Ultimate Guide to Vieques, PR

When the ferry first drops you off at Vieques, you won't be in the town where Esperanza Inn is located. Instead, you'll be docked in the town of Vieques, where most of the tourist shops lie. Because you'll need to travel through this small town to reach your hotel room, we highly recommend familiarizing yourself with this area.

We will be going to many of the highlights of Vieques, as well as some stops you'll probably want to make before you get here. We hope you enjoy this rundown of the town!

Additionally, transportation on our island can be difficult if you are underprepared (as we talk about in our transportation article), so be aware of these rental services to save yourself a headache.
