Vieques is open enough to enjoy it. Getting to the island via the ferry is not a guarantee, as local government policy has been restricting access to residents only. Though, while I was there this past week, I did hear of some tourists being able to get on the boat. I opted for the 10 minute flight from Ceiba ($4) and then getting back took the 28 minute flight to San Juan's municipal airport ($85), both on Vieques Air Link. Keep in mind these are little 6 passenger airplanes, so your baggage may have limitations. As I was solo on this 5 day trip, and Vieques is so kicked back, I didn't pack much. Depending on where you stay, most rentals offer access to a washing machine and dryer. So, the next question is where to stay. That depends on your preferences and budget. As this was a real estate scouting trip for me, I chose to use the services of the Bravos Boyz. They offer not only real estate services, they also offer some very nice rentals, with a big range in prices. They also offer rental cars and airport pick up services. But, there are a ton of other options as well. The typical online sites will give you an abundance of offerings, and at present, the island is hungry for business. So, don't be timid and trying to negotiate rates. As for the restaurants, many of them are open... enough for a diversity of selection. More are opening on a regular basis, so check the individual websites to see their status. I repeated a couple visits to Bananas in Esperanza for lunch and dinner. And, Saint Voodoo in Isabela for a burger with music and drinks. Both were managing the virus protocols quite nicely and reasonable. I thought Lazy Jacks was a little over the top with the roped off entrance and plastic partitions between the seats... but they are doing what they can to stay open. All of the beaches are open! The beaches are by far the major attraction for this island. The water quality was perfect and even on Sunday (family day) the beaches were not overly crowded. Now is a great time to visit. So, the one thing all new visitors must pay attention to while driving on the island are the free walking horses and dogs. While they are visible during the day, at night not so much. PLEASE, be careful and attentive while driving on the island. Bottom line, the island is mostly open, is beautiful, and the people are friendly and welcoming. If you want to go to Vieques, then by all means do it. I'll be back, perhaps forever...

My husband and I spent 14 days exploring the Caribbean for our honeymoon and we both agreed that Vieques was our favorite of the 6 islands we visited! It has the local charm, great food and blue waters you expect of the Caribbean without the crowds, cruise ships and commercialism. We will be back one day!

Vieques is Beautiful, the nature, the people and everything about it, it’s magical. You have to go, stay at the Brick and swim around. Make sure you get a Jeep.

We would love to welcome you once we are ready and back in business. Let me save you time. The mayor is not welcome tourist yet in order to protect the residents. You have to prove that you are resident of Vieques Island in order to get in the island. Many restaurants are only open 25% of their business operations, many of them have almost regular schedule but lockdown still 5am -7pm, most of them are doing deliveries. The hospital is a temporary clinic. Fish and Wildlife Refuge is closed until further notice (check their website).Most of the tourism operations are not allowed to operate, yet. Some taxis are taking reservations of 24 hours prior the arrival of the essential services such as pick up or drop off (airport or ferry) if you are a resident. Hope this help. Besides I have the bless to live here, people are very nice and honest. We will be very happy to see you again once this is all over.

We visited Vieques during Summer 2017. There was a beach almost everywhere and each beach had a different characteristic. Whether it was black sand or crystal rocks, each beach had beautiful green blue waters. Vieques is known to have more horses than cars, which we definitely witnessed. No worries, the horses were very calm and collected. I would love to revisit when traveling is back to normal.
