COVID-19 & CANCELLATIONS

Because Vieques is isolated and does not have its own hospital, residents have worked diligently and have done an excellent job of minimizing the impact of Covid on Vieques, but cases do occur here like almost everywhere. The majority of Vieques adults received their two doses of the Corona vaccine in Jan and Feb, so residents are starting to feel a little more relaxed and the island is beginning to open back up for tourism.

Most beaches are open and sunbathing, snorkeling, and other water sports are permitted as usual. Bio Bay kayaking tours are taking place. Indoor dining at restaurants is restricted to a percentage of normal capacity, but most are doing carry-out or delivery and many have outdoor seating. Stores are well stocked and some deliver or do outside pickup. The bank and post office are open as usual.

If you book for for a set of dates and then are not sure it is safe or convenient for you to travel, you may cancel your booking with a FULL REFUND up to 5 days before your stay date.

HOW TO GET TO VIEQUES (VQS):

The majority of visitors to our villa take a morning flight into the San Juan International Airport (SJU) from their home city and then a 25-minute small airplane flight on Cape Air or Seaborne Airlines from SJU to VQS. Another option is to take a 20-minute cab ride from SJU to the other airport in San Juan, San Juan Isla Grande (SIG), and fly to VQS on Vieques Air Link or Air Flamenco. The flights from SIG cost less than from SJU.

Taking the ferry to Vieques is another option, but not one we recommend to first time visitors. The Ceiba ferry is located a 1-hour cab ride east from San Juan. Vieques residents are given priority to board the ferry ahead of visitors, and even residents cannot always get on the ferry when they want. We do not recommend the ferry to our guests.

A better alternative to flying from San Juan is to take a 1-hour/$100 cab ride from SJ to the small airport in Ceiba (CEI). Vieques Air Link (VAL) makes the 10-minute flight to Vieques from Ceiba for about $40 each way.

* Cape Air (from SJU only)
* Seaborne Air (SJU/SIG/CEI)
* Vieques Air Link (SJU/SIG/CEI)
* Air Flamenco (from SIG)

You will need to do a web search for the websites and phone numbers of these airlines, as Airbnb does not allow us to post this information.

RENTING A CAR

You will need to rent a car or jeep to get around on Vieques. Cars rented on the main island of PR cannot be brought over on the ferry. Here are the car rental agencies we recommend. You should reserve your car well in advance, as cars can rent up fully on Vieques, even during low season.

* Maritza's Car Rental
* Island Jeep/Coqui Car Rental
* Avis Car Rental
* Vieques Car Rental
* Vieques UTV Rental
* Chepito's Car Rental (older cars, no website
* JW Cars Vieques (newer company with inexpensive SUVs)

You will need to do a web search for the websites and phone numbers of these agencies, as Airbnb does not allow us to post this information.

CELL PHONES

Cell phone from the continental US work in PR and on Vieques without roaming charges. AT&T and T-Mobile seem to have the strongest cell signal here, but Verizon and Sprint cellphones also work OK too. None of the carriers provide good signal in the furthest corners of the island.

Where you’ll be

Vieques, Puerto Rico

Our villa is located in one of my favorite areas of Vieques. Far enough from town to be private and quiet, but close enough for trips to the store or restaurants, we are one of only a handful of locations that combines panoramic ocean views, a short walk to the beach, and a pool.

My wife Olga and I live in Ann Arbor, MI. Olga is from Madrid and teaches at the Univ of Michigan and I am a mostly retired commercial Realtor. We started visiting friends in Vieques a few years ago and fell in love with the island. 4 years ago we had the chance to buy this wonderful, modern 3-unit villa with a panoramic view of the ocean. Please contact us with any questions. We will respond quickly.
