Sales at the Beef Island (EIS) Airport?

We are flying down to the Beef Island Airport (EIS) and connecting in San Juan. We are staying at Peter Island and wanted to pick up a few bottles of liquor for the week before we get out there. Is there a small liquor shop at the Beef Island (EIS) Airport or do we need to get our spirits in San Juan? Just don't want to miss our chance, as the Peter Island ferry will pick us up at EIS and then we'll be "capitve" for the week. Thanks!

Hi there,

There is a gift shop in the airport and I believe they do have liquor.

Yes, there is - quite miserable actually when it comes to the selection and prices. I personally shop in San Juan - I enjoy multiple options and it's cheaper - simple as that.

You will be most likely picked up from Trellis Bay which is 2 minutes away from the airport - there is a small grocery store there with liquor as well.

PI will pick you up in a van at EIS that will take you to the ferry dock for your boat ride to PI. The small stores at the airport sometimes close for lunch breaks, or whatever (:>) When we went to PI 2 yrs ago, my wife's eye contact solution didn't make it through security. The PI van driver stopped along the way to the ferry dock and we purchased the eye solution, as well as gin & tonic. I'm sure the driver will be happy to stop, a tip helps. It was really nice to be able to enjoy a cocktail in our room before dinner.

We loved every minute at PI, one of the best places we have ever been: …smugmug.com/gallery/…128417099_P683k
