My boyfriend and I visited Vieques last month and fell in love with it. We stayed for 7 days at the Tropical Guest House which was a perfect choice for us. We stayed in a cozy little room for 2 with a/c, nothing lavish, but it was decorated very nicely. Most importantly, it was very clean and we had housekeeping every day. This was a plus since we did not expect it. Another plus was the free wi-fi, since my workaholic boyfriend brought his laptop. We had the essentials for a comfortable stay at a very reasonable cost. The guest house staff was very very friendly. We felt right at home right away. We also took advantage of the lovely lounge on the first floor. We were invited to have coffee there in the morning and also used the space to connect to the internet. Although we had wi-fi in the room, the sexy atmosphere of the lounge was hard to pass up.
The guest house is in a quiant neighborhood and has a little convenience store right across the street. We were able to walk into town for breakfast at the Panaderia and at Roy's (I recommend both). We walked all over the little town one afternoon and found a lot of great shops and got a real feel of the daily life in Vieques. The town, called Isabela Segunda, is where you will find the only Banks/ATM's on the island. And if you should need it, the post office is here too. We visited the historical fort which is a few minutes walk from the guest house. It has a museum and a wonderful view.
We rented a car for a few days as was recommended so that we could explore the entire island. This allowed us to visit practically every beach. Our favorite beaches were Red beach, Blue beach, and Navio beach. We explored Esperanza, which was great also. This was more of a tourist area. I am usually not a fan of tourist areas, but this one was small enough to not feel overwhelming. The Malecon as it is called, is just about 3 blocks long, with restaurants and shops. We really liked Duffy's for lunch/dinner and Belly Buttons was very cute. We had breakfast there one morning and it was very good.
Let me not forget to mention our bio-bay tour with Island Adventures. It was an experience that we will never ever forget. Overall, Vieques was an unforgettable trip for us. It was the most perfect relaxing getaway. We can't wait to go back.
