Puerto Rico Transportation
Puerto Rico's largest airport is Luis Munoz Marin International Airport (SJU), located three miles southeast of San Juan. The airport offers direct flights to many US cities and connections to most other airports in Puerto Rico, including Antonio Riviera Rodriguez Airport on Vieques.
Immigration & Customs
When you fly into San Juan, it’s like flying in the US, Only Proof of citizenship is required. Acceptable documents include a U.S. passport, birth certificate or government issued photo ID. Because US citizens don’t need a passport or visa to enter Puerto Rico, they are not required to pass through immigration or customs. Your bag will be searched by the US Department of Agriculture to check for prohibited items.
