Fly from the nearby Isla Grande Airport in San Juan to Vieques ( about half the price) : • Vieques Air Link

... or Fly from the Ceiba airport. OW fare $35. Trip to Vieques takes 8, very scenic, minutes. Be met by a private Taxi at the San Juan Airport and be driven to the Fajardo Ferry terminal or the Ceiba airport. $75. for 3 persons before 6 PM. Ten dollars additional for pickups after 6PM. $15. per person for 4 or more people. ** Please note the fares charged by 'non pre-reserved taxis from the taxi stand at the airport would be considerably more. • Mary is a lovely lady and very reliable. She doesn't speak much English but her husband does (he drives the taxi) Tel. 787-863-8224 and ask for him. Her cell is 787-649-9155 if you need it, but be patient with her English. They charge $65. for the ride from San Juan to Fajardo. $10. extra after 6 PM. ($15. per person for more than 3 people).

* The above drivers are 'tentatively' on this page because I am concerned about people making reservations and not bothering to cancel, if they can't make it. Please be respectful of the fact that they both need to drive for more than an hour from Fajardo to pick you up, please make sure you cancel with adequate notification.

4. Rent a car at the San Juan Airport and leave it in Fajardo. Several Car Rentals allow this and they will drive you to the ferry terminal/airport or pick you up there. If you keep the car for 3 days or more some car rentals allow free drop off in Fajardo (or vice-versa). See Elenas' Adventure Travel Guide to Puerto Rico for more information about the El Yunque rain forest. There are a few new car rental agencies that will also do this. Avis will do this as well.

** If you plan to go from the airport to the ferry terminal in Fajardo on the same day, take a taxi! (pre arranged - see above).

Night in Fajardo. If your flight arrives in San Juan too late to get the 8 PM ferry to Vieques or 7 pm Culebra (weekdays and 6 PM weekends and now the 8 PM ferry on weekdays to Vieques) then it might suit you to spend the night in nearby Luquilo, on the beach. There is a lot to see in this area. The El Yunque rainforest, Luquillo Beach, sailing to Icacos Key. The nicest place to stay in a reasonable new hotel on the beach is the Luquillo Sunrise Beach Inn. Please note that there is a hotel right in the International airport in San Juan which could be a very convenient place to stay the night, recently refurbished. see above for more info.

. . The Cargo ferries run several times a day DO NOT* plan on taking a rental car to Vieques! You need a prior reservation to take a car on the ferry. At best, this is iffy. You can be bumped off for little reason, then your holiday plans may be ruined or you may miss you flight back home. This happens a lot.*

* It is infinitely more advisable to rent a jeep/SUV once you are on Vieques. You need a jeep for the beautiful beaches, not a car. Do NOT rent a regular car in Vieques, as they will ask you not to go to the beaches in it!!! ( rough dirt roads). Cargo ferry information 1-800-981-2005 or 787-860-2005 . Vieques local ferry dock office T. 787-741-4761. *** You most probably will NOT be able to reach anyone by telephone, they usually do not answer their phones. You should complain directly to the Governor of Puerto Rico. I can not help you with this.
