Before you call airlines looking for flights from Washington, DC, you should check with Orbitz.com. The two major airports in DC are Washington Dulles International Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Alaska Airlines, US Airways, and Frontier Airlines handle domestic flights from Ronald Reagan, while Virgin America, ExpressJet Airlines, and Colgan Air operate out of Washington Dulles. Ronald Reagan is only three miles from the downtown area, and Washington Dulles is 26 miles from downtown.
The five parking lots at Ronald Reagan offer daily and hourly parking rates, and the airport charges $20 per day for parking in the long-term lots. The economy lot only charges $12 per day, but this lot is open and uncovered. Washington Dulles has two long-term parking lots that charge $17 per day and one economy lot that charges $10 per day. For $30, you can use valet parking.
The Metrorail and Metrobus make at least one stop at each airport every day. The stops are clearly marked around the city, and you can find maps that help you find the correct line. Taxis are not as low cost as the public transportation options because the drivers charge a pickup fee, baggage fee, fee per mile, and a fee for any time that the driver must wait.
Both airports offer a range of dining options. Washington Dulles is home to Dulles to Go, Five Guys, Subway, and Wendy's, while Ronald Reagan has Dunkin' Donuts, Euro Cafe, and Jerry's Subs & Pizza. Once you have something to eat, you can browse through the sales at some of the shops surrounding the restaurants. If you want to enjoy your vacation, use Orbitz.com to look for flights from Washington DC.
Ponce, located in the southern part of Puerto Rico, is the second-largest city on the island. The Mercedita Airport, located about four miles from the city center, serves the city, as well as the surrounding area. JetBlue airways is the primary airline operating from the airport, with flights to Ponce, Guanica, connecting through various other carriers in Orlando and New York. Reservations can be made using Orbitz.com.
Airport shuttles are available to some of the hotels in Ponce, free of charge for certain guests, from the Mercedita Airport. The trip takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Taxis are available as well, offering metered service to destinations not offering the shuttle service.
The weather in Ponce is beautiful throughout the year, with average highs between 87 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit no matter the month. Low temperatures average between 66 and 73 degrees. Dress should be light, airy clothing.
Ponce has become a favored tourist attraction in southern Puerto Rico due to its historical significance as well as its beautiful scenery. There are multiple museums operating throughout the downtown area, all run by the municipal government. The Serralles Castle and the Cruceta El Vigia observation tower offers tourist destinations for those interested in the history of the area, while the Paseo Tablado La Guancha along the shore features a lovely marina filled with kiosks selling local crafts and street performers. For relaxation, visitors can enjoy the beautiful sand-covered beaches that are alone worth the cost of flights to Ponce, Guanica. For those on a budget, flights can be reserved through Orbitz.com.
