      Bio bay tour - Boat or kayak?

      Isla de Vieques Jan 5, 2015 at 8:01 AM

      Trying to decide which tour to take. I hope to take a lot of photos, and figure that handling paddles and camera would be a hassle (not to mention the angst of tipping with a good camera). We can get our recreational paddling in during the day at another venue. On the other hand, a boat with 22 passengers (per Island Adventures Tours) sounds a bit crowded.

      Any advice would be welcome. Abe's appears to be the premier kayak tour outfit? By a stroke of luck, we'll be there at almost the darkest phase of the moon.

      Mosquito Bay - worth visiting in June?

      Vieques Apr 5, 2014 at 6:47 PM

      We are planning to visit PR for a week, and want to visit either Vieques or Culebra for a couple of days. I heard on other sites that perhaps the bay is not glowing and no one knows why.

      That said, if the main attraction in Vieques may not be visible in June, is Vieques still worth visiting or should we go to quieter Culebra instead?

      Thanks in advance for any opinions.

    • Safe and Sound?

      Isla de Vieques Feb 3, 2014 at 7:01 PM

      My girlfriend and I booked passage to Vieques after visiting Culebra and wanting to go see for ourselves the bio bay and wild life preserve. We are now finding out there is a growing crime element on the island and becoming worried about how safe our stay will be. We are staying for at least a week and we are curious, how can we best avoid getting into trouble and simply enjoy each others company while experiencing as much solidarity as we possible?

    • Help/advice about moving to Vieques

      Vieques Mar 4, 2012 at 6:21 PM

      I am planning to move to Vieques within the next 2 weeks or so. I am looking for advice &/or guidance on getting established. I am moving there alone and live a simple life. I don't mind living like a local in fact it is what I want. I will be needing everything from work to housing. I am 45 years old, newly divorced after 25 years of marriage and am basically starting over. I have been a professional musician/audio engineer for well over 20 years. I can entertain with guitar and voice for 3-4 hours a night, with no problem. I can also stage manage/book bands/run sound and take care of all aspects of live concert performances.
      My other abilities are as follows: PADI certified Rescue Diver (have been diving all my life) licensed private pilot, electronics/computer tech., CPR/first aid current, skilled mechanic & carpenter and much more. I am great with people and in great physical shape so a kayak/outdoor guide would also be a possibility. I am also great with kids, have raised 4 of my own into adulthood. Since my ex basically took everything, I am coming without much cushion, so immediate work is a necessity.
      I am learning Spanish and can have basic conversations, but not much more yet. I am a fast learner, so that will change.
      I appreciate any help offered and hope someone who has been in my position can offer some guidance to get established on Vieques. I plan on making it my home for a very long time.
      Thank You in advance,

      I have read that May is one of the rainiest months on Vieques but does that mean there is no sunshine or that the sun shines between showers. We usually travel to the caribbean in May but obviously we want to have decent weather when we visit Vieques. Thanks!

    • traveling with best to get to vieques

      Vieques Apr 16, 2007 at 2:31 PM

      All 9 of us will be arriving in San Juan after a long day of traveling. Are there any recommendations (relatively inexpensive) for traveling from San Juan to Vieques? Some airlines can't take all of us, and I've heard so many different stories about the fares and travel time to get from San Juan to Fajardo that I'm not sure what to expect on that route.

      Thanks in advance for your help!

      Camping on Vieques?

      Vieques Nov 6, 2005 at 11:45 AM

      In 1987 we spent a week at a fairly primitive state park campground on Vieques. It was about a half a mile south of Esperanza. I think it was on Sun Bay.
      Does anyone know if it is still there?
      Thanks in advance.

    • San Juan to Vieques

      Vieques Dec 20, 2004 at 12:23 PM husband will be staying in San Juan mid-January. We want to visit the Bio Bay in Vieques, but don't want to stay the night in Vieques. From what I can tell, the last ferry/flight out of Vieques back to Fajardo or San Juan is around 5pm, which means we wouldn't get to see the bay at night time. Does anyone have a suggestion for getting from Vieques back to San Juan later at night? After dark? Thanks!! We desparately want to see the bio bay!!

      Is it possible? I would really love to see the biobay @ night and return to the mainland about 1030 pm. I am staying in San Juan for only 3 days, 3 nights and have already booked my hotel there. I have heard about the biobay before but did not realize it was in Puerto Rico. Has been something I have always wanted to experience. Any info you can give about returning to the mainland late evening so I can experience the biobay in its full glory would be greatly appreciated! thanks, michelle
