Within a five and a half hour flight time for 232 million people, one unique benefit Puerto Rico enjoys over other Caribbean nations is that U.S. citizens can travel there without a passport. This makes the Caribbean oasis a favorable and highly accessible travel destination with hundreds of non-stop flights in and out of Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) every day—one of many reasons Puerto Rico is among the most traveled destinations in the Caribbean.
