We've added a new section to our website, now you can view a list of all the airports and airlines you can use to reach Puerto Rico!
We have customers that visit Puerto Rico from all over the world, so we often get asked what the best ways to get there are and what the closest airports to the house are.
Getting here is actually pretty easy and there's plenty of options. Below are some of the airports and airlines you can take to reach Puerto Rico along with the 3 letter airport IATA code in parenthesis.
Aguadila is the closest airport to Rincon, and our beautiful beach home located on the north-western part of the island. Roughly 35 minutes away by car, BQN is a small, very easy to navigate airport. 3 major carriers fly into BQN;
Spirit Airlines - Direct non-stop from Fort Lauderdale, Florida (FLL) 3-4 times a week.
A little further away is Mercedita Airport, Ponce, PR (PSE)
Ponce is about an hour and a half away on the southern part of the island pretty much right in the halfway point between coasts almost directly south of Arecibo. There's only one major carrier currently flying to PSE however, Delta and Continental(Now United) both flew there recently, so new services may come soon as they remodel the airport.
The furthest airport from us and by far one of the largest airports in the Caribbean is Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport, Carolina, PR (SJU). Roughly between 2 and 3 hours away depending on traffic and which route you take. Over 4 million passengers board a plane at the airport per year. Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport is Puerto Rico's main international gateway and its main connection to the United States. Domestic flights fly between Carolina and other local destinations, including Culebra, Mayagüez and Vieques. The airport is accessed from the San Juan district of Hato Rey, the island's financial district, via the Teodoro Moscoso Bridge. Old San Juan is accessed via the Baldorioty de Castro Expressway (PR-26). Teodoro Moscoso Bridge connecting the city of San Juan to the Luis Munoz Marin International Airport in Carolina.
The airport serves as the Caribbean hub for Cape Air, Air Sunshine, and Seaborne Airlines, as well as a focus city for JetBlue Airways. JetBlue is the largest carrier in San Juan, with 51 daily flights on an average day.
The list of current airlines and destinations is much too long to post in just one post, but we have a section on our
website that tells you every airline with service to SJU and what terminal they are located in. Thank you for reading, and as always if theres ever anything we can help you with please let us
