Tour Pick up

Does anyone know if the tour operators in Vieques pick up people for the tours or if we would have to get our own transportation to a pre-determined pick up spot?

I ask because on our other travels to different islands the tours that we have done the company has always provided transportation. This could be due to us staying at a resort though. This time we have a private residence we are staying at not a resort.

From my experience you need to get yourself to the meeting spots for the bio-bay tour, horseback riding tour etc. Many visitors to the island already have a rental car, if not you are advised to arrange transportation by a publico.

One exception is when renting a scooter from Fun Bros they are willing to bring the scooter to you so that you don't have to leave a car for days in their lot in Esperanza.

We'll have a car for a couple of days on the island but not in planning on having one each day. Was thinking we would just get one for a couple of days when we wanted to get provisions, hit the other beaches, shopping, eating out, etc.....

I think Blackbeard Sports will pick you up, depending on their schedule and availability.

It would be a mistake to compare Vieques to the other islands that you have visited. First there are very few people actually calling themselves Tour Operators on Vieques. I would guess ( as mentioned above) that would be the handful of Biobay tours and the one or two, if they are open who will take people horsebackriding.

There is little public transportation and if you do not have a car you may find yourself confined to those quarters you are renting.If you are staying in Isabel or Esperanza you might manage but Vieques is not like other islands.

Thank you for the information above everyone. We'll have a car/jeep to use when we are there in order to get to the tours we want to enjoy.
