Yes we did swim in the bio-bay for about 20 min that second night. I would definitely recommend getting in! As for cooking, we did none! Our house had a grill, but we just went to the Super Morales in Isabel to stock up on milk, cereal, beach snacks, drinks (you will drink a lot). My 16 year old son can eat a box of cereal in one sitting. Also, get produce at the roadside stand, nothing looked great in the grocery stores. We went out each evening which is what we planned and budgeted for. I cannot think of anything we did not bring, only things we should have left at home! Our house was well equiped. Have fun, we will go back some day, I'm sure.

twoofsisters: Super Morales Market and Farmers' Market near GE on Tues. and Wed. mornings. Good lobster from fish man near ferry. Beware of locally caught fresh fish, other than lobster, due to ciguatera (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/11/ma....html?emc=eta1). This was our second vacation to Vieques and enjoyed it both times. Did 1/2 day trip to Biobay with Abe's 3 years ago and the 2 hr. trip with Island Adventures this time. Definitely get in the water.

Thanks for the replies, folks! Will definitely avoid barracuda and will be careful. Appreciate the heads-up.

Thanks for bringing back so many wonderful memories!! We first went to Vieques for holiday about 15 years ago--when people thought it was a bombed out island. It was such a special place. I am glad to hear that it is still the laid back island that we fell in love with. If you are looking for a side trip, a day on Culebra is always fun. A great beach-Flamingo--complete with a tank!!

Virginiafish, you can eat fresh fish in PR. Just make sure to avoid barracuda and any whole fish which is more than 3 pounds. My favorite is capitan.
