Introduction to the Island
Vieques derives its name from the Taíno Indian word 'bieke' - for small island. Vieques still is a small and beautiful island. These pages were created to either whet your appetite or maybe you'll find, that there's not enough wild nightlife or gambling and Vieques is not for you after all.
Please use the navigation on the left to read about Vieques' History

For a printed guide I highly recommend purchasing Lonely Planet's Puerto Rico
. It has a very well researched section on Vieques!
Enjoy Vieques, our beautiful island in the Caribbean :)
