A lovely island that joins Puerto Rico in what is sometimes known as the “Spanish Virgin Islands,” Vieques boasts crystal-clear waters, white-sand beaches and secret coves for snorkeling. You can find wild horses roaming the countryside, much of which is protected by the Vieques National Wildlife Refuge. In this secluded, largely undiscovered haven, the locals maintain a laid-back island atmosphere that can be hard to find on more developed Caribbean islands.
Puerto Rico was hit by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria in September 2017, and is suffering from widespread power outages and damage. Our top resort properties remain closed. The Indagare team is in touch with our local partners and can advise when to return to this island.

Designing Your Journey
Work with Indagare to design the perfect itinerary for an immersive journey. Our travel experts know the destination inside and out, and they can make recommendations based on your travel needs and preferences.
Vieques is a lesser-known destination that is best explored with an itinerary full of insider tips. Here is just one example of what our destination experts can create for you.
Day 1: Beaches
The best beaches on Vieques are located on the Southern Caribbean side, and are accessible by car. Spend the day relaxing in the sun with a good book, then enjoy a picnic dinner by candlelight as you listen to the waves and sip a local cocktail.
Day 2: Water Sports
Indagare can arrange a guided snorkeling or scuba tour that will take you to see the island’s coral reefs. We can charter a boat for those who would like to explore further offshore.
Day 3: Land Activities
Spend your last day in Vieques exploring the art community in the town of Isabela, where there are numerous galleries and studios to peruse. Indagare can also arrange an afternoon of horseback riding or hiking for those who want to spend time outside.
