Many nature lovers know Rio Grande as the gateway to the only tropical rainforest within the U.S.
Kick off your visit on the 13th (Thu): step off the mainland to explore Palomino Island and then get some thrills out on the water with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure. On the 14th (Fri), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take in the dramatic scenery at Cascada La Mina (La Mina Falls), then stop by Caribbean Trading Company Store, and then whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Secret Beach and La Chiva. Step off the beaten path and head to Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Malecon. There's much more to do: trot along with a tour on horseback, take a leisurely stroll along Mosquito Pier, delve into the distant past at El Hombre de Puerto Ferro, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Caracas Beach.

For more things to do, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Isla de Vieques online trip builder .
