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.
On the 3rd (Wed), hunt for treasures at Fish Market. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: shop like a local with Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery, then discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and then don't miss a visit to Puerto Ferro Lighthouse.
