Guide for Staying in Miramar & Convention Center, San Juan, Puerto Rico
Miramar/ Isla Grande (hereinafter referred to as Miramar) are adjacent urban business areas in the district of Santurce, San Juan, that began getting attention with the construction of the Puerto Rico Convention Center. The Convention Center is a $415 million dollar state-of-the-art facility with 600,000 square feet of meeting space. There are great plans for redevelopment of the bay side, and a beautiful, modern, new hotel by Starwood was opened. If you’re attending an event at the Puerto Rico Convention Center, or are leaving on cruise from the Pan American piert nearby, you may find it very convenient to stay in Miramar.
You can still enjoy all the great attractions and beaches in San Juan by taking a 15 minute taxi ride. If you go to Old San Juan, you can pretty much walk to enjoy all the major attractions or take the free trolleys. A car rental may be more cost-effective if you plan on staying in Miramar, so we highly recommend it.
Even though most of the tourist attractions are in Old San Juan, if you find a hotel or apartment rental you like in Miramar that fits your budget, we think the drive is not a major inconvenience. Renting a car in Puerto Rico has great advantages, because you’ll feel more free to explore beyond the city. There are many wonderful beach towns and world-class attractions around the island to enjoy. Just be sure to avoid rush hour in the morning and later afternoon if you’re renting a car and driving in San Juan.
