Reserve a Car as Early 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

Plan your trip to the bioluminescent bay during dark nights. For the best viewing conditions plan your trip to Vieques when there is VERY LITTLE, TO NO VISIBLE MOON in the sky.
