Public Transit is among the most interesting—and adventurous—ways of traveling in Puerto Rico is by público. Públicos are independently owned and operated vans that service hard to reach urban areas. They also travel between island towns and, if you have the time and inclination, they can be an inexpensive and fascinating way to learn about the island. You may find yourself in with a family on their way to see a grandmother on the other side of the island or a half dozen ballplayers on their way to a game. All in all, públicos offer visitors a unique opportunity to see the real Puerto Rico and meet its people.
