Recent Vieques Island reviews

  • A Paradise Palace!

    "We are a group of repeat visitors to Vieques, it is truly one of our favorite places in the world. Las Terrazas was the best place we've stayed on the island. Our group included a total of 5 married couples and we were perfectly comfortable with lots of places to relax and have privacy, or hang out together as a group. We cooked dinner in the beautiful kitchen and used the BBQ grill, and one of our favorite places was sitting around the big table outside eating meals and drinking pina coladas! The ice machine was such a nice treat. We set up our hammocks under the canopy by the pool and settled in to the island life. Vieques doesn't get any better than this! The beds were very comfortable, the pool and gardens were fantastic, and the view was just perfect! We loved falling asleep and waking up to the sounds of Vieques, the coqui frogs are so magical. The location was great for us, as we like to spend our days exploring all of the beaches on the island. It was and easy drive to Esperanza and Isabel for dinner or groceries. We will be back!!!"

  • Fabulously pleasant time at Casa Ladera

    "One of the major reasons our visit to Vieques was wonderful was due to our choice to stay at Casa Ladera. Even before we arrived, Renee, the property manager, made us feel welcome. We were impressed by how promptly she responded to every question (no matter how trivial). We especially appreciated her suggestion to use Abreeze/Acacia jeep rental. Renee also arranged for our transportation from the airport to the car rental. Our 2nd floor unit was clean and had a spacious living room and kitchen. Aside from food, drink and snorkeling equipment, Casa Ladera provided everything (even coffee filters). And the view of the ocean from the balcony was a bonus. Location-wise, we really liked that there was a beach right down the street and a grocery store practically right around the corner. Renee was marvelously helpful in making suggestions. Every place she suggested turned out great – the Farmers’ Market, Conuco, Next Course, and Caracas Beach (for swimming - due to having the least amount of seaweed) and Rompeolas (for snorkeling). Throughout our stay, Renee was easily accessible via text or phone call. To top things off, her dog, Krypto, greeted us with a wag whenever we saw him. Overall, we had a fabulously pleasant, relaxing time at Casa Ladera. We definitely recommend it, especially for people who want a low-key environment and want the option of cooking or grilling - should the mood strike. Also, the place is beautifully maintained and the pool was always pristine. Everything was better up close! Thanks to Renee (and, of course, the owner, Jen) for making our first visit to Vieques a memorable one. For in-depth reviews of the restaurants listed above, visit the Trip Advisor site and look for contributions from Mundoreiser (that’s us)."

  • Always a pleasure

    "This is our second visit to Vieques and our second stay at Journeys End. We always have a large group and this year we rented 4 homes with a total of about 35 people. This home allows the whole group to have dinner and visit either upstairs or in the outside area next to the pool. We have the best gatherings here at this home. The drive to the beaches is very easy...both the caribbean beaches or the Atlantic side of the island. All the amenities are fantastic and all the bedrooms are spacious and air conditioned. The owners have added upgrades to the kitchen since our last visit and also an outside bath and shower next to the pool. Highly recommend this home and have had wonderful memories here!!"

  • A true Oasis

    "As soon as we arrived at the house, my husband and I had to pinch ourselves a few times. The views are simply spectacular! We must have taken hundreds of pictures over the course of our stay. You just have to experience it for yourself. The house is well equipped for heading to all the nearby beaches - beach chairs, coolers, plenty of towels, etc. But we really enjoyed relaxing in and by the beautiful infinity pool each morning. We often used the kitchen to cook our own meals to save some money. The house is conveniently located near the town of Esperanza so it's easy to get to all the bars and restaurants. I have never had such great food and cocktails on an island before. My husband and I were very impressed with the house and the island and can't wait to plan our next trip back!"

Vieques Island Travel Tips

Travelers to Vieques Island Vacation Rentals

Vieques Island is a long narrow island that forms part of Puerto Rico. It is one of the country’s premiere eco-friendly destinations. Most of the development is in the center of the island. The coastline and beaches are mostly national parks and nature reserves. The result is a pristine island destination. This attracts travelers who enjoy exploring overland. Many of the beaches can only be accessed over rough gravel roads and you will need a Jeep or 4x4 in order to drive there. There are many areas that can be explored by hiking. Photographers will find ample opportunities to capture the beautiful beaches and dry coastal forests on film.

Getting to Vieques Island Resorts

Flying from North America, you will route through San Juan in Puerto Rico. From there, you will need to take a taxi to the ferry port in Fajardo. It is advisable to pre-book a taxi for this transfer. The drive takes approximately an hour. If you do not pre-book a taxi then you are likely to pay much more. The last ferry to Vieques Island departs at 6 p.m. or 8 p.m., depending on if it is a weekday or weekend. Ensure that you have enough time for the ferry connection. If your flight arrives late into San Juan, you can stay overnight in Fajardo or the nearby seaside town of Luquilo. You can then get the first ferry out the next morning without having to travel too far. Once on Vieques Island, you can either hire a Jeep to get around or use a taxi to transfer to your rental home. If you plan to do lots of exploring then it’s advisable to rent a Jeep. A normal car is not suitable as many of the roads to the nature reserves are made of gravel and quite badly eroded. Rental companies will not allow you to take a standard car to the beach, instead they will insist that you hire a Jeep or similar 4x4.

Vieques Island Travel Attractions

One of the island’s most famous attractions is the Bioluminescent Bay. It is a unique natural phenomenon that is amazing to experience. It is best viewed at night when you can see the full effect of the microorganisms as they light up in the water.

Other attractions that are quite unique are the wild horses that roam the island. They were originally brought to the island in the early 1500s from Spain, with the objective of setting up a breeding project. After the collapse of the short-lived gold rush, horses became Puerto Rico’s primary export product. Today, many wild horses can be seen on the island. Horseback rides can be arranged from certain stables on the island who have trained horses available.

Near Green beach is a magnificent Ceiba tree believed to be more than 300 years old. It grows right alongside the road. Make a stop to view it while on your explorations. The tree makes for some fantastic photo opportunities.

There are many historical sites on the island. At the Vieques Conservation and Historical Trust in Esperanza, there are a small shop and museum. Here, you can obtain more information on places of interest on the island.

Staying on Vieques Island

Many of the rental homes on Vieques Island are located high on the hilltops. This means that you have spectacular panoramic views of the island and surrounding seas. Set in peaceful natural surroundings, it’s like having your own private island abode. The rental villas on Vieques Island are perfect for relaxing and getting away from it all. When you are not exploring the island’s natural treasures, you can spend your time on the porch admiring the view and enjoying a favorite book.
