might lose phone service if you go into the mountains so make sure you have directions or are connected to an offline GPS.  

You can travel anywhere on the island on your own without a tour or guide and will save a ton of money doing so. For instance, the Bacardi Factory is $15 to tour and comes with a free drink.

I’ve seen tour operators charge $50 or more for the same package.

Word of advice that if you are going to be drinking, I recommend Don Q rum over Bacardi to avoid a headache in the morning. 

You can take yourself to sites and attractions easily and many are cheap or free to enter. 

It’s safe to stop at food tents or trucks along the side of the road.

Depending on the route you’re driving you’ll see these makeshift kiosks by the side of the road.

People stop, purchase (cash only so make sure you have some on you) and then go on their way. It’s a quick interaction and there’s nothing to be nervous about. The food is delicious!

If you’re going to the beach, hide your valuables.

If you have a friend to watch your stuff then great but if not just make sure you bury anything you do have under a bunch of non-valuable stuff, like clothing, water bottles or other trash.  


Can you drink the tap water in Puerto Rico?

The water is safe to drink and the food is safe to eat. I order tap water all the time without issue. 

Again, since it’s part of the U.S., this is strictly regulated. 

You can order bottled water but I wouldn’t advise it, it’s terrible for the environment. Many places have done any with plastic straws. 

You’ll also have a hard time finding plastic bags. Walgreens does everything with brown bags, for instance. 

Is it safe to travel to Puerto Rico in 2022?

If you’re worried about being stuck without electricity in the middle of a shoot-out between two Pablo Escobar-style Puerto Ricans, I can tell you that unless you lead a singular and Bravo TV-worthy life, this will not be your reality.

More than likely, you’ll be laying on a warm strip of sand with a pina colada and fried pastry in hand, reapplying sunblock generously because the sun is deceptive and burns even when it’s cloudy or you’re hiking in the middle of the rainforest (you’ve been warned!).

Your most dangerous interaction will be with a spider or frog. They’re everywhere.

If the frog you encounter is singing something that sounds like “co-qui,” that’s our official animal!

Say hello and enjoy the sound, you won’t hear it anywhere else.

Aside from that, prepare yourself for the deadly combination that is a mofongo right before an afternoon sun shower — you will not be able to get up from whatever hammock you land on. The same applies if you’re looking to move and live here. 

Is Puerto Rico safe? Yes, yes, 1,000x yes. Please set aside whatever image the media has painted in your mind and come see for yourself. 


Till next time, safe travels!

Is Puerto Rico Safe For Travel In 2022? 12 Things You Should Know

Is it safe to travel to Puerto Rico as a tourist? The short answer is yes!

Puerto Rico has a lower crime rate than most metropolitan cities in the US. You may have seen scary news articles about violence between gangs or damaging hurricanes — yikes! But you don’t need to be afraid. 

I have been visiting the island for over 20 years and I have never personally felt unsafe.

In this article I will cover everything that you need to know about safety in Puerto Rico:

– Is Puerto Rico safe for tourists?

– Is Puerto Rico safe to live in?

– 12 things that you should know about safely traveling in Puerto Rico

– Is Puerto Rico safe for LGBTQIA+ travelers?

– Is Puerto Rico safe for disabled travelers?

– Other frequently asked questions


Is Puerto Rico safe for tourists? 

Yes! Puerto Rico is very safe, in fact, it’s one of the safest Caribbean islands to travel to.  

Like any other place you visit, as long as you keep an eye on yourself, your loved ones, and your belongings, you’ll have a great trip.

Tourists playing with their dog in Luquillo, Puerto Rico.

Pickpocketing is the biggest threat to tourists. While you might hear about the statistics for homicides, a vast majority of the violence in Puerto Rico is between gang members, and not between citizens and tourists. 

During your time on the island, as long as you stay away from drugs, guns, and don’t go looking for trouble, you’ll be okay.

Take an extra second to lock up your belongings before you leave your rental. Tuck any valuables you have into a non-visible location while you’re out, especially if you’re leaving your bag in the sand while you go for a swim.


Is Puerto Rico safe to live in?

Yes, it’s safe to live in Puerto Rico.

A long-term visit, much like visiting Florida, has little to no risk for you. When planning your trip, take time to consider the hurricane season. 

Hurricane season in Puerto Rico is from June to November, with September being the most intense month.

Puerto Rico experiences fewer hurricanes than the other Caribbean islands, although that doesn’t mean they’re less impactful.

Be sure to check the weather and the date when planning your visit and you’ll be okay!


