Itinerary

Wednesday, September 20
Arrive into Vieques International Airport and head straight to the W Airport Lounge for a cool drink. You will be met by staff who will take care of your luggage and transport you to the resort - only five minutes down the road! Check into your room and explore the beautiful grounds and beach. Tonight your group will have a very special outdoor welcome meal - your family style menu will include all sorts of local specialties. 

 

Thursday, September 21
Start out your day on the right foot with a bootcamp, yoga or Pilates work out. After breakfast, hit the beach. Umbrellas and snorkel gear, floaties, and kayaks are included in your stay so take advantage of the beautiful water. This evening, grab a cocktail at the Living Room bar and enjoy the DJ and outdoor terrace with fire pits.

 

Friday, September 22
Today your group might want to get some hiking in. The W offers several guided hikes you can take advantage of to get you out into the jungle or isolated beaches. Otherwise, if getting on a bike is more your style, take the 5-6 hour complete island tour by mountain bike.  Your trip will also take you through the wildlife refuge that takes over much of the island. End your evening with a kayak ride through the magical bioluminescent bay that Vieuqes is famous for.

 

Saturday, September 23

Today is your last full day on Vieques so take advantage of it!  Maybe another bootcamp, beach run, or a yoga session is in order. Or treat yourself to that spa treatment you’ve earned.  The AWAY Spa offers a range of treatments with custom-made scrubs and rubs created by their in-spa mixologist. Choose a sea view treatment room or one with a private outdoor shower for a memorable setting. Enjoy drinks with your group to celebrate a great trip together before resting up before your flights home the next day.
