Isla de Vieques

— 3 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.
Isla de Vieques is known for beaches, nature, and wildlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: enjoy the sand and surf at Balneario Sun Bay, stroll through Playa La Chiva, take in the waterfront at Mosquito Pier, and take some stellar pictures from Puerto Ferro Lighthouse.
