valentines day

we are visiting Viques on the 13-15th feb which is the valentines day. SO does that mean there will be a lot of tourist rush? we have booked our stay already. should we take the ferry to go to viques or book our flight tickets in advance? i really wanted to travel by sea to the island so wanted to know how bad is the sea route and how reliable is the ferry service?

I don't believe that Feb 14 would be any more crowded than most other days in Feb. Feb is peak season on Vieques so there will be "more" people than say....the off season. Regardless, it won't be crowded compared to other Caribbean destinations. I personally would fly to Vieques. There's been a lot of discussion regarding the ferry on this forum. Here's one recent thread:

We agree with Curt. The only thing we would add is that you may find that restaurants are busier because a lot of folks vacationing on the island on the 14th may want to go out for a romantic dinner that night. You might want to consider a reservation.

Valentines day is the day of the Vieques Baila

It is a fundraiser that has been going on for many years.

It benefits a different local organization each year. One year the high school bad was helped. This year i think it is the "incubadoria" or whatever it is called. but it is a great night for a good cause.

it is held in the multi use center(like a gym) across from cocnuts. many people donate food and prizes. there is admission.there are door prizes and raffles local live music and dancing. its a great opportunity to absorb some local culture and a great opportunity for people to meet.

think about it, it isnt as romantic and a quiet dinner alone, but it is alot of fun.

@frankipoo;

...have read about Vieques Baila before but we're never around when it's on. It sounds like a blast, and we wish the participants well in their fundraising.
