All activities of the XIV Puerto Rican Congress on Research in Education will be held on the College of Education of the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras Campus. The meeting place will be Amphitheater #1 of said faculty.

In this second map, the College of Education building and Amphitheater #1 correspond to number 37 (Facultad de Educación Eugenio María de Hostos).
The University of Puerto Rico does not have hotel accommodations on its grounds, so we suggest you check out the hotels in the tourist areas of Condado, Isla Verde, Miramar and Old San Juan. Transportation from these areas to the UPR should average about 20 minutes of commute time by traditional taxi. You can also contact UBER service for your transportation needs. As another option, you can combine buses and urban train (Tren Urbano), although this method will take longer (up to an hour of commute time) depending on the nearest bus station to your hotel area.
