A seaside playground in the Caribbean, Rincon was a small agricultural and fishing town until it hosted the 1968 World Surfing Championship.
On the 22nd (Fri), visit a coastal fixture at El Faro Lighthouse.

New York City, USA to Rincon is an approximately 5.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also do a combination of bus, flight, and car. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from New York City to Rincon due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much hotter weather when traveling from New York City in February: high temperatures in Rincon hover around 85°F and lows are around 76°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Sat) so you can travel to Isla de Vieques.

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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Media Luna Beach and Puerto Ferro Lighthouse. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, contemplate the waterfront views at Sun Bay, stroll through La Chiva, and shop like a local with Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery.

For more things to do, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Isla de Vieques online trip itinerary builder .

Getting from Rincon to Isla de Vieques by combination of car and flight takes about 3 hours. Other options: do a combination of car and ferry; or do a combination of car, shuttle, and ferry. In February, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 73°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Wed) to allow time to ride a ferry to Fajardo.

There's still lots to do: paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and get some thrills out on the water with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure.
