We have our first trip to Vieques planned for next week. I have learned from this site and our hotel that the wildlife refuge is closed,including its beaches. I am so disappointed as I was excited to explore all those neat spots. If this is likely our only trip to the island is it worth putting it off and going to somewhere else. We are coming into San Juan and can take a puddle jumper anywhere reasonably close. Looking for advice from those experienced with the island. Is a traveler missing a lot visiting Vieques if you can't get into the Wildlife refuge?
