What we love about Vieques: Hmmm… what’s not to love? Once you get here, we think you’ll agree. Two thirds of the island have been declared a National Wildlife Refuge making it one of the greenest and less developed on the Caribbean. Vieques gives visitors an opportunity to experience Caribbean beaches in all their natural glory. Picture perfect beach coves without crowds, crystal clear waters, great snorkeling, sand colors ranging from white, to gold to black, the beaches are live postcards. Beautiful Paso Fino horses elegantly peacefully grace and gallop free around the island. The vibe is old Caribbean with a small population, there’s little development, At night the waters glow at Mosquito Bay, the brightest bioluminescent bay in the world.
