Isla de Vieques is a tiny magical island off the coast of Puerto Rico well-known for its bright bioluminescent bay, Mosquito Bay, the brightest of its kind in the world. It's stunningly undeveloped, which makes it a real tropical paradise with hidden coves, lush nature, incredible wildlife, and beaches straight out of heaven.
This beautiful, unspoiled island is a nature lovers paradise, with most activities and attractions based around the natural resources of this gem of an island. There are also some interesting museums that you must visit for a bit of the island's history.
The crystal turquoise waters are perfect for snorkeling, swimming, and scuba diving. Nature trails wind down to isolated beaches, you can go horseback riding or walk the trails, bicycling or kayak through the mangroves. With wonderful tropical flora and fauna, eco-minded travelers will love seeing the 300 year-old Ceiba Tree. Renting a Jeep is also a must to really explore the beauty of the entire island, but be warned as there are no traffic lights, just roaming wild horses! The top experience here has to be the absolutely out-of-this-world magic of the bioluminescent bay under the stars. Two thirds of the island is a reserve so there is virtually no light pollution, just a gorgeous sky of stars above.
December to March is high season here, but July can also be a great time to visit. Be sure to avoid hurricane and rainy season which is generally between August and November.
