I had convinced myself it was worth the $100+ more for our party of four to fly from Ceiba rather than ferry over, but I just realized in my haste on the Vieques Airlink site that fares were quoted per leg, so now at $260 more, round trip, for 10 minute flights... I'm not so sure.
I understand that the ferry ride can be rockier on the way over, plus we'll be in a hurry for our one day on the island, so still seeing if it makes any logistic sense to consider flying there and ferrying back? We will have a rental car from San Juan, which will of course be inconveniently parked if we take two different options.
Unless any of you has any ideas? How far is the ferry from Ceiba airport? Is there reliable and affordable transportation between the two?
Taking the ferry both ways would be of course more budget-friendly, but if it is complete and utter madness and we might not even get on the ferry, my husband will lose his itty bitty mind.
This will be a Friday in January, in just a couple weeks. How has the ferry been running, and is there a way to make this reasonably hassle free?
