Expect the Unexpected
Vieques is a very laid-back under developed Caribbean island. Once a secret escape only for those in the know, Vieques has recently become one of the hottest destinations in the Caribbean, yet when you are here, you will feel like it is still a secret. Here you will find gorgeous beaches, warm, friendly people, plenty of places for a cold beverage, great restaurants, quaint shops, galleries, museums, active-lifestyle friendly with access to water sports, hiking, bicycling, and horseback riding. You won't find crowded beaches, night clubs, casinos or rows of tourist shops. It’s truly a unique, special place with the added allure of elegant Paso Fino horses roaming free. Isla de Vieques is one of the last destinations that truly remains like the Caribbean of the past – quiet, lush, uncrowded, and with unparalleled natural beauty.
The amazing island of Vieques packs a lot into a little space (only 20 miles long and 4 miles wide) and boasts the largest green space in the Caribbean. This small Puerto Rican treasure is home to the largest natural wildlife refuge in the Caribbean, covering 3,100 acres of green lush land. In Vieques there are no traffic lights, just narrow roads leading to breathtaking places, a charming colourful town and naturally landscaped beaches free of development.
Just be prepared, because once you get here and experience the beaches, you’ll be spoiled for life. If you’re searching for a unique vacation, and one that brings on feelings of wonder, relaxation, and connects you back with nature, then Vieques is for you. Beach and nature lovers will get lost in the beauty and magic of the island like no other place in the Caribbean. Foodies will be surprised and delighted by the quality and variety of restaurants on such a tiny island, with options to suit all budgets. Whether you choose to relax all day on the beach, participate in water or land sports, or explore the natural wonders, Vieques has something for everyone looking to get away from it all.
