Isla de Vieques

— 2 nights

Isla Nena

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at La Chiva and Sun Bay Beach. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Caracas Beach, take in the waterfront at Malecon, and glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.
