Reserve a Car Right Away!

Jeep Parked on Beach Cliff Edge Overlooking Ocean

Reserve a car well in advance. Vieques is a small island with limited rental cars available. There are many isolated and secluded beaches that you will want to visit that can only be reached by automobile, preferably a jeep or 4-wheel drive as many of the roads to the beachs are unpaved, filled with holes and bumpy!

Do it in the Dark!

The Best Time to Visit the Bioluminescent Bay

For the best viewing conditions book your tour for the DARKEST nights when there is VERY LITTLE, TO NO VISIBLE MOON in the sky. The darker the night sky the brighter the lights.
