Arecibo is a town on the scenic northern coast of Puerto Rico; a part of the world which enjoys steady hot temperatures throughout the year. It's renowned for the world famous Arecibo Observatory. Arecibo is also home to some sublime natural wonders; there's the magnificent caves known as La Cueva del Indio, and some beautiful beaches like La Poza, where you'll find the iconic Arecibo Lighthouse. Puerto Rico isn't a particularly big island, making it easily navigable for those who take advantage of car hire in Arecibo.
Puerto Ricco's northern coast is an explorer's paradise, meaning that hiring a car in Arecibo is always popular. In Arecibo itself you'll love the charming colonial architecture, epitomised in the Church of Saint Phillip the Apostle, and the City Hall. Arecibo Lighthouse and La Poza Beach provide a wonderful seaside aspect to the town. If you're here for the observatory, you'll need to rent a car in Arecibo and take the PR-635 south. The observatory boasts the largest radio telescope in the world. Arecibo isn't short of natural wonders either: La Cueva del Indio is a short drive east via the PR-681, and Cueva Ventana (Window Cave) is due south on the PR-10.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
