  • 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!"

  • Great neighborhood home

    "We stayed 5 nights in the lower unit of Casa Jenny and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We appreciated Kikito's picking us up and returning us to the ferry, as well as his pointing out items of interest on the drive. The house was convenient to every thing we needed and provided all the necessities - the washer and drier were a real bonus! It was fun to have extras like the rafts, snorkels, puzzles, etc., to make our stay more fun (especially on the several rainy days we experienced). Living like a local does include sharing their noises - roosters mostly, with the frequent cars blasting music or propaganda - but that added to making it a more authentic experience. We did not have a car, but walked to several of the nearby beautiful beaches. If we come again, we'll spring for the rental just so we can explore beaches outside our walking range. All in all, we loved Casa Jenny and our stay in Esperanza."

  • Shoot'in the Caribbean Breeze

    "We had the vacation of a lifetime. I kept expecting Robin Leach to step out at any minute. Palatial to say the least!!!We shared the Villa with 2 other couples along with our 2 children and our nanny and there wasn't anything we could think of that would have made our stay more comfortable. Actually we asked for a griddle the 1st day and Karen the property host dropped off a new one the very next day. She would occasionally check in to make sure we were happy and was very helpful in terms of restaurants and activity hints. Forget Robin Leach, Karen's a real keeper. The 2nd floor veranda was perfect for sunrise breakfasts and sunset pre-dinner appetizers and smoothies with a constant Caribbean tropical breeze. The kids loved the pool and billiards table and I have to say everyone loved the beds in terms of comfort. The Island has many awesome beaches to discover and lots of snorkeling opps. Great restaurants but the kitchen is so well equipped that cooking is a must. On Monday night we all went to Chez Shack for some great BBQ and Reggae dancing. I actually fell through a thin wall on the dancing floor which Ill never hear the end of. A Real blast! Hiking the property and checking out the many fruit trees was a real treat for me considering Im a tree nut. I also rented a mt bike and because the island is so small i was able to ride the whole thing in a few days. I recommend bring your own snorkel equipment, its worth it. Normally I don't ever go to the same destination twice when I vacation but Id definitely make an exception with Vista Linda. What a gem!!"

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.
