Hola! Great snorkeling at Carlos Rosario beach next to Playa Flamenco. The entrance to the trail is on the left hand side of the parking lot at Flamenco. It is a brisk hike, 15 to 20 minutes moderate hiking. If you hike slow, I'm sure you can make it, it will just take you longer. You can get to Flamenco by publico or via rental car, the roads are clearly marked or ask a local if you get lost. Publicos are reliable but, they stop working at about 5-6 PM unless you make arrangements with one of these and ask to be picked up at a certain time. Publicos are about $2, a bit more if they have to pick you up at a certain location and time. Look under the TRANSPORT section on this website to get more info on transportation alternatives. There is also good snorkeling at the muellecito at Flamenco. Just bear right, down the beach and you will see a torn down pier which will provide you with nice snorkeling. You can always charter a boat to take you to Culebrita or Luis Pena. Via car or maybe publico can also take you to Melones which I've heard has good snorkeling. If walking is an issue, the muellecito or old pier at Flamenco beach will provide you with fun snorkeling.
For activities at Vieques, look for info at a search engine under Vieques Puerto Rico or try these: http://www.elenas-vieques.com/ferry.html
