Recent Vieques Island reviews

  • Beautiful house with lots of room to spread out!

    "My husband and I stayed at Los Frutales for 4 days and we wished we stayed longer! The house was huge and we loved having so many different options of places to relax- the pool, the deck, the gazebo, the 3 different living areas. It was in a great location where you could get to Isabel II or Esperanza in 10 mins. The kitchen had everything and more you needed to grill and cook. My only reasons for rating less than 5 stars is that 1) we had technology problems with the house phone, DVD player, and sometimes wifi not working (the phone was a major problem because Verizon doesn't work in PR so we were counting on the house phone for restaurant reservations, etc) and 2) it is LOUD at night. The windows have no glass so even with the shutters closed, the AC on, ear plugs in with pillows over our heads, the all night roosters and dogs barking didn't allow for the peaceful sleep we were hoping for on vacation. If you are a light sleeper like me, bring noise canceling headphones. Otherwise, we loved the house, the pool, the location, and all of Vieques!"

  • A Quiet Vacation Retreat

    "There is really nothing I can add to all the rave reviews. My husband and I spent a week in the 3 bedroom villa and it was absolutely perfect. It has everything you need and more. It is very tastefully decorated and extremely clean. I still think of our morning coffee on the lovely terrace looking out at the wonderful view! As someone shared with me prior to the trip "the fashion police are not on Vieques"!! Packing for this trip was so easy. A few casual outfits, bathing suits and sunscreen are all you need! The restaurants were excellent and there are MANY to choose from! We both look forward to another trip to this little piece of paradise. We highly recommend Cima del Mundo!"

  • Couldn't have been happier!

    "We were so pleased by our week rental over Christmas at Isola. Our family includes two college age kids and we enjoyed the porch more than we could have imagined. We drank our coffee while reading the paper in the morning (wireless worked great!), watched the sunset over cocktails in the evening before dinner and stayed up late at night playing card games and talking. Not a single mosquito, but I understand that may have been the time of year. The beds were comfortable and the whole house was spotless. The kitchen had just exactly what we needed (a set of measuring cups would have been useful) and we cooked most of our meals there including Christmas Eve and Christmas dinners. The lobster from the fisherman was delicious and lobster pot and gas grill were great to have. Our little beach in front was a great place to do a little fly fishing in the evening - my husband's favorite activity - and we took an evening swim a few times. We had fun exploring the rest of the beaches on Vieques but the best part of our whole trip was this house..."

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.
