SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) -- Traveling by ferry just became
easier for tourists visiting the popular Puerto Rico islands of
Vieques and Culebra.

Officials with the Maritime Transportation Authority say a ferry
capable of carrying 600 passengers is now operating to both
islands. It's the biggest ferry out of a fleet of four.

Friday's announcement comes two weeks after the government
rented another ferry to boost the number of daily trips between the
islands from five to eight.

The island's ferry system has long been plagued by delays and
faulty equipment.
