My wife and I and some friends just returned from a four night stay at Casa de Amistad. We loved the place. It is clean, comfortable and has a great atmosphere. We would definitly return there if we ever go back to Vieques. We thought it is a great deal for what you get.

Some notes about Vieques. Though there is not alot of people there we found that you have to make reservations for any of the restaraunts that draw a crowd. Meaning, Media Luna, Island Steakhouse, Chez Shack, and a few others. We would have saved some aggravation if we had known about this in advance. Vieques is a great place if you are looking for beautiful beaches that are not crowded. Plan on renting a Jeep, most of the good beaches required at least a ten minute drive on dirt/gravel roads. Many rental car places will drop your car off at hotel if you ask. And you definitly need to rent a car.

Also if you are taking the ferry get there very early. We showed up at 6:00 am for the 6:30 am ferry on a Wednesday and the ferry sold out before we could get tickets.

We were invited to a wedding on Vieques, which we only knew as a place having something to do with Puerto Rico. Every single person who came to the wedding stayed at a large resort and spent $300 a night-not us! We stayed in the Casa de Amistad in the port town of Isabel II, and we made the right decision and spent about 1/4 the money. Our hosts were a great couple from NY, Owen and Dan, who provided us with everything you need for a beach vacation gratis, as well as terrific advice. We spent the days with a picnic lunch on the most perfect beaches I have seen since Kauai, while all of the other people who travelled down for the wedding lounged at the pool at the resort, and might as well have been in St. Louis.
For anyone traveling to Vieques, this is my advice:
1) Don't take the ferry; take a plane
2) Rent a car; make sure it is a Jeep because the roads are awful.
3) Stay in either Isabel II or Esperanza.
4) Eat as much steak as you can because it is amazing. Puerto Rican coffee is also pretty killer.
5) The bioluminescent bay is a don't miss. It might be the single most amazing thing I have ever experience.
6) The bakeries are also sandwich shops;they are open as long as the bread lasts, so get there early for sandwiches (a typical sandwich is ham and cheese,and costs $1.50- much better than the $20 burgers our fellow travelers were munching on next to the pool).
7) Stay at the Casa de Amistad in room 1.

Where else would you be greeted by name by the owner, who is relaxing on his front porch as you walk up from the ferry? I wish my own home were as fresh and lovely and friendly as Casa de Amistad, which definitely lives up to its name. The courtyard and pool are a quiet oasis; the kitchen is invaluable for making lunches for the beach, or a quick dinner if you don't want to go out (the grocery store is two blocks away); Isa the dog is a charmer! There's even a little TV room if you need to catch a little tube. Thank you, Owen, for creating this beautiful place!
