Just sayin'... As far as beach bars go, this town's one-street scene is all bananas. After my trip, I called one of my awesome friends from college (go Providence!) who has frequented Vieques for work (lucky her), and when I told her how shocked I...
Bahía Bioluminiscente, Puerto Rico
This was the experience of a lifetime. We were fortunate to be there on the required dark night with no moon. We used see-through canoes to paddle to the middle of this inlet off the Caribbean at midnight. All wildlife in the very clear water was...

Believe it or not, there's a lot to learn on a Caribbean island! Here we learned how many native tribes had settled here, we saw artifacts, and we went into a blacklight room dedicated to the bio bay. We met a summer intern from UMass who...

The first place we went after grabbing our motorini was to check out the famous 375-year-old Ceiba tree located in a somewhat remote area. The Ceiba tree is off a main road, naturally besides a beach. I was surprised at all the information written...

The Isla Nena Cafe was a surprise we found just a little too late...and we didn't even actually find it, we were basically told to wait there for our flight. After checking our bags inside, the Vieques airport personnel told us we could wait at...
