Next up on the itinerary: head off the coast to Culebrita Island, kick back and relax at Carlos Rosario Beach, browse the collection at Culebra Public Library, and visit a coastal fixture at Culebrita Lighthouse.

Isla de Vieques

Isla de Vieques ©
For sixty years until 2003, most of the Isla de Vieques was closed off to the public, with the US Navy using the island's beaches and surrounding waters for drills and testing of new military machinery, such as bombs.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Puerto Ferro Lighthouse and Fortin Conde de Mirasol Museum. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Sun Bay and Blue Beach. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Media Luna Beach, take a leisurely stroll along Mosquito Pier, tour the pleasant surroundings at Secret Beach, and look for all kinds of wild species at Vieques National Wildlife Refuge.
