My partner and I have done the drive, it really isn't that bad. Of course I learned to drive in Boston and now live in NYC so my perception of driving is a bit skewed.
That said, be prepared for a lot of tailgating at high speeds. It might make some people uncomfortable. I'd say it's about an hours drive, and we had no trouble with finding our way.
The only stop we made was after we got to Fajardo. We hiked el Junque which I highly recommend. It's got some spectacular views, the trails are fairly easy and well marked. There are waterfalls, lookout towers and streams for swimming.
