Activities - Things to do in Vieques
The best thing to do in Vieques is relax! There are too many wonderful, pristine, quiet, serene beaches here to mention. Wonderful restaurants to eat at and plenty of places to just hangout. Experience the history of Vieques - visit the Fort and the Lighthouse. We will provide our most recent favorites in our welcome packet as well as any other recommendations from our guests. I've provided some additional links below for you to explore.
Getting Here: Vieques is a short plane ride from San Juan. If you are interested in traveling to Vieques via Fajardo instead of San Juan, please let me know and I can offer assistance as I have made this trip several times myself.
Car Rentals: We offer a SUV for rent or I would be happy to help you secure a car rental which is highly recommended here. Some of the best beaches cannot be reached without one. Secure a vehicle as soon as possible as they are in high demand and short supply.
Bio Bay: Information about the Bioluminescent Bay www.biobay.com - I highly recommend experiencing this phenomenon. Check the moon calendar on their website to find the best night to go during your trip.
