Vieques, Puerto Rico

Spring Break 2007
A small island off of Puerto Rico...previously owned by the US Navy and used for bombing practice. After gaining its independence from the Navy, it is now a virtually untouched island oasis, often referred to as the Spanish Virgin Islands. We flew into San Juan, Puerto Rico and then took a taxi to Fajardo...where we awaited our 1hr+ ferry ride to Vieques. We stayed in a beach front house, overlooking a small pond (the afternoon destination of some of the island's wild horses). We rented a rugged jeep and spent the week exploring private beaches, snorkeling in clear blue water, and enjoying the culture and language around us! Fantastic vacation...we want to go back but there is so much else of the world to explore...
