This day didn’t start well. Not only we had to get up very early but also the trip to Fajardo (located on the east cost of Puerto Rico) took way longer than planed. Thanks to the driving skills of most Puerto Ricans who notoriously block both lanes at a speed of 50 MPH – even though you are allowed to go 65. Originally, it was our plane to take the 9 am ferry to Culebra, a very nice island. However, we didn’t make it in time, therefore the ferry was already booked out. So we decided to go to an other island called Vieques. The beache we went to was amazing and since not so many tourist go there we had a lot of space.
Another advantage of Vieques is the 3 pm return ferry. Its earlier than the one from Culebra and therefore we were able to see one more natural highlight of Puerto Rico - the Bio Bay. Its filled with small algae who use bioluminescence to glow as soon as they feel threatened. It was a very nice experiance, especially kayaking in pitch black (the last picture
