Description

The small island of Vieques is located off the east coast of Puerto Rico, and is a short ferry ride from Fajardo. Approximately 21 miles long, this island is virtually untouched and undeveloped, due in large part to the fact that the island was formerly under the Navy's control. Though this island is rather quiet, there is plenty to do. Snorkeling is at its best here, as is diving. The well-known Bioluminescent Bay is also located here, which happens to be one of the most luminescent bays in the world. A trip to Vieques makes a great escape from the hustle and bustle of busy San Juan.