Below are 12 things that you should know about safely traveling in Puerto Rico:

1. Riptides – The current can be very strong, and often there aren’t lifeguards. Be sure to swim parallel to the shore, not against the current, if you’re caught in a riptide.

Watch the signs and flags at the beach!

Riptide warning.

2. Drinking Water – Puerto Rico is held to the same standards as the mainland United States when it comes to potable water, so the water here is safe to drink.

Coco Frio (cold coconut water).

3. Mosquitos – Mosquitoes have caused Zika outbreaks on the island, so be sure to cover up in long, loose, cotton clothes when hiking, and use bug repellent when you can’t cover up.

4. Watch the Weather – It rains almost every day here, sometimes even when the forecast says it won’t!

Make sure you keep an eye on the sky, and maybe pack a poncho.

5. Learn Some Spanish – You will meet a lot of bilingual people in Puerto Rico, but Spanish is still the first language.

You shouldn’t always assume who you’re talking to speaks English. It goes a long way to know basic phrases.

Abierto means open in Spanish.

6. Jellyfish and Sea Urchins – When snorkeling and surfing especially, be wary of jellyfish and sea urchins on and around coral reefs.

Getting stung is usually just annoying, but if you feel nauseous, dizzy, or have trouble breathing, go to the doctor ASAP!

7. 911 Works – If you find yourself in an emergency situation, call 911 as you would in the United States. 

8. Heat Advisories – During the summer months in Puerto Rico, the temperatures can easily reach 100 degrees, sometimes reaching as high as 111 degrees. The humidity is 75% on average.

Exhaustion, dehydration, and sun poisoning are real risks, especially when spending days at the beach, or when hiking.

Check advisories, use sunscreen regularly, drink plenty of water (especially if you’re drinking alcohol).

9. Snakes – There are only ten types of snakes in Puerto Rico, most of which you will not encounter unless you’re turning things over in the forest.

Only one of them is venomous, the Puerto Rican Racer, but it’s only known to be in Toro Negro State Forest, and sometimes El Yunque National Forest.

It’s not lethal, so you have little to worry about.

10. Public Transportation – In metropolitan areas like San Juan you can take Ubers and taxis, and there is a commuter metro, the Tren Urbano.

It is very difficult to use public transportation in Puerto Rico outside of San Juan. One of the best cross-island buses, or guaguas, is the Linea Sultana. Call them to schedule low-cost transportation from San Juan to Rincón, Aguadilla, and Mayagüez.

Driving along the coastline, Dorado, Puerto Rico.

Aside from a few services, outside of San Juan, you will be hard-pressed to find a reliable, cost-efficient taxi service.

Uber is almost nonexistent. There is no train or bus system, taxis can be hard to contact.

You’re better off renting a car if possible. Always ask for an estimate before your taxi ride. If you’re staying at a rental, the easiest way to find a taxi is to ask the host.

11. Driving – Driving on the island can be challenging, but also enjoyable if you know what to expect.

Typically, drivers use their signals less often than in the mainland United States, and most of the signs are in Spanish. 

Narrow street parking in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.

In the country, the roads are often unpredictable, and narrow, and can be right along sheer drop-offs.

GPS systems don’t always work on the island, and many destinations may not be listed.

Make sure to learn a few Spanish phrases to ask for directions, or even call the destination ahead of time to be sure where you’re going. 

12. Alcohol – The drinking age in Puerto Rico is 18. In Puerto Rico, it’s illegal to drink alcohol in public.

If you are outside an area that has been zoned for drinking alcohol, you can’t have an open beverage.

Typically if you are found with an open alcoholic beverage in public you will be fined, so keep your alcohol at your rental, restaurant, or bar, and you’ll be okay.


Is Puerto Rico safe for female travelers? 

Puerto Rico is definitely safe for female travelers. 

I’ve met solo female travelers and backpackers, as well as women traveling in pairs and groups, and they’ve always shared good experiences on the island. 

Female traveler in Puerto Rico.

Occasionally there will be catcalls and comments, but as long as you stay aware and in well-lit areas when walking alone you’ll be okay.  

Puerto Ricans are very friendly, especially the men, but if you feel that someone is being too friendly for having just met them, trust your gut. Keep your trip plans and where you’re staying to yourself, and remember it’s always okay to lie or make a fuss to get away if you feel unsafe. 

Send your location to someone when you are going out, and let them know what time you’ll check in again. This is especially important for solo travelers and even more so for solo women.


Is Puerto Rico safe for LGBTQIA+ travelers?

As far as the Caribbean islands go, Puerto Rico is considered the most LGBTQIA+ friendly and has the same marriage laws as the mainland United States. 

Puerto Rico’s LGBTQ community.

