We felt safe on this quite street. The auto rental was a bonus to get us all (6) out and about. It was our first visit to Veiques and this was a nice place to get acquainted.

Additional Rate and Availability Information
During the high season on Vieques, demand often outweighs the supply of available rental cars on the island. If rental cars are not booked in advance during the busy season, it is very difficult to find a vehicle for rent. Pura Vida has a SUV exclusively available for the use of our guests. If you shall choose to stay at Pura Vida, a SUV will be available for your use if you choose to rent it.
We have a 2007 Dodge Durango for the exclusive use of our guests. Not many rental vehicles on Vieques can hold more than 5 passengers. Our SUV has three rows of seats holding 8 passengers. If you are a larger group staying at Pura Vida, an 8 passenger SUV negates the need to rent two vehicles, you can fit everyone in one vehicle, thus saving you money on both rental fees, gas etc. During the winter months which are High Season on Vieques, rental cars are often nonexistent, as there is more demand than cars available. Our SUV is for the exclusive use of our guests and will be available if you s...

How to get there
Most guests take a Publico which is a 15 passenger van to the house. The cost is about $5 per person plus $1 or so per bag. Our care takers will meet you at the house, check you in and explain the island, restaurants, beaches and offer any advice you request.
