Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport is located in the municipality of Carolina about 15 minutes from Old San Juan and the neighboring tourist destinations of Condado and Isla Verde. Serving over 10 million passengers per year from 60 domestic and international destinations, the airport is the biggest and busiest in the Caribbean. Opened on May 2, 1955 it was renamed 30 years later in honor of Puerto Rico’s first democratically elected governor, Luis Muñoz Marín.
The Main terminal, used by most carriers, includes concourses A, B, and C. Concourses D and E are housed in the American Airlines Terminal which handles over 50% of domestic flights. Passengers depart the island through the upper level which includes a varied selection of clothing, souvenir, and duty-free shops. Several amenities – including an Admiral’s Lounge, bank, hotel, and barbershop – as well as major restaurant chains are located throughout. Arriving visitors exit through the lower level where taxis and shuttles are plentiful and can take you to your destination in no time.
