San Juan's busy cruise port on Jan. 8.
Puerto Rico is open for tourism. That’s the message from Discover Puerto Rico CEO Brad Dean, who reported that San Juan welcomed close to 15,000 visitors from three cruise ships on Jan. 9.
Flights are operating normally to and from airports in San Juan, Ponce and Aguadilla. Taxi and rideshare options are available. Ferry services to and from Vieques and Culebra are running.
The Ponce cruise port, the Puerto Rico Convention Center and major attractions such as El Morro, El Yunque, San Cristobal Fort and all areas around San Juan are open for business.
Two tourism sites, Punta Ventana in Guayanilla and the Ruins of the Lighthouse in Guanica reported damage, along with several hotels and many homes and businesses in southwestern Puerto Rico.
