vieques, puerto rico. i cannot say enough good things about this little island off of the puerto rico mainland. it completely exceeded all of our expectations!
we rented a jeep and explored all of the beaches on the island! they were beyond beautiful. clear water, soft silky sand for miles, and basically no one on the beach but us! blue beach was our favorite.
we stayed at the Sea Gate hotel and took an AMAZING 3 hr ride through the mountains and then onto the beach. we had the friendliest tour guide who not only gave us a tour of the island, but also introduced us to all the tropical fruit on the island [and showed us his house].
one of my favorite things about Vieques is all of the wild horses. they were EVERYWHERE! i mean literally, driving down the road and there are horses standing along the sides. horses on the beaches. horses in the towns. horses everywhere!! and they are so used to people you can walk right up to them 🙂 LOVE.
i can’t help myself. sorry for not being sorry.
we also had an amazing experience at one of the few bioluminescent bays left! i am hoping that some of my pictures taken with my waterproof camera will turn out. it was truly one of the most amazing things i have ever seen! we went out in the middle of the night in kayaks and the water lit up in neon colors!! SO NEAT! hopefully pictures to come.
