Below is some of the information to fly in to Aguadilla, PR:

American Airlines have a lot of flights that fly into San Juan International Airport, Puerto Rico (SJU).  They have at least three flights a day from-and-to the States.  Once you pick up your bags, go out to the second curb and wait for the Rental car/buses to take you to the rental agency for pick up of rental.  Suggest Budget or Hertz, because they have been my pick for the last 30 years.  Pick up and return vehicle to the same place, a credit card is required and I suggest you pay the extra $20.00 dollars for insurance per day!  Take my word for it.  They give a map that shows how to get to Aguadilla, Puerto Rico.  The Budget and Hertz for International numbers are below.  It takes about two hours to get to Aguadilla, PR.  There are plenty of signs to Number (2) Highway which takes you to Aguadilla you will see the country side and beautiful scenery.
