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.
Start off your visit on the 3rd (Wed): hunt for treasures at Fish Market. On the next day, take in the exciting artwork at Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and then get great views at Puerto Ferro Lighthouse.
