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, adventure, wildlife, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: enjoy the sand and surf at Sun Bay Beach, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, take in the waterfront at Mosquito Pier, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Vieques National Wildlife Refuge.

For reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Isla de Vieques online road trip planner .

Los Angeles, USA to Isla de Vieques is an approximately 14-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight, shuttle, and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 4 hours traveling from Los Angeles to Isla de Vieques. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Los Angeles in November, with highs in Isla de Vieques at 86°F and lows at 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Culebra.
