  • 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!"

  • Banana Wind Vieques

    "Had a wonderful time staying at Banana Wind. This modern, concrete house is designed by a locally known architect and well appointed and maintained with great amenities including professional range, outdoor grill and fridge, alarm system, washer and dryer, wireless and satellite radio. It was a convenient location and a perfect size for the three of us! The house had a beautiful swimming pool- although the water was too cold to use during our recent stay. Great views from all rooms and rooftop. The house looks quite large from the exterior but really only comfortably accommodates 3 or 4 people. Our only major criticism was that there was no living room or place to hang out or eat or entertain indoors (other than a counter with two barstools and small sofa). The caretaker and owner were very responsive and helpful when contacted. We would definitely stay here again!"

  • The view alone is worth the 5 stars!

    "This trip was the most relaxing & comfortable vacation I've ever had! We came for a Mother-Daughter vacation. Last time I stayed in El Conquistador, $300+ a night resort. While We had a great view there, & fancy air conditioned room, it paled in comparison to Hilltop. I would have slept in a tent on the HUGE veranda just for the AMAZING view! Second to the amazing views was the privacy between the two bedrooms. The second bedroom was an attached casita. It had its own entrance from the veranda. Lots of privacy! Perfect for two couples, parents wanting a little sanctuary to themselves, also my mom & I, She snores like a freight train. The beds are huge, enough for 3 lol, REALLY comfortable, with down pillows. Both rooms had full sized closets including plenty of hangers. The 2 bathrooms were clean, well decorated, plenty of towels & the main one had a deep tub (lots of storage too). In fact the whole apartment was well decorated; heavy wood carved furniture in every room. The kitchen has everything you might need and you aren't far from a grocery. In fact, you aren't far from anything. Centrally located; all the bays you can see from the veranda are the best beaches on the island, maybe 15min away. 4 were even voted top beaches in 2013 by Tripadvisor! On the other side, you can see Isabel Segunda (where the ferry docks). in the distance, on a clear day, you can see all the way to the main island & Culebra. Seriously! You have 360 degrees of unobstructed amazing views. Starting from the moment I woke up, I could see the ocean out my bedroom window. Then I'd take my morning coffee to the veranda and take in the view. Trade winds to cool you at night, beautiful views to wake up too... We expected to run down to the beaches, but we just spent the first few hours of the day on the veranda. -In full disclosure, the negatives (while few), were; really only room for one car to park, had hot showers 90% of the time, the only real problem was the wifi. It only worked along the back wall, so in my bedroom and on the couch. Lol While & will hopefully enjoy the sounds of the Coquis as you fall asleep, FYI you will hear dogs barking & roosters from all over the island. Still wouldn't keep me away from hilltop though! The animals are part of the charm of this island! Of course I have to mention Barry, he was extremely helpful and hospitable. He lives downstairs, but is very quiet, so no interference with your privacy. He will text if you need to communicate."

  • This House is Amazing

    "My Wife and I stayed at this house the first four days during our 8 day honeymoon, the other 4 days were spent at the W resort. While the W resort was lavish and posh, we much preferred the ambiance of this beautiful house up in the hills. Staying at Vieques 360 was the highlight of our trip. The house was every bit as amazing as it seems in the pictures. It is charming, relatively private (Just a few houses in close proximity) and captures the nature of Vieques. The house is plenty big enough for 2-4 people and it has the most amazing pool, looking out over the whole island. The pictures really don't do justice the feeling of sitting in that beautiful pool overlooking the island and out into the ocean. There is an unbelievable roof top deck. Perfect for sunrises, sunsets and sitting out under the stars. The bedroom has french doors overlooking the island and there is just the most soothing island breeze that constantly keeps air circulating through the house. We enjoyed every minute of our stay at this house. We were able to do our own cooking some nights (Plenty of items to use) and the management team made sure the pool was kept in pristine condition while we were there."

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.
