Tomorrow on Saturday, October 4th 2014; I will depart from Newark Liberty International Airport via United Airlines 1740 non stop service to San Juan, Puerto Rico. Then I will immediately connect with Cape Air to Vieques. The picturesque and very quiet island of Vieques lies just 8 miles from the Eastern Coast of Puerto Rico. In addition to the quick flight schedule of 20 minutes there is also a local ferry service from Fajardo which takes approximately 1 hour. Vieques is part of the commonwealth of Puerto Rico and has shared Spanish influence for more than 400 years. The Island is full of unspoiled beaches, some lovely guess houses and villas for rent in addition to some upcoming restaurants.
While in Vieques I will stay at the very lovely W Resort & Spa with its own private beaches and coves, fully equipped resort with Spa, noted restaurants, gardens and swimming pool.
Although I have made numerous trips to Puerto Rico I have never visited Vieques before. I am greatly looking forward to this weekend escape to discover the natural beauty and pristine beaches of lovely Vieques.
