Vieques?

Jump to last reply

We are considering a trip to Vieques in Jan-Feb 2016, mostly to see the bio-luminescence bay. I know, we need to plan the trip around the new moon.
There is not a lot of info here about longer stays on Vieques, so please share your opinions and experience.

We love snorkeling…is it decent in Vieques? As a reference, snorkeling in Bonaire was great, we are going to Curacao in 2015, we visited St.John, Virgin Gorda, Anguilla in the past and loved them all for different reasons.

We always rent a small villa (1-2 BR), preferably on the beach, but there seem to be very few (if any) such villas on Vieques. I read that southern shore is better for beaches…please comment on this, and recommend us a villa (or small resort with individual casitas/bungalows). Our accommodation budget is about 2000 (maybe up to 2500 USD) for a week.

Safety? We expect regular petty theft incidents on the island, and we know how to be careful about them. But should we be concerned about villa burglary or an armed attack? Hopefully not.
If a beach rental is not possible, the 2nd best would be one with water and sunset view. Any recommendation? Thanks
