RINCON TRAVEL TIPS
-Options to fly in Rafael Hernandez Airport (BQN) in Aguadilla or the Luis Munoz Marin Airport (SJU) in San Juan.
-If you fly in/out of BQN on the first/final days of the Retreat (5/22 + 5/26) a shuttle can be arranged to pick you up at no extra cost - keep in mind that many flights arrive/leave BQN very early in the morning (3am,4am).
-If you fly/out into SJU, you can look into booking a jumper flight to/from the Eugenio Maria de Hostos (MAZ) in Mayaguez via CapeAir. If you fly into/out of MAZ on the first/final days of the Retreat (5/22 + 5/26) a shuttle can be arranged to pick you up at no extra cost.
-If you fly into/out of SJU (and don’t continue through MAZ) we can arrange to have a taxi drive you (a 2.5-3hr drive each way, San Juan to Rincon), which you are required to pay out of pocket.
-If you fly into/out of BQN or MAZ any day other than first/final days of Retreat we can also arrange a taxi to drive you at your expense.
-JetBlue, Spirit, and United fly into BQN (with many direct flights from the east coast US) and often have great deals!
-SkyScanner is another great website to use to find cheap flights!
-If you choose to come before, or stay longer than, the Retreat dates, we will be glad to help you book your stay! Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have!
