Welcome to Vieques Island

The Story of Vieques

Studies show that Vieques was first inhabited by Native Americans who came from South America about 1500 years before Christopher Columbus set foot in Puerto Rico in 1493. After a brief battle between local Indians and Spaniards, the Spaniards took control of the island, turning the locals into their slaves. In 1811, Don Salvador Melendez, then governor of Puerto Rico, sent military commander Juan Rosello to begin what later became the take-over of Vieques by the people of Puerto Rico. In 1816, Vieques was visited by Simón Bolívar. Teofilo Jose Jaime Maria Gillou, who is recognized as the founder of Vieques as a town, arrived in 1823, marking a period of economic and social change for the island of Vieques.

Thousands of Lush Green Acres - Vieques isalnd, Puerto Rico

By the second part of the 19th century, Vieques received thousands of black immigrants who came to help with the sugar plantations. Some of them came as slaves, and some came on their own to earn extra money. Most of them came from the nearby islands of St. Thomas, Nevis, St. Kitts, St. Croix and many other Caribbean nations.

Since 1938, the United States Navy has occupied a significant portion of the Puerto Rican island of Vieques, a fifty-two square-mile island eight miles east of the mainland of Puerto Rico. By the end of the twentieth century, the U.S. Navy controlled over 70% of the island. Thousands of the island's 10,000 inhabitants had been forcibly removed from their homes and relocated to the center portion of the island, surrounded by training grounds, weapons depots, and bomb sites on both sides. According to the U.S. Navy, the island was used for live-fire practice, air-to-ground bombing, ship-to-shore shelling and various other maneuvers. Other countries also used the island for training purposes. During World War Two and the Cold War, Vieques and other Caribbean islands served as important military locations for the U.S. armed forces.

In 1998, 23,000 bombs were dropped on the island and live training took place 180 days out of the year. Additionally, the municipality faced an unemployment rate above 50% and more than 70% of the population lived below the poverty line. A campaign to remove the U.S. Navy two decades earlier had failed after violence broke out and the Puerto Rican governor was forced to sign a good-neighbor agreement with the United States to guarantee continued financial support.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union at the end of the twentieth century, the U.S. began to reassess its presence at various bases around the world. The people of Vieques hoped that the two Navy sites on the island would be among those closed. When Vieques was not included on the list, the grassroots movement was revitalized in its fight to evict the U.S. Navy and return control of the island to Puerto Rican citizens.

Navy History - "Stop Terrorizing Vieques"In March, 1999, Vieques native David Sanes was killed by a bomb dropped by a military jet during bombing exercises. A a civilian employee of the Navy, Sanes was on duty at a military Observation Point when two bombs fell 1½ miles (2½ kilometres) away from their designated target; one of them fell 300 feet (100 metres) away from Sanes and exploded, killing him instantly.

Ever since, Puerto Ricans from all over mainland Puerto Rico as well as from the United States travelled to Vieques to protest the bombings, by illegally introducing themselves on the bombing grounds and camping there. People from all over Latin America joined the struggle. Many celebrities, including the political leader Ruben Berrios, singers Danny Rivera and Ricky Martin, boxer Felix Trinidad, Mexican actor Edward James Olmos and Guatemala’s Nobel Prize winner Rigoberta Menchu have protested. Pope John Paul II said that he wanted peace for Vieques. And many hundreds of Puerto Ricans served time in jail for illegally entering the bombing grounds.

Navy History - Isla de Vieques, Puerto Rico

In 1999, then-Governor Pedro Rosselló began talks with the U.S. government to try to look for a solution to the problem, and in 2001, Governor Sila María Calderón signed a treaty with President George W. Bush that guaranteed the military’s leaving of the island in May of 2003.

On May 1, 2003, the military commenced their moving out of Vieques, in an event that was covered by the international media. At 12:01 AM EST of that day, a street party erupted all over Vieques, many of Vieques’ citizens celebrating the military’s move out of the island. The celebration turned violent as celebrants destroyed $750,000 of facilities turned over to the local government by the U.S. Navy.

Ever since that disturbance, things have been tranquil on the island and there have been no more violent protests. The Navy gave $40 million in direct funds which are now being used to improve the infrastructure of the island. Tourism is increasing and Vieques is rapidly becoming a popular tourist destination. The lands previously owned by the Navy have been turned over to the U.S. National Fish & Wildlife Service for management. The immediate bombing range area on the eastern tip of the island suffers from severe contamination but the remaining areas are mostly open to the public, including many beautiful undeveloped beaches which were closed during the recent protests.

SORCE' (sore-say) is the name of an important archaeological site located on the south side of Vieques near the town of Esperanza. A long-term excavation project on the site revealed ceramic materials from ‘La Hueca’ culture that flourished on the island between 160 BC and 500 AD. The ceramic styles found include influences from throughout the Caribbean and as far away as the Orinoco River Valley of Venezuela, suggesting Sorcé may have been a site of trade, strategically located at the entrance to the Greater Antilles.

This unique history of blending materials and cultures influences the menu of Sorcé, pulling together tastes passed down through generations of Viequense and created with locally sourced and in-season ingredients. Signature dishes include fresh-catch fish marinated in a local mojo recipe; Puerto Rican mofongo; stuffed Caribbean lobster; whole coli rubia; churrasco with garlic, brujo oregano herb; and sopa de marisco, a Viequense version of bouillabaisse, or seafood soup. The extensive wine cellar is high on premium wines from around the world, with an accent on vineyards from North and South America, and complimented with an expert list of signature cocktails and specialty rum flights.

Welcome to Vieques Island

Bio Bay Tour

Please us the scroll bar on right to read all of the information contained on this page.

