Vieques and Culebra Travel Guide

Plan Your Vieques and Culebra Vacation

While the rest of the mainland rings with the adrenaline rush of Latin America, this pair of palm-fringed islands has the laid-back vibe of the Caribbean. Neither has much traffic—in fact, you won't find a single traffic light on either island. High-rise hotels haven't cast a shadow on the beaches. And there are no casinos, fast-food chains, strip malls, or most other trappings of modern life. "Barefoot" is often part of the dress code at the casual restaurants, and the hum you hear in your room more likely than not comes from a ceiling fan rather than an air conditioner. Things happen here poco a poco—slowly, at the islanders' easy pace.
