How to get to | Puerto Rico

This post is how to get to Puerto Rico. There is also a post on how to get to USA.

This is part of a series of blog entries on how to get to countries and places. Here is a link to the index. I plan to eventually cover every country and some other places. If you have a request for a particular country or place please use the email me link at top right, or leave a comment.

There are two very easy ways to get to Puerto Rico, by cruise ship or by flying. Airlines flying to Puerto Rico include:
  • Star Alliance - Air Canada, Continental, United, US Airways
  • Oneworld - American, Iberia
  • Sky Team - Delta
  • Other selected - Virgin Atlantic, various North American and European charters

TIP American Airlines has a significant hub at San Juan. Fares from continental USA to various Caribbean islands mostly travel via San Juan and often allow a stopover here.

UPDATED November 2009 - Continental switch from Sky Team to Star Alliance. No change to advice.
