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, adventure, wildlife, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: contemplate the waterfront views at Sun Bay Beach, take in the waterfront at Mosquito Pier, get great views at Puerto Ferro Lighthouse, and discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To find photos, traveler tips, more things to do, and tourist information, read Isla de Vieques online day trip planner .

Do a combination of flight and car from Culebra to Isla de Vieques in 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can ride a ferry. December in Isla de Vieques sees daily highs of 84°F and lows of 75°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
