Condado is located between Luis Munoz Marin International Airport and Old San Juan, and is about a 15 minute taxi ride away from each if traffic isn't bad. It can easily be reached from Old San Juan by the B-21 bus ($0.75) or taxi ($12).
Condado is very walkable, and travel by bus or taxi is easy (see above).
Condado's main street is Avenida Ashford, which tends to have foot traffic at all hours of day and night. If you are primarily in PR to hang out on the beach, then a car may not be necessary if you are staying in Condado because you will spend too much time sitting in traffic and looking for parking.
There is plenty to see in Condado but most people come for the beach and the nightlife. A wonderful place to stay, the beachfront is full of great hotels.
You'll never be bored in Condado with a beautiful beach, casinos that go all night, restaurants, boutique shops, bistros, cafes and more.
