How to get there

From USA to Puerto Rico

There are two major airports. One in San Juan (SJU) and one in Aguadilla (BQN). Rental car is a must. Driving from San Juan to Rincon will take 2.50 hours. Driving from Aguadilla to Rincon will take you 30 to 40 minutes. Taxis from Aguadilla at reasonable prices are available at the airport or you can call any of the contacts listed below. The following directions are the simplest way to get to Rincon. Once you get to the west of the island the GPS sometimes sugest you very strange & crazy ways to get to Rincon…so stick to my instructions and save time.
