Our family went from Orlando, FL to Aguadilla, Puerto Rico in October and our total for flights, car, Airbnb and entertainment was $1,011. I will put the links in here with instructions on how to recreate our trip.
Aguadilla is located on the NW side of the island on the Atlantic ocean side. We loved this part of the island, the water was incredibly blue, beaches were clean and we felt safe everywhere we went. We spent a lot of time exploring this side of the island and found plenty of things to do.
Once we arrived to the island we made a Walmart run for groceries, beach bag essentials and fishing poles for fishing at Guajataca Lake.
We booked our flights through Spirit airlines, they are a low cost, no frills airline. If you get their credit card you can go from Florida to Puerto Rico for 2,500 miles and $20.50 fee per tickets otherwise, I budget $150 per person for the flight. We were able to use our miles and for only 18,250 miles and $202 was our total for 5 round trip flights.
2. Car Rental
We rented our car through Budget car rental and everything was pre-booked online. The roads are very narrow in PR so a compact car is easy to maneuver and park in the city. We booked our car for $150 for a week and declined the extra insurance, our insurance policy covered us in PR.
We stayed at Villa Verde Flamboyan in Quebradillas. The house was prefect for our family, close to Walgreens, grocery stores and gas stations. The house is located near the city but has a “country” vibe. Chickens, cows, goats and sheep all within an eyes view from the house. We did need to rent a car because the roads are not very pedestrian friendly. Roberto the owner of the house was awesome, he spent his weekends off showing our family around the island. The total for 1 weeks stay was $427.