There are thriving LGBTQIA+ scenes in metropolitan areas, although there is some tension and misunderstanding about sexuality and gender identity. 

If you’re worried about your presentation or a night out with your partner, you can stay near places like San Juan, Condado, and Santurce, but otherwise, you shouldn’t have a problem, even in rural areas.


Is Puerto Rico safe for disabled travelers?

Yes! It’s safe for disabled travelers in Puerto Rico. 

Accessibility for physically disabled people in Puerto Rico depends on the accommodations you need for your disability and on where you visit. 

In more metropolitan areas like San Juan, you’ll be able to find very accessible hotels, transportation, and experiences, but as you travel more off the beaten path, the accessibility is harder to come by. 

See accessibility tips for Old San Juan in the video below:

I encourage you to look for accessible activities around the island, like the trolleys in Ponce, adaptive kayaking, and the wheelchair-accessible beach in Luquillo; Mar Sin Barreras (Sea Without Barriers). 

For mentally disabled and neurodivergent travelers, Puerto Rico is definitely safe, but there are some sensory challenges that may take some planning ahead.  

I recommend thinking about Puerto Rican culture and the climate when it comes to your needs. 

The culture here is fun and loud! That comes with loud music and people, large crowds, bright lights, and often late hours. Earplugs or headphones, sunglasses, and noise machines help!

Beaches also may not have showers or foot washes available, and the sun, heat, and sand might bother you, so take time to think about what beach you’d like to visit, and whether or not you’d prefer your stay to be close by or to have private beach access or maybe even a pool instead. 


Is Puerto Rico safe for families? 

Yes, it’s safe for you and your family to visit the island, in fact, Puerto Rico is one of the top Caribbean destinations for families with children. 

Family traveling in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Hiking paths are well-trodden and clearly marked, and snorkeling and swimming at the beach are sure to be fun for the whole family. 

There are museums and resorts, and all sorts of family-friendly vacation condos, not to mention activity-packed tours.  

Something you may keep in mind is that the hours for businesses aren’t always correct online, so calling ahead to double-check is a good idea.


Is Puerto Rico safe to travel alone?

Yes! Like female travelers, I have also met a lot of backpackers that travel alone to Puerto Rico, as well as older adults taking solo business trips and vacations. 

Female traveler in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.

As long as you take the usual precautions when traveling alone, like keeping a close eye on your belongings and walking in well-lit areas, you’ll have a great time on your trip. 

You’ll also want to take extra caution when it comes to things that seem obvious, like remembering sunscreen, not drinking too much alcohol on a night out, or letting someone know when you’re going hiking. It’s easy to forget safety when you’re on your own!


What is the most dangerous city in Puerto Rico?

In my experience on the island, the most dangerous places I visited were Loíza and Piñones at night, especially near the Caserios (low-income housing complexes) in Loíza.  

During the day, Loíza and Piñones are amazing to visit, with Piñones being a hub for the most amazing street foods on the island, and Loíza being a center for African Puerto Rican music, food, and culture. 

Loíza Beach, Puerto Rico.

At night, however, Piñones and Loíza are hosts to a lot of gang violence and drug trafficking. It’s best to stay inside at night or stay in a gated community if you’re staying in the area. 

Other metropolitan areas are also dangerous at night, like Santurce, Condado, Miramar, and La Perla, but these areas pose the same risk as metropolitan areas in the mainland United States as well. 

Ultimately, if you exercise caution, stay away from drugs, and don’t look for trouble, it won’t find you. 


FAQ section

What is the safest area in Puerto Rico?

After almost a year of traveling, Luquillo, Puerto Rico, is the safest place I have visited.

Is Puerto Rico safer than Mexico?

When looking at crime rates, Puerto Rico is safer than Mexico statistically. It’s not likely that you’ll be in the right place at the wrong time, but it’s even less likely in Puerto Rico.

Is medical marijuana legal in Puerto Rico?

Yes, medical marijuana is legal in Puerto Rico, but recreational marijuana is still illegal and considered a felony. Puerto Rico has reciprocity, which means you can bring your out-of-state medical card and use it at Puerto Rican dispensaries, although there are limitations to what you can buy.

Do I need my passport to travel to Puerto Rico?

No, you do not. Puerto Rico is an unincorporated territory of the United States, which means that it is in fact a domestic destination.

Do I need a Covid-19 test to travel to Puerto Rico?

No, you’re not required to have a negative Covid-19 test result to travel to Puerto Rico, nor are you required to have proof of vaccination. Masks are no longer mandated, except in instances where there will be more than 1,000 people in the vicinity.
