Contrary to what you have read online, you do not need a 4×4 vehicle to get to the beaches in Vieques unless you are planning on towing a boat or driving your car into the sand, which you are not supposed to do by law. If the road ahead of you is too rough with many water filled pot holes, don’t go there. This happens after heavy rains in beaches like Navio, La Plata, Punta Arenas, and the biobay entrance. Even if you have a 4×4, you don’t know what’s under the water. Many tourists get stucked in the mud, and sometimes in dry unpaved areas with their 4×4’s, and waste precious vacation time waiting for help and clearing with rental companies.
