Is Car Rental Needed/Weekend Days in Vieques

We will be flying to Vieques probably on a Sunday for one day only, and I have a couple of questions. If we want to go to Blue Beach and Esperanza, should we get a rental car, or will taxi take us to these locations? I don't mind paying for a rental car if needed, but if taxi service would be reliable, would it be better option to visit these areas. The flight arrives about 7:30am and leaves the island around 6pm. Also, are the weekends busy on Vieques, and are the shops open on Sundays?

How do I find out what days the beaches are closed?

Im just curious, Im wondering why would they call you Ellis if you are in Fajardo and they are in Vieques? what could they expect?

it would certainly be easier to get in a cab and go to the beach then get in a cab and go to the ferry. but once you are at RED Beach, youre stuck there. if you are at Sunbay and decide to walk to esperanza. it is easy to catch a cab in Esperanza, btw. but imo, sunbay is not as spectacular as red beach

having a car gives you options. but it is time consuming to go and rent the car and to drop it off.

The reason Ellis is posting is to advertise. All of her postings are just that, offering her service which is against TA rules.

I have to agree with the above posters. I decided to give a try to publicos the last time. IMO rent for at least one day. Many will do the one day trip getting early and departing late afternnon with a rental. Publicos are ok, but if you plan to get to the other beaches you must arrange that with the driver. Publicos are often on demmand which means more time busy with their customers. Weekends and hollydays are their good business days.

I agree with Frankie, Sun Bay is beautiful, but Red Beach is better. Depending on your cell phone service the signal can be weak in some beach locations.
