October 12th Update

Statement from Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Puerto Rico Golf & Beach Resort (as of October 12 @ 2:30pm)

Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Puerto Rico Golf & Beach Resort is working swiftly towards reopening our doors. In the meantime, we are hosting nearly 500 first responders who are helping the island recover. We remain incredibly grateful to our dedicated hotel staff, local authorities and members of the community who have gone above and beyond to help to restore the island following the storm. We look forward to welcoming back guests and will provide continued updates on resort progress and exact reopening date on our website:

September 27th Update

Airport Updates:

Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU)

The resumption of normal flight operations is being delayed for safety reasons due to radar functionality limitations impacting the number of arrivals and departures. The airport is operational again but on a limited schedule from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM EDT until further notice. There are approximately twelve commercial flights scheduled daily. International flights have not yet been authorized.

Airport authorities are working closely with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to resolve this situation while ensuring safe operations. These operational limitations unfortunately have also resulted in overcrowding conditions and passenger delays. The Puerto Rico National Guard has been on-site distributing food and water to the remaining travelers at SJU to make them as comfortable as possible until they are able to reach their final destinations.

We strongly encourage travelers without confirmed flights to avoid going to the airport. Reservations are not being managed at SJU and passengers must reconfirm these reservations directly with their airline before going to the airport for check-in. Also note that airplane seat capacity is extremely limited as airlines continue to work on additional recovery flights.

The Puerto Rico Tourism Company expects increases in airport capacity as soon as technical restrictions are eased.

The following airports are operational and offering limited service:

  • Rafael Hernández Airport (Aguadilla)
