Keep things going the next day: see the interesting displays at Parque de Bombas, steep yourself in history at Hacienda Buena Vista, and then take an in-depth tour of Museo de Arte de Ponce.

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.
Get outdoors at Media Luna Beach and Navio Beach. Gallery Galleon and Fortin Conde de Mirasol Museum will appeal to museum buffs. The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Secret Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Blue Beach, contemplate the waterfront views at Sun Bay, and enjoy the sea views from Puerto Ferro Lighthouse.

To see reviews, photos, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Isla de Vieques custom trip planner.

Traveling by combination of car, flight, and taxi from Ponce to Isla de Vieques takes 2 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of taxi and flight. In July, plan for daily highs up to 88°F, and evening lows to 78°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Mon) to allow time to travel to San Juan.
