Sun Bay is the only camping that I know of. We took the ferry to Vieques, set up camp, took the Bio Bay tour, walked down to the little store and cooked up some food when we got back. I felt safe and the few other campers were nice and we had a great night. The wild horses sleep by the campgrounds and were running on the beach when we woke up! It was beautiful.

There are no hostiles in Vieques. There are some cheap nice hotels though. Try seagate.com from about 40 a night.

The island is small but I think it would be hard to get to some of the most beautiful beaches without a jeep. Im sure you can rent a bike for a few days. Everyone is willing to work with you.

About the ferry I know the last one leaves at 8pm so you will be fine. Be warned that it costs about 60 dollars to get to Farjardo in a cab(try to find someone to split it with you)

The Farjardo inn is about 100 a night but is walking distance to the ferry.

Dont miss the Bio Bay!!!

Any more questions please ask. Have fun =)
