You will be pushing it. Figure your flight will be late. It will take you a half hour to get your bags Etc. You might just make it. But have an alternate plan. With bad luck the ferry will leave early rather than late.
It does take about an hour to get from the airport in San Juan to the ferry in Fajardo. My husband's mother lives in Vieques, so we visit as often as possible. We also only take carry on luggage, so we don't have to wait at baggage claim - saves a lot of time.
In September of 2006 and again in January of this year, we used a wonderful taxi service that I found on the internet. The contact person is Ilca Rivera. She and her husband, Jose, own the service. She speaks perfect English, is very helpful, reliable, and I highly recommend her. It really helps to have your taxi lined up before you go. Her email address is: Jose Padin" <firstname.lastname@example.org>, and her cell phone # is 1-787-644-3091. I usually corresond via email prior to arriving (i.e. rates, flight #'s and arrival time), and then talk to her on her cell from the airport. We are going again in July, and we absolutely love the island - very relaxing.
Good Luck! Hope you have a great time!
