Isla de Vieques ©
For sixty years until 2003, most of the Isla de Vieques was closed off to the public, with the US Navy using the island's beaches and surrounding waters for drills and testing of new military machinery, such as bombs.
Take a break from the city and head to Sun Bay and La Chiva. Shop till you drop at Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery and Gallery Galleon. The adventure continues: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, browse the eclectic array of goods at Fish Market, stop by Isla Vida, and stroll through Caracas Beach.

To see other places to visit, photos, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Isla de Vieques trip planner.

Houston, USA to Isla de Vieques is an approximately 8-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Houston to Isla de Vieques.
