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.

Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, identify plant and animal life at Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, and then enjoy the sand and surf at La Chiva.
