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 Sun Bay Beach and Caracas Beach. We've included these beaches for you: La Chiva and Media Luna Beach. There's lots more to do: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, stroll through Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, get great views at Puerto Ferro Lighthouse, and stop by Isla Vida.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Isla de Vieques vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Albuquerque, USA to Isla de Vieques is an approximately 10- hour combination of taxi and flight. You can also do a combination of taxi, flight, shuttle, and ferry. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Albuquerque to Isla de Vieques due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Albuquerque in April, plan for a bit warmer days and much warmer nights in Isla de Vieques: temperatures range from 85°F by day to 75°F at night. You'll have a few hours on the 14th (Sun) to wrap things up before traveling to Culebra.