Bioluminescent Bay

The World's Best Bio Bay

"Mosquito Bay, also known as the Bioluminescent Bay, on the south coast of Vieques is undoubtedly the healthiest and best example of a bioluminescent bay in the world. With the slightest agitation of the water tiny bioluminescent creatures emit an electric bluish white light.

Fish swimming in the bay leave a bioluminescent trail as do boats, raindrops and people swimming. This phenomenon of bioluminescence is so intense, so awe-inspiringly beautiful and so dependable that Mosquito Bay in Vieques, also called the Bioluminescent Bay or the Bio Bay, could easily be called the eighth wonder of the world.

The organisms responsible for bioluminescence are called dinoflagellates. They can be found in all waters of the ocean as plankton, tiny organisms that live just below the ocean's surface. They have the ability to move via a whip-like tail, but are so small they travel at the mercy of the winds, waves, currents and tides.

Special characteristics of certain bays throughout the world create conditions in which dinoflagellates will concentrate and flourish. Mosquito Bay in Vieques is a perfect example of such a bay. The mouth of the bay is situated in such a way that the prevailing winds and currents easily allow ocean water to enter the bay. It is also quite shallow at the entrance so that only the surface waters, which are abundant in plankton, flow into the bay. A relatively narrow channel winds into a large shallow mangrove lagoon downwind from the entrance.

Here the bioluminescent organisms will concentrate because they can't get out of the bay. They're too small and not fast enough swimmers to find their way upstream snaking through the channel to return to the open ocean. Nor would they want to, because the conditions in the Bio Bay's mangrove lagoon are just right for them.

The entire bay is encircled by mangroves whose leaves are constantly falling into the water. These rotting leaves provide a perfect diet for the dinoflagellates. Moreover, the salinity of the water is perfectly suitable to the dinoflagellates. It is kept within their narrow tolerance levels because of the presence of lagunas or salt ponds just behind the mangrove lagoon that collect water during periods of high tides and during intense rains and filter the fresh water back slowly afterward.

Another important factor is that there is no significant quebrada or fresh water stream leading into the bio bay that could lower the salinity to undesirable levels. Human contamination from sewage, a factor which has seriously degraded a bioluminescent bay on the Big Island, which was once a rival to Mosquito Bay, is not a problem in Vieques, and hopefully never will be.

Tests have shown that the Bioluminescent Bay in Vieques contains as many as 720,000 bioluminescent organisms per gallon of water. This concentration is so great that if you splash the water you will cause them to emit enough light so that you could read the print on a book in the dead of night.

Dinoflagellates are non-toxic and you can get in the Bio Bay and swim around with them, and your whole body will be encircled by an unbelievable aura of light. If you splash water on your hair it will drip crystals of light like tiny sparkling jewels. If it starts to rain, the whole bay will light up. Truly an amazing experience!"

Notes for those going on the Bio Bay Tour

Wear bathing suit or clothing that you don't mind getting wet. You will be in a sit on top tandem ocean kayak, so you will get a bit wet. Do not wear any mosquito repellent containing DEET as it causes harm to the microorganisms that help the BIobay glow. We will provide mosquito repellent for your needs. Please make sure your alcohol intake is limited, knowing you will be getting in a kayak in a dark lagoon.

Note - You will need shoes that are secured by a strap or they will advise you to go barefoot.

Cameras - Unfortunately there is NO way to capture this tour on camera. So remember to sit back and take it all in. The photos you see are done by a professional.

Welcome to Vieques Island

The Destination

Please us the scroll bar on right to read all of the information contained on this page.

Vieques Island is 55 square miles and has less than 10,000 inhabitants and not many visitors. The beaches are just gorgeous. The Island is about 21 miles long by 5 miles at its widest point and it is located between Puerto Rico and St. Thomas, just 6 miles from the south-east coast of Puerto Rico.

Vieques is politically divided in Barrios, some of them are Isabel II, the capital city, Santa Maria, Monte Santo, Florida, Esperanza, and others. Esperanza has become popular in recent years because of the fishing tradition, the fight against the Navy by the local fishermen, and the boardwalk or malecon. There are restaurants and inns along the malecon across the beach at Esperanza. In 2008, the Town Square (Plaza de Recreo or just Plaza) at Isabel II was remodeled and several exquisite restaurants have opened near the center of town. The beauty of the Plaza and the historical architecture of the buildings on which the restaurants are being opened are making Downtown Isabel II the place to go for a nice night time outing.

The currency is the U.S. dollar, major credit cards are accepted in most establishments. There is an ATM at the local bank in downtown Isabel II and one across the street at the local Coop, another one at La Viequense Panaderia & Deli also in Downtown.

English is spoken by most locals (Spanish is the spoken language of choice although there are two official languages Spanish and English).

Most (if not all) cell phone companies operate on the island. The coverage is weak on the extreme east or west sides of the island because the population is located in the center and that's where the antennas are located too. The signals are weak on the beaches beyond Sun Bay in the south. In my experience AT&T, seems to have the widest coverage in Vieques.

The electrical current is the same as in the U.S., 110-220 volts, 60 Hz. The temperature does not fluctuate outside the 60-90 degrees.

The average temperature has been quoted by different sources to be 79 F (National Climatic Data Center, 1994) or 82 F from November to May with an average beach temperature of 80 F in summer and 76 F in the winter (PR Tourism Company, Feb-Mar 2005). There are constant mild easterly trade winds. Rainy season is from August to November although it seldom rains continuously.

The time is Atlantic Standard Time (AST) all year. Daylight savings time is not observed. This is the same as Eastern Daylight Saving Time from April to October.

The legal age for drinking in Puerto Rico is 18. It is illegal to have an open alcohol container in the car. Seatbelts are required for all passengers and the police are in the lookout for that. Observe posted speed limits, specially around Isabel II.
