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.
Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery and Puerto Ferro Lighthouse are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get outdoors at Sun Bay and Vieques National Wildlife Refuge. There's lots more to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, hunt for treasures at Fish Market, view the masterpieces at Gallery Galleon, and look for gifts at Isla Vida.

Plan my day in Isla de Vieques using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Boston, USA to Isla de Vieques is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or do a combination of flight, shuttle, and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Boston to Isla de Vieques. In February, Isla de Vieques is much hotter than Boston - with highs of 83°F and lows of 73°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Fri) so you can travel to Ponce.
