Air Travel in Mayagüez
The small Aeropuerto Eugenio María de Hostos (MAZ), just north of Mayagüez on Highway 2, has flights between San Juan and Mayagüez on American Eagle and Cape Air. If you are not flying into San Juan, you can rent a car at the airport. Prices vary from $35 to $65 per day.
Aeropuerto Internacional Rafael Hernández (Hwy. 2, Km 148.7, Carretera 110 & 107 Borinquen/Ramey, Aguadilla, 00604. 787/891–2286 or 787/890–6075.)
Driving in Mayagüez can be complicated, especially in the high-trafficked center of town where one-way streets compose the city grid. Nevertheless, a rental car is your best option for getting around town. From Highway 2 you can reach downtown by taking Route 105 (Calle McKinley) or Route 106 (Calle Méndez Vigo). Either route will take you to the heart of the city.
