The event had been scheduled to take place from 7-9 October 2022, but due to ongoing challenges faced by the Puerto Rican Swimming Federation and limited time to prepare, it was agreed to cancel the competition.

FINA Executive Director Brent Nowicki said: “We are disappointed to have to cancel the event, but our first priority must always be our athletes and ensuring we are providing them with the best possible environment to compete. After consultation with the Organising Committee, we decided that it would not be possible to host the event to the standards required, and so cancelling was in the athletes’ best interests."

The final leg of the FINA Marathon World Series 2022 will take place in Eilat, Israel from 11-12 November.
