I am thinking of spending a month on one of those islands and working remotely from them. I would rent an apartment for a month. Basically I am just looking to get out of the cold city I live in during the winter. I struggle in winter during normal times, but this year, being in quarantine in winter will really be tough.

I am was born in Puerto Rico but raised in the mainland, so I am fluent and familiar with Puerto Rican culture. For this escape, I am looking for a place that will be laid back, where locals are friendly, it's safe, and offers me enough to do (in regards to food options and outdoor activities).

I really want to make this a memorable and unique experience of living on a tropical island for a little bit. The more Puerto Rican and less American it feels the better.

Which would you recommend?

I cannot speak of Vieques given that I've never been there. However, I have vacationed in Culebra twice and loved it. Stayed at Casa Ensenada both times. Not a high end place, but it met our needs for peace and tranquility with a nice view and a kayak to putz around in.

Flew in both times, something I highly recommend vs. waiting for a spot on the ferry.

Good luck!

Great that you have this opportunity. I vacationed both places a few years ago (4 days at each). Both are great! It might work for you to spend half the time one place, and the other half the other one. Assuming the rent would work out that way. I took the ferry to Vieques first, with no issues. Then, took the ferry back to Fajardo, then to Culebra. Yes, a long day, but relatively OK. Flying would be faster, but the ferry was a lot cheaper.

Depending on where you are staying, I'd say your food, entertainment, walking to/from options might be better in Vieques. I think your biggest challenge is going to be finding a place with stable internet if you need that to work remotely. I'd imagine that would be better in Vieques, but it might depend on location. Best to check beforehand. Vieques you have the bio-bay. Culebra you have Flamenco. Of course, on Culebra you could rent a golf cart to get around. Vieques you could rent a jeep.

Good luck!
