The charms of Puerto Rico's capital are apparent even from the air. Azure waters front historic buildings, which eventually give way to tropical foliage. Flights to San Juan end up at Luis Munoz Marin International (SJU), named for the writer and statesman who is considered the "Father of Modern Puerto Rico." Since the island is a United States territory, it offers American convenience wrapped in sunny 80-degree weather and colonial Spanish culture.
You have several options for reaching your accommodations once you arrive from your San Juan flight. Taxi turisticos line up outside the terminals to meet arriving San Juan flights, and they use set fares to San Juan hotels by Luis Munoz Marin Int'l or to travel within the city. Larger hotels, especially those outside town, may send shuttles to you; you can also rent a car from kiosks in the airport. Expect to take free transportation to pick up your vehicle, since it will be parked away from the terminals, and remember that limos fitting up to six passengers are also available; their drivers will meet you outside baggage claim. Those with lots of time and little money can take the 40 or 45 bus to Isla Verde and the 5 bus to Old San Juan. After you've settled into your room, take a tour of the historic area, or relax on the beaches of casual Ocean Park, happening Condado, or family-friendly Escambron.
Get mobile exclusive deals on the Travelocity app, and pick one of our San Juan vacation packages, cheap flights to San Juan, or hotel bargains. You'll have more to spend on playing the casinos, dining on Caribbean cuisine, and dancing in hopping nightclubs. Your city stay will be packed with fun events, but if you have the time, check out the rain forests, caves, and mountains just a short trip from wherever you're staying.
Airfares offered on Fridays tend to be the cheapest, according to flight demand on Travelocity.ca in 2019. Purchasing your airfares on a Monday or Tuesday can also provide better value, however our advice if you’re looking to save money is to avoid booking on a Saturday. Our data shows, the start of the weekend has the highest ticket values on average, so keep this in mind if you’re browsing flight deals on a weekend.
Frequent travellers may already know this, but earlier in the week is often the cheapest time to fly. Flights departing on a Tuesday are the cheapest of the week. Since weekend flights tend to be more popular, this causes the prices to rise which is why on average, airfares booked on Travelocity.ca in 2019 were most expensive for Saturday departures.
