Caribbean travel

See how your favorite destinations are doing.

Some of the Caribbean destinations we support have been heavily affected by recent natural disasters. We have taken these occurrences very seriously by working with our in-destination partners to ensure the safety and secure homecoming of our customers. While there are some Caribbean destinations that were directly impacted by hurricanes, there are others that were only moderately affected and some that were not impacted at all. One of the best ways to support any destination that has to rebuild after a crisis is to continue to vacation there once it is ready. See below for more details and updates on your favorite islands and be sure to visit soon.

Areas that were impacted

  • Puerto Rico

    • Airport conditions at Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) remain poor and authority to operate flights into/out of SJU is heavily restricted, following the impact of Hurricane Maria. As such, Southwest Airlines® has resumed scheduled flights to/from San Juan (SJU) with a reduced schedule.
    • 60% of the island is without power, making communication with the island challenging. We will update once more information is made available.
    • Puerto Rico will be back up for sale on Southwest Vacations® after 11/30/17.
    • All beaches are open.
    • Hotels in Rio Mar and Farjado have extended closures through the end of 2017.
