Luis Munoz Marin International Airport, mainland United States, transportation hub, International airlines, container shipping
Puerto Rico is the transportation hub of the Caribbean. The islandís international airport, Luis Munoz Marin International Airport in San Juan, is one of the largest and busiest in the Caribbean. Local airline service links San Juan with the other cities on the island as well as with various points in the Caribbean. International airlines connect San Juan with the Americas and Europe. The San Juan port facility is among the top ports in the world for container shipping.
Although transportation facilities have been expanded to meet the requirements of the expanding Puerto Rican economy, transportation facilities outside of San Juan are generally much poorer than on the mainland United States. Trucks move most internal business traffic, and the islandís limited railroad system hauls sugarcane.
