If I wanted to stay on Vieques past sunset to enjoy the bioluminicent bay - how would I get back to San Juan at 8p or 9p at night? what are the options?
We are hoping to spend January-March in Vieques. How do we find a three month rental?
We are planning to visit PR for a week, and want to visit either Vieques or Culebra for a couple of days. I heard on other sites that perhaps the bay is not glowing and no one knows why.
That said, if the main attraction in Vieques may not be visible in June, is Vieques still worth visiting or should we go to quieter Culebra instead?
Thanks in advance for any opinions.
I am planning to move to Vieques within the next 2 weeks or so. I am looking for advice &/or guidance on getting established. I am moving there alone and live a simple life. I don't mind living like a local in fact it is what I want. I will be needing everything from work to housing. I am 45 years old, newly divorced after 25 years of marriage and am basically starting over. I have been a professional musician/audio engineer for well over 20 years. I can entertain with guitar and voice for 3-4 hours a night, with no problem. I can also stage manage/book bands/run sound and take care of all aspects of live concert performances.
My other abilities are as follows: PADI certified Rescue Diver (have been diving all my life) licensed private pilot, electronics/computer tech., CPR/first aid current, skilled mechanic & carpenter and much more. I am great with people and in great physical shape so a kayak/outdoor guide would also be a possibility. I am also great with kids, have raised 4 of my own into adulthood. Since my ex basically took everything, I am coming without much cushion, so immediate work is a necessity.
I am learning Spanish and can have basic conversations, but not much more yet. I am a fast learner, so that will change.
I appreciate any help offered and hope someone who has been in my position can offer some guidance to get established on Vieques. I plan on making it my home for a very long time.
Thank You in advance,
Hi Im wondering how humid it gets in Vieques in May and June
Can you fall asleep with a few fans on? does the temperatures cool down at night?
Do you think jumping in the pool before going to bed will be enough to cool me down?
the owner of the place we are renting says it gets hot but they get trade winds because its on a hill..
Also, What are some ways to stay cool without air conditioning
Does anyone know if I can buy organic or natural meat and chicken in Vieques or for that matter the Main Island?
Does anyone really visit this site the most recent questions seems to bo 2 years old?
This is a two part question. Are there any sailboats that do sunset sails on Vieques? Also, can anyone recommend a massage therapist or spa on the island?
I have read that May is one of the rainiest months on Vieques but does that mean there is no sunshine or that the sun shines between showers. We usually travel to the caribbean in May but obviously we want to have decent weather when we visit Vieques. Thanks!
All 9 of us will be arriving in San Juan after a long day of traveling. Are there any recommendations (relatively inexpensive) for traveling from San Juan to Vieques? Some airlines can't take all of us, and I've heard so many different stories about the fares and travel time to get from San Juan to Fajardo that I'm not sure what to expect on that route.
Thanks in advance for your help!

In 1987 we spent a week at a fairly primitive state park campground on Vieques. It was about a half a mile south of Esperanza. I think it was on Sun Bay.
Does anyone know if it is still there?
Thanks in advance.
Vieques Air Link does not seem to be contactable via phone or online reservation, can anyone tell me if its ok to get into San Juan and buy the ticket then or are reservations ahead better?
Hi...my husband will be staying in San Juan mid-January. We want to visit the Bio Bay in Vieques, but don't want to stay the night in Vieques. From what I can tell, the last ferry/flight out of Vieques back to Fajardo or San Juan is around 5pm, which means we wouldn't get to see the bay at night time. Does anyone have a suggestion for getting from Vieques back to San Juan later at night? After dark? Thanks!! We desparately want to see the bio bay!!
I don't seem to be able to rent a car while I am in Vieques. Should I not go?
Is it possible? I would really love to see the biobay @ night and return to the mainland about 1030 pm. I am staying in San Juan for only 3 days, 3 nights and have already booked my hotel there. I have heard about the biobay before but did not realize it was in Puerto Rico. Has been something I have always wanted to experience. Any info you can give about returning to the mainland late evening so I can experience the biobay in its full glory would be greatly appreciated! thanks, michelle
