Pura Vida is an inviting home located in Esperanza, the quaint fishing town of Vieques as well as the most popular tourist area.

The three bedroom, one bath house is located in a safe neighborhood, only 1 block, or less than a 5 minute walk, to the Malecon. We are now 100% Air Conditioned at Pura Vida. All 3 bedrooms as well as the main living space have air conditioning. *** Please visit our web site to view additional pictures, maps of our location on the island, floor plans and real time availability calendar*** There is a lack of rental cars on Vieques, and if not reserved ahead of time, they may all be sold out. Avoid being left without a car to explore Vieques. Our SUV has three rows of seats holding 8 passengers. If you are a larger group staying at Pura Vida, an 8 passenger SUV negates the need to rent two vehicles, you can everyone fit in one SUV, thus saving you money on both rental fees, gas etc. We are baby and child friendly! We had our first child in November of 2007, our second in January 2010. We enjoy bringing them to the island and they love Media Lunas gentle waves and shallow beach. At Pura Vida we have a Pack N Play crib, child booster seat for feeding (works well instead of high chair), and two convertible car seats for our Jeep, capable of forward and rear facing. We also have a bunch of beach toys, child snorkel gear, books, games and puzzles to keep kids entertained. That is if they aren't worn out after a long day at the beach. We are happy to provide these child amenities to our guests free of charge, pending no abnormal damage to them. We also have a TV, DVD player, vast library of adult and children DVDs and a Playstation 2 with games for you to enjoy. Although we offer a SUV, our convenient location allows one to easily enjoy much of what Vieques has to offer without driving. Stroll to dinner and dine overlooking the Caribbean, grab a drink at one of the oceanfront bars, spend the day at the park, or experience the beauty (and nightlife) of Esperanza Beach and the Malecon, all within walking distance.More

We felt safe on this quite street. The auto rental was a bonus to get us all (6) out and about. It was our first visit to Veiques and this was a nice place to get acquainted.

About the neighbourhood
We are one block to the Malecon in Esperanza, in a safe neighborhood. One can walk to dinner, drinks or to watch the sunset in less than 5 minutes very easily.
How to get there
Most guests take a Publico which is a 15 passenger van to the house. The cost is about $5 per person plus $1 or so per bag. Our care takers will meet you at the house, check you in and explain the island, restaurants, beaches and offer any advice you request.
