Isabel II is the largest town on the island....while Esperanza is the happy-go-lucky town with lots happening all the time, Isabeel II is more of the working man's town. But here you can find some great restaurants....try Coqui Fire and Taverna...really good food. Come to BlackBeards for your aquatic needs (snorkel, scuba, sunning, etc). Lots of one way street here... More

Little Town with lot of contrast. Small little house withe oceans views of million dollars . People very friendly . In the morning you can take a breakfast at La Viequense ( Bakery ) where all the locals gather in the morning. Everything is at walk distance. There is a excellent budget restaurant ( El Yate near the Ferry) Puertorican... More

This beautiful, old town is a place to enjoy. It is rustic and weathered compared to other Caribbean destinations and PR locations. But that is just what keeps this island so beautiful - it is remote, not very developed and is truly on "island time." We stayed in a rental home during our week just outside of the Isabella center.... More

This beach seems to have fallen from paradise. Its crystal clear tropical waters and warm sand make visitors wish they could stay there forever.

Lots of Historical Sites to see. Many resorts, hotels and out-of-the-way places to stay. With so many options there is something to see and do for everyone.

This is the capital of Vieques. It's a small town, though the biggest on the island. It's also where you arrive if you take the ferry. It's not very touristy, and there isn't a whole lot to see, but there are some good restaurants.

We were not impressed by this little town. We had a better time just driving around and exploring the island. I think this might be the best spot for shopping. There was a great smoothie stand across from the ferry. Get a delicious smoothie while there.
