Isla de Vieques

Isla de Vieques ©
For sixty years until 2003, most of the Isla de Vieques was closed off to the public, with the US Navy using the island's beaches and surrounding waters for drills and testing of new military machinery, such as bombs.
Isla de Vieques is known for nature, beaches, and wildlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: contemplate the waterfront views at Sun Bay Beach, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, kick back and relax at La Chiva, and stroll through Vieques National Wildlife Refuge.

Chicago, USA to Isla de Vieques is an approximately 9-hour flight. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Chicago to Isla de Vieques due to the time zone difference.

Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Mon) so you can travel to Culebra.
