There’s a fare war to Puerto Rico being waged by Delta, JetBlue and United — and that’s good news for those looking for a get away. Round-trip nonstop fares generally hover around $500 per person but we’re seeing prices much lower today, as noted by Scott’s Cheap Flights.
Note the fare class when booking since many of these low-priced fares are in basic economy, meaning you may not be able to select seat assignments and you may need to pay extra for a checked bag.

Cost: $158+ round-trip
