“Puerto Rico Is Open and Safe to Travel To”

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - September 23, 2022

Puerto Rico tourism officials are urging visitors to maintain their planned trips to Puerto Rico following Hurricane Fiona. 

“We want to assure visitors, who already planned travel to San Juan, that Puerto Rico is open and safe to travel to,” Discover Puerto Rico CEO Brad Dean said in a statement. 

While authorities continue to assess the impacts of the storm, Puerto Rico’s primary air hub, Luis Munoz Marin International Airport, is fully operational.

On Sept. 22, the island’s Mercedita airport in Ponce also reopened, and all ports have reopened with cruises set to return Sept. 24. 

Most hotels and venues are already open and operating, with officials expecting what they described as a “staggered opening of popular tourist attractions.”

Old S Old San Juan, La Placita de Santurce, Piñones, Casa Bacardí, the Puerto Rico Convention Center, Frutos del Guacabo and DISTRITO T-Mobile are already open. 

The El Yunque rainforest, however, remains closed. 

Puerto Rico is set to host the Caribbean’s biggest travel conference, Caribbean Travel Marketplace, on Oct. 3, presented by the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association.
