THINGS TO DO IN VIEQUES
VISIT MOSQUITO BAY
If there's only one thing to do on the island, this is it. Mosquito Bay is the brightest bioluminescent bay in the world. In fact, there are only 5 bioluminescent bays on the entire planet and 3 of them are in Puerto Rico. Book a glass-bottom kayak tour to get the best view of this natural phenomenon. The darker the night, the brighter the bioluminescence, so book your tour around the moon phases if you can be flexible.
TAKE A DIP
There are plenty of water activities on the island of Vieques. Visit one of our favorite beaches, such as Playa la Chiva, Playa Media Luna, or Playa Caracas, and spend the day swimming alongside schools of brightly colored fish, manta rays, and sea turtles. Rent a stand-up paddle, jet ski, kayak or rowboat to see Vieques from a different perspective.
