Vieques

Vieques Travel Guide

Located in Vieques across from the Martineau Bay Resort, Martineau Car Rental has a variety of cars for rent at reasonable prices. Available models include PT Cruisers, Jeep Wranglers and Grand Cherokees, and Dodge Nitros and Durangos.

Come late afternoon, in-the-know travelers wander right from the nearby ferry landing to the laid-back, open-air bungalow—to drink margaritas and watch the sunset while casting for silvery tarpon off the deck with locals.

Head to García Beach for a quiet escape with a palm tree–dotted island just a short swim away.

Maritza’s Car Rental, located on Vieques Island in Puerto Rico, opened in 1995. The agency offers Jeep, Dodge, and Suzuki vehicles for flat daily rates. Models available include the Jeep Wrangler and Liberty, as well as the Yamaha Zuma, a scooter.

Mosquito Bay, close to Esperanza, is one of the world's brightest bioluminescent bays, and when you dive into the warm water after dark, your body will glow white.

Navío is known as the island’s finest, and that means it is also the most packed; the path to the sand is lined with haphazardly parked Jeeps and scooters.

The motorcycle aesthetic inspired the black-and-red interiors of this trendy locale. A 1964 Triumph Thunderbird hangs above the bottles behind the bar.

For moped rentals.

The oldest bar on Vieques has a pool table and an ancient jukebox that spins salsa hits; the backdrop is the newly refurbished town square, ideal for a late-night stroll.

Every visitor hears about the must-see bioluminescent bay soon after arriving, but many don’t know that they can skip the touristy boat trips in favor of the more intimate option of kayaking through the eerily glowing waters.
