Vieques December 16-23-- How is it?

Been to PR many times, but not Vieques and not this time of year. I would like to know if it is quiet and uncrowded. These are my main criteria for going. I can always go some other time of year. Also, will businesses be open that week and through that Friday December 23 so we won't have problems getting into places and restaurants? I have a lead on a nice cheap place on the boardwalk in Esperanza, but would appreciate any specific recommendations that fit the bill for a quiet, peaceful getaway.

I've not been to Vieques during the times you mention, we go in early Nov and then in early Feb. It has been my experience to find things "busier", noiseir along the Malecon (but I use that term loosely). If you want "quiet and peaceful" I would recommend you look at a house out west of Esperanza or something up in the hills east. The Malecon is sort of a gathering place for tourists/locals, especially in peak season. There can be a lot of traffic and congestion along the Malecon. Also, sometimes (not sure just how often) cruise ships will be off the Malecon and will bring some of their passengers to the Malecon. You can search YouTube for some videos of driving along the Malecon.

Just my 2 cents


We keep a blog of out trips to the island. It has video and pictures, some helpful links. You can check it out if your interested:
