Map of Vieques, Puerto Rico

The island is 21-miles long and only 4-miles wide at it's widest point.

There are two towns. The largest, Isabel Segunda, on the north side, is a 15-minute drive from Esperanza on the south side.

A rather remarkable 55% of the island is dedicated to the Vieques National Wildlife Refuge (green areas on the map below).

Vieques DOESN'T HAVE a "rush-hour"; traffic lights; fast-food chain restaurants; big-box stores or high-rise buildings.

Vieques DOES HAVE friendly locals, great beaches, colorful undisturbed coral reefs, first-rate restaurants, boutique hotels as well some high-end but low-profile hotels.
