Set just seven miles off the east coast of Puerto Rico, Vieques is so undeveloped that it feels like an undiscovered slice of paradise to nearly every visitor who steps off the ferry when they arrive.  There are no major resorts, instead a few paved streets lined with small hotels, rental properties, and shops that keep things going between deliveries of goods from the mainland.  Activities take tourists on a magical journey of underwater habitats, bodies of water that glow in the dark, and historic ruins that are known to take visitor's breaths away.
