 Vieques Hack:  Get the cash & the gas before the weekend, especially during the holdays! because the ATMs can run out of cash and the stations can run out of gas.

Travel Tips

No Passport Needed...

No Passport Needed   for US Citizens
Vieques, Puerto Rico is a US Commonwealth therefore, you do not need a passport if you are travelling from within the US and have a valid US driver's license. If you are travelling to any other Carribean destination you may need a passport and should check with your local US embassy.

Do I Need to Bring a Power Adapter?

US Standard Outlets
If you are travelling from the US and have standard electronics with you, there is no need for an adapter. 110 Volts, A.C., is the standard voltage in Vieques, as in the United States. Regular American Type plugs

Reserve a Car Right Away!

Reserve a Car   As Soon as Possible
Reserve a car well in advance. Vieques is a small island with limited rental cars available. There are many isolated and secluded beaches that you will want to visit that can only be reached by automobile, preferably a jeep or 4-wheel drive as many of the roads to the beachs are unpaved, filled with holes and bumpy!

Do it in the Dark!

Bio-Bay   Best Time to Visit
For the best viewing conditions book your tour for the DARKEST nights when there is VERY LITTLE, TO NO VISIBLE MOON in the sky. The darker the night sky the brighter the lights.

Where Can I Find a Great Tasting, Fresh, Budget Friendly Food?

Street Eats   Sol Food

Where Can I Get Fresh Fruit & Veggies?

Where Can I Find Fresh Fish?

Fish Market   Pescaderia Angelyz
For fresh fish visit Pescaderia Angelyz right next to the Ferry Port. Open Mon to Sat 10:00AM to 3:00 PM. Get there early, if it is closed that means all the fresh fish is sold out, or the weather conditions are not suitible for fishing that day. 787-349-8660, 787-918-0559

Best Beach Spot!

Playa La Chiva   Number 10
