Commuting in Vieques

Hi,

We are flying into Vieques on a Sunday and by the time we land the Avis airport location is closed. How is the taxi service in Vieques, what are their hours of operation and how easy is it to get one.

Thanks!

Where are you staying?

Most villa rental managers will pick you up, as will the W.

Unfortunately Publicos usually do NOT meet the later flights. I would call and make arrangement. Your guest house can help you find someone or there is a list of Publicos and taxis with phone number at

I still havent decided on the hotel, but definatenly not in W :), way too expensive. I will set up a time with one of the taxi operators

Another question, is there any way we can directly go to culebra from vieques

the time you arrive would help people give you advice. you should have included it.

im suprised you havent even got your lodging set. especially since you have your flight.

how many days do you plan on staying? do you have a car?

Why in Heavens name would you fly to SIG when Flamenco and VAL have frequent flights to and from Ceiba at less than half the cost and time. Maybe you are confused between the different airports?????

You must mean Ceiba because the flights to SIG are 30 minutes long and impossible on your schedule and Flights to Culebra and Vieques from Ceiba are around 10 minutes long.

1) VAL has a 65$ flight from Culebra to Vieques.

Culebra to SIG -10:30-11:00

SIG to Vieques - 11:15- 11:35

If you book it under the Culebra to Vieques itinerary it charges just 65$ for these 2 flights. I am checking with VAL if i have to change flights at SIG in which case this will be very risky.

2) I just got Scuba certified, we can fly after 18 hrs and my dive gets over at 2:00pm on 17th and I fly next day at 10:00am

3)In case there is a flight change at SIG, I will change the 2nd flight option to

Culebra to Cieba and Cieba to Vieques
