Filippa’s life as a model and event planner in New York City always keeps her
on the run. So she wants to escape her hectic life in the city by buying a
vacation home on the unspoiled island of Vieques, Puerto Rico. She visited
Vieques for a modelling shoot and fell in love with its beautiful beaches, wild
horses running around and warm people. She has a budget of $400,000. With dreams
of having spectacular views and beautiful entertaining spaces, she realizes she
may have to consider buying a home that needs a bit of work. But, she’s nervous
about overseeing a remodel from her home in New York. To help her find her
island getaway, Filippa is turning to local real estate agent, Gustavo
THIS IS ONE OF OUR RENTAL HOUSES! YOU CAN STAY IN AN HGTV HOUSE! COOL!
So, you’ve found the perfect home for your island vacation, the dates you need are available and you’re ready to make your reservation?? Awesome!!
To make a reservation, we ask for either Visa or MasterCard credit card information to place your home on hold for the dates you’ve chosen. No charges will be placed on the card at this time!
However you choose to get from the main island of Puerto Rico to Vieques, it is a trip filled with breathtaking beauty!! The view from a tiny plane looking over our tiny island is simply amazing. The ferry gives you the ocean in all its glory and, if you can time it right, you may get to witness an unbelievably picturesque sunset from the water.
The most convenient way to get from Puerto Rico to Vieques is a 20 minute “hop” by small plane from San Juan International Airport (SJU). See below for links to island airlines.
You can also take a 10 minute taxi from San Juan International to Isla Grande Airport (SIG) for approximately $20. The flight from Isla Grande Airport to Vieques is approximately $85 per person one way.
Another option is to take an approximately hour and a half taxi ride to the NEW ferry dock IN CEIBA for around $50-80, depending on how many people and how many bags, and then a 1/2 hour (or so) trip on the passenger ferry to Vieques for $2 per person. WE ARE TOLD THE SHORTER ROUTE ENDING AT MOSQUITO PIER IN VQS IS TO OPEN SOON…not holding my breath…
Bringing a rental car on the cargo ferry is not allowed….besides being basically impossible 🙂
OR hop a taxi to Ceiba’s Jose Aponte de la Torre Airport (RTR) in Ceiba and take Vieques Air Link or Flemenco Air(??), approximately $45 one way.
All prices are approximate as of the date of posting and are subject to change without notice.
THIS IS WHO WE RECOMMEND:
For groups of up to 9, charter a private flight on our preferred carrier…
