Reliable and personalised Ponce Airport taxi

Mercedita International Airport is located in Puerto Rico’s second-largest city, Ponce, and serves the island’s southern region. It receives mostly domestic flights from the US but being a small airport it can get crowded during high season. Pre-booking your Ponce Airport taxi with Welcome Pickups is the best solution to avoid the crowds and the hassle of searching for public transport options.

It takes only a couple of minutes to book your Welcome transfer but it can truly make a difference on the day of your arrival at Ponce. You’ll not only save valuable time by skipping the line at the airport taxi rank but also ensure dependable, stress-free door-to-door transportation to your accommodation with a professional, hand-picked, and trained driver.

If it’s your first time visiting the island, being with a local as soon as you land, can give you great insights into the local culture. You can also ask your driver for recommendations on great places to eat or lesser-known spots to visit; they’ll be happy to share their knowledge of the city with you!

The best way to maintain the same level of service throughout your trip is to book a Ponce Airport taxi with Welcome Pickups for your return transfer to the airport as well; you can book a round trip from the start or ask your driver for assistance before they drop you off.

Do Ponce Airport taxis operate with fixed fares?

The rates are set by the local authorities and for a standard taxi from Ponce Airport to the city centre you can expect to pay about $15 (€13.80) for up to 4 passengers, although this is subject to change.

Where will I meet my Welcome driver?

What happens if my flight is delayed?

Even if your flight is delayed, your Welcome transfer will still be operated at the new flight arrival time. All you need to do is fill in your flight number when you book your transfer; your driver will use it to monitor your arrival and they’ll adjust the pickup time if there is a delay.
