Town centre roads and major highways are generally well-maintained in Puerto Rico but their condition in rural and mountainous areas is variable and you might encounter animals on the road. The islanders do have a reputation for fairly aggressive and fast driving although speeding is now heavily penalised. Signposts are written mainly in Spanish. Having a rental car does, however, reward you with some beautiful scenery and coastlines.
Puerto Rican police can issue fines for driving offences. These have to be paid at a bank or police station before you leave the island.
The Castillo San Cristobal in San Juan was the largest fortress the Spanish ever built in the New World and was designed to protect the town from invasion. Today it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built at the same time in the early 18th-century the Murallas del Viejo or Old Walls of San Juan provided an extra layer of protection from seaborne attack. To the North West of Puerto Rico is the town of Moca where the pretty Palacete Los Moreau can be found. This French colonial-style house was built in 1893 on a coffee and sugar plantation. The Convento de Porta Coeli translates as the Convent of the Stairway to Heaven. Originally built in 1609 by the Dominican Order the convent can be found at San German.
