It is named after the Puerto Rican composer Rafael HernÃ¡ndez MarÃn. It is Puerto Rico’s second largest international airport in terms of passenger movement. It is located in Porta del Sol tourist region, in Puerto Rico’s west coast. It is also home to Coast Guard Air Station Borinquen and to the Caribbean Branch of the U. S.
