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, take a leisurely stroll along Malecon, enjoy the sea views from Puerto Ferro Lighthouse, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Caracas Beach.

To plan Isla de Vieques vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Getting from Culebra to Isla de Vieques by combination of flight and car takes about 2.5 hours. Other options: ride a ferry. Expect a daytime high around 88°F in July, and nighttime lows around 79°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 24th (Mon) to allow time for travel back home.
