DIRECTIONS TO THE HOSTEL ONCE IN VIEQUES
a. From Ferry - we are a fifteen minute ride from the ferry. The publicos are usually there to meet the ferry (unless you take the last ferry at 8pm), ask which one is headed to Esperanza, it will be approximately five dollars per person, direct them to Lazy Jacks in Esperanza on the Malecon, they will know how to find it. You can pre-arrange pickup with one of the taxies, about $15 for one or two passengers. If taking the last ferry, let us know, so we can help you pre-arrange transportation. Note that ferries can sometimes run late, if you can, let us know if this happens to you so we know when to expect you.
b. From Airport - there are taxis usually waiting for $15 approximate charge for one or two passengers, if you don't see any, call Steve or Alyssa for help.
c. Cars and scooter rental - if you have rented a car, they usually offer courtesy pickups from the ferry or airport, so pre-arrange your arrival time with them. Only Coqui car rental is within walking distance from the ferry, the rest of them are located mid-island or on the north side. There is a scooter rental you can walk to in Esperanza, once you make it to the hostel. Arrive early, as they close after five.
DIRECTIONS TO VIEQUES FROM PUERTO RICO
a. In order to get to Vieques from San Juan, you can fly from San Juan International Airport (SJU, most expensive), fly from Isla Grande Airport (SIG, slightly cheaper), or make your way to the Eastern tip of Puerto Rico an hour and a half away from San Juan metropolitan area and then either take a ferry from Fajardo (very cheap) or fly from Ceiba airport (cheaper than from metro area). Isla Grande regional airport is about 15 minutes and $15 away from Old San Juan or International Airport. Fajardo is $80 fixed rate by taxi if you take an official taxi from one of the metro area airports or $60 if you pre-arrange it with one of the Fajardo-based drivers in advance (email us for suggestions). There is also a cheaper but least convenient publico option (around $10) which is time consuming and not available on Sundays nor holidays, which involves making your way to Rio Piedras publico terminal and taking a publico to Fajardo ferry terminal. Publicos stop plenty in-between, so plan on it taking two-three hours to get to the ferry (versus an hour fifteen by taxi).
Vieques is a small island off the East Coast of Puerto Rico. The Lazy Hostel is located on the south side of the island in the village of Esperanza on The Malecon (the Boardwalk). Once you arrive, you dont need to worry daily about transportation, since you can walk to the beach, to Bio Bay tour operators, to numerous restaurants and bars, as well as beach stores and tourist activities such as snorkeling rentals bio bay trip pickups. The best beaches and restaurants are located in this area.
