San Juan, Puerto Rico Price Guide

Last Updated: Jan 2022

Puerto Rico can be a mixed bag when it comes to pricing. Some places, dining options, and hotels are cheap, while others are very expensive. Though this is good in that you have lots of price point options, San Juan can be surprisingly expensive, even in the off season. This is because the weather here is ideal pretty much all year long, attracting lots of northers looking to escape a cold, snowy winter.
