This was our second time traveling to PR. We absolutely love it there. Our itinerary both times was arriving to Old San Juan, then flying to the island of Vieques and then back to Old SJ. Only 3.5 hours away from New York and still a U.S. territory, this place is a Caribbean gem. SJ is beautiful and has a very relaxing pace. Not slow, just relaxing. The island of Vieques is breathtaking – an eye candy. The La-La land.
Isla de Vieques is an island with many gorgeous beaches, breathtaking views, snorkeling and fishing areas and the famous Bio-Bay. For these reasons, the island is gradually becoming a main attraction for Puerto Rico visitors. But few know that it is also a former Navy land and now a National Wildlife Refuge. Abundant in population of wild horses and birds and adorned with lush exotic trees and flowers, the island is a true beauty.
