Find the cheapest flight to Puerto Rico

The main airport in Puerto Rico is in the capital, San Juan. The San Juan Airport, Luis Munoz Marin International Airport (airport code SJU) is in the city of Carolina, three miles from the city of San Juan. In addition to being the main international airport for Puerto Rico, Luis Munoz Marin International Airport is also the Caribbean hub for American Airlines and American Eagle. There are regular flights from San Juan to several cities on the US mainland as well as other smaller cities in Puerto Rico, including Culebra, Aguadilla, Ponce and Vieques.

The website for the Luis Munoz Marin International Airport is in Spanish and the translation into English apparerently does not work just yet. In order to get any information from the website, therefore, you either need to speak Spanish, know someone who speaks Spanish, or make educated guesses. By doing the latter, for instance, you can navigate your way to the basic information about the airport. If you put your cursor on the menu item that says “Aeropuerto Internacionales” you get a second menu on the right. From that second menu, click on the item that says “Luis Muñoz Marín (Carolina)” and you will go to the San Juan airport’s page. Everything about that airport is on that one page, you just have to scroll down to find it.

About halfway down that main page you will also find a list of “Instalaciones y Servicios,” which is the list of facilities and services at the airport. They include “restaurants, cafeterias, stores, bank, beauty parlors, barber’s shop, massages and ‘Duty Free Shops’” among other things. Further still down that same page, you will also find the box marked “Aerolíneas” where you can see the list of airlines serving San Juan’s airport, along with their phone numbers.

More Information on Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is part of the Caribbean and yet part of the United States at the same time – it might be one of the few places left where US residents can visit without having a passport. Despite being technically part of the USA, Puerto Rico is self-governing and definitely has its own personality. It is a popular destination for US residents who are looking for something a little more exotic than they can get in the 48 contiguous states, but not so exotic that they cannot drink the water. Puerto Rico offers great beaches, all kinds of water sports, plenty of land-based activities and an amazing rain forest. What is not to love?
