CULEBRA AND VIEQUES ISLANDS: The ferry ride to Culebra is about 1 1/2 hours and to Vieques about an hour. On calm days this can be a pleasant excursion, on rough days the trip to Culebra, especially, is very rough.

Tickets to Vieques are less in demand and easier to get than to Culebra. You may need to wait in line for hours for a Culebra ticket. Ask in the office for ferry schedules.

If you go to Vieques the morning ferry leaves at 9:30 am and you get to Vieques around 10:45. Hop in a Publico (shared van) or take a taxi to 'CARACAS' beach for a few hours, then perhaps go to the little tourist town of Esperanza for a late lunch on the boardwalk, return to the ferry dock by 5:15 pm .

The morning ferry to Culebra leaves at 9 am. You can easily get transportation to the fabulous Flamenco Beach. You can also fly round trip to Culebra, it is a 15 minute flight with dramatic views.
