Getting to Mi Refugio

« go back

Route 413 - Road to HappinessTo get to Mi Refugio en Rincón, you can fly either into Aguadilla’s Rafael Hernández Airport (BQN), which is only about 20–30 minutes away, or into San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marín International Aiport (SJU), which is about 2½ hours away. I recommend flying into Aguadilla because it’s more convenient. Continental Airlines, JetBlue, and Spirit Airlines provide service to Aguadilla. (JetBlue has direct flights from New York — in less than 4 hours you’ll be in paradise.)

To get to Rincón and get around easily once you arrive, you’ll want to rent a car at the airport — it’s best to make car reservations ahead of time, especially during high season (winter).
