Our meeting place is the parking of a community basketball court on Road 992, Luquillo.  Road 992 is a loop road, that is, it has two accesses from the main Road 3.

Leave the urban center of Luquillo by taking Road 3 in the West direction (towards Luquillo Beach, the food shacks, El Yunque rainforest, or San Juan); stay on Rd 3 until you reach the 31.7 km marker of the road (locate these in the middle of the road between the East/West bound lanes).
