Isla de Vieques ©
For sixty years until 2003, most of the Isla de Vieques was closed off to the public, with the US Navy using the island's beaches and surrounding waters for drills and testing of new military machinery, such as bombs.
Get some cultural insight at Puerto Ferro Lighthouse and Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery. Visit Sun Bay and Caracas Beach for some beach relaxation. The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at La Chiva, stroll through Media Luna Beach, get engrossed in the history at Fortin Conde de Mirasol Museum, and add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour.
