Vieques Travel Reminders

  • Eat dinner early: And never in a hurry. Most places won’t sit you after 7:30 pm. Late-night food options can be a scavenger hunt depending on the day of the week/time of the year. Adds to the fun!
  • If you don’t rent a vehicle: Take Taxi business cards when you see them. There is no uber in Vieques and you should prebook Taxi’s in advance.
  • Prebook a Taxi: A must if traveling to Ceiba Airport, Ceiba Ferry, or Vieques Airport. The Vieques Ferry usually has Taxi’s 1st come 1st serve. Hustle! Or prebook, peace of mind is priceless.
  • Main Island (PR vs Vieques) Car Rentals: You cannot bring a main island (PR) car rental to Vieques. There is overnight parking at the Ceiba Ferry and Airport.
  • Should you rent a Vehicle? You don’t need to rent a vehicle in Vieques, but you should! Golf and UTV carts are a great adventurous and fun way for safe people to see the island. Jeeps/Broncos go faster, have AC, and you see more of the island if a planned short stay. Just not as adventurous to drive, yet much safer.
  • Sunsets: See a sunset in Esperanza.
  • Book a local excursion: Day Sail Trip, Yoga, Snorkeling, Horse Riding, Buggy Rental, Jet Ski’s, Fishing Charters, Bike Tours, Trail Tours, & More. There’s more than just beaches, yet we don’t blame you if you just want to sit at the beach!
  • Food: All food is local food! No chains… Choose from traditional Puerto Rican food, fresh Caribbean seafood, or hamburgers, pizza and chicken wings. Buen provecho!
  • Shop!:Many locally owned gift shops with locally made pieces. Take a locally made piece with you as a reminder of Vieques, a place worthy of remembering!
  • Motto: Leave the ordinary behind, embrace the island life!
