Isabel Segunda, Isla de Vieques

Considered Viques’ capital, Isabel Segunda combines a charming mixture of old and new architecture with a rich, interesting history. The sleepy little town abounds with colorfully painted buildings and offers a wealth of historically significant sights, including the last Spanish fort ever built in the Americas: “El Fortín Conde de Mirasol.” Take a stroll through this quaint town and discover its churches, the main shopping district, and a hub of restaurants serving traditional Criollo cuisine. The town is also the arrival and departure point for the Viques ferry, with regular trips departing to Fajardo in Puerto Rico.
