  • I can't wait to go back!

    "My stay at La Finca was the highlight of my Puerto Rico vacation. The staff was kind and helpful, not to mention generous. Our room was paradise. Mangos fell outside our door, we ate starfruit off of the trees, used the free snorkeling gear, and checked out the recommended local eateries. La Finca is beautiful, and I can't wait to go back!"

  • Lovely hilltop home with sea view

    "Lovely well furnished spotless home on hilltop with view of Caribbean with all needed conveniences. trade winds are constant and cooling. Rural environment -- private but in a local non touristy neighborhood ....with roosters and horses yet close enough to towns and beaches. Coffee on the patio in morning and dinner with a view. We rented our car from owners saving money and time. Nice owners and helpful caretaker who got us at airport. Perfect stay."

  • Lovely property with fantastic views!

    "My husband and I celebrated our tenth anniversary in this charming rental! Thank you to our hosts Terry and Julie for making us feel so welcome. Our hosts were available to answer all of our questions and even included us in her weekly snorkeling club and yoga class.We were able to go to some snorkeling spots that we never would have found on our own. The unit is immaculate, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The expansive patio is a dream. From the deck we were witness to the coming and going of many sailboats, yachts, and freightors. And to the clip clop of horses hooves as the Esperanza riding company took its tours past the neighborhood. Situated in a nice neighborhood within a short walk to the Malecon and all of the action! I couldn't imagine a better and more affordable place to stay during your holiday on the charming Island de Vieques! Again many thanks to our hosts!"

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.
