is a small island and is part of the archipelago of Puerto Rico, a US territory, accessible by air and sea.
Many major airlines fly directly into San Juan’s Luis Munoz Marin Intl. Airport (SJU). JetBlue is the one airline that will include your second flight in a single itinerary, connecting from your home airport to San Juan to Vieques, but it is often more expensive than buying two separate flights, so price both options.
GETTING TO VIEQUES FROM SAN JUAN
To reach Vieques from Puerto Rico, you can either fly or take a ferry. We strongly recommend booking flights to/from Vieques from one of San Juan’s two airports. Flying is the most reliable option and surprisingly cost effective versus the ferry once you take transportation costs from San Juan to/from the ferry terminal in Ceiba into account. You might also consider taking a flight to Vieques and a ferry on the way home.
San Juan international is your connection to the “main island” of Puerto Rico. For flying to Vieques, you can fly from SJU on Cape Air or Seaborne, or with Vieques Air Link from San Juan Isla Grande or Ceiba airports. Flights range from $40-150 one way depending on the airport.
The ferry leaves from Ceiba. Allow an hour and a half to two hours to drive from San Juan to Ceiba. The ferry is inexpensive but can also be unreliable and can have major delays, so be prepared for an adventure! Try to get on a fast passenger ferry. View the schedule at porferry.com

We highly recommend looking into a rental car as soon as you can, as Vieques is short on rentals. A Jeep or 4×4 will get you to our best beaches.

You can’t bring a rental car from the main island, it’s not allowed. Taxis are also available – the main company is at 787-741-TAXI.
