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.

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.
