Taxis turísticos, which are painted white and have the garita (sentry box) logo, charge set rates based on zones; they run from the airport and the cruise-ship piers to Isla Verde, Condado, Ocean Park, and Old San Juan, with rates ranging from $10 to $20. Make sure to agree on a price before you get inside. City tours start at $36 per hour.
Although you can hail cabs on the street, virtually every San Juan hotel has taxis waiting outside to transport guests; if none are available, have one called. Radioed taxis might charge an extra $1 for the pickup.
