Two open air studio casitas with sweeping island and Caribbean views, 60' pool

Vieques has recently been highlighted as one of the Most Romantic Islands in the World (Conde Nast Traveler Magazine) and one of the 6 Caribbean Islands You Can Visit Without A Passport (Caribbean Journal)

Now, about Boulders.......

Finished in Spring of 2014 we decided to share our special place with family, friends and fellow afficionados of the fine but simple things in life. Boulders has two fully self-sufficent studio casitas, each sleeping two people. (prices are PER casita) All rooms are one with the outdoors, allowing tradewinds and ceiling fans to provide all of the ventilation needed. Seven foot overhangs on all openings protect from tropical rainshowers and wide window ledges are the perfect perch for enjoying a conversation, writing in a journal or contemplating the perfect cup of tea while watching the glorious sunrise behind the Caribbean. Tempurpedic beds are enveloped by gauzy mosquito nets, creating an inviting oasis inside. Bathrooms stocked with luxurious towels have outdoor showers with spectacular views so nature can be enjoyed at every opportunity. Each casita has an outdoor space, a comfy sitting area, dining area and small well-stocked kitchen. Fresh produce can be had at a biweekly local farmers market and island shops provide basic groceries for those who love to cook or grill on the Weber gas grill behind the casa. Restaurants of all types abound. The 60 foot pool can be enjoyed for lap swimming or just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful view. And of course, the beaches of Vieques are legendary in their own right. Snorkling highly recommended. Drive slowly; there are many wild horses on the road and at some beaches.

The stunning architecture of Boulders provides the ideal escape from the clutter and clamor of daily life. So if you can live without air conditioning and television, don't mind inquisitive little geckos scampering around, and are looking for an other-worldly experience, let Boulders be your nirvana.

ABOUT VIEQUES

An island apart from an island, Vieques is the ‘Little Sister’ of nearby Puerto Rico. A tiny Caribbean island that’s sparsely populated, unspoiled and undeveloped. Vieques is a rare treasure to find these days when so many other islands are sprouting mega hotels. Vieques was recently named “Best Island in the Caribbean” by a popular travel magazine, but we will let you decide that for yourself! Get out and go! See Vieques and enjoy snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, horseback riding and dozens of cultural and historic locales… Or imagine yourself relaxing on a remote beach, doing nothing at all!

Vieques abounds with things to do- take a stroll on the quiet beachfront boardwalk in Esperanza, ride a bike to a nearby beach… or you might take a walk into the rock strewn hills beyond Boulders. For those looking to explore the island, Vieques has many opportunities. Here's a list to help you plan:

THE VIEQUES BIOLUMINESCENT BAY

Caused by micro-organisms and chemistry, the experience of seeing the mystifying, glowing waters can only be called magical. The World’s best, most well-preserved Bioluminescent bay is here in Vieques. It is not to be missed!

SNORKELING AND SCUBA DIVING

The endless Vieques coasts have entire worlds below the waves. You can find gorgeous, world-class coral reefs all around the island. Go snorkeling along the shores, or plan a Scuba trip and take a boat dive.

KAYAKS AND SUP

For the adventurous, single or double ocean kayaks, as well as stand up paddle boards, can also be rented

BEACH TOURING

With so many gorgeous and easily-accessible beaches, the trouble is choosing which ones to visit! Take your rental vehicle to the most distant, and go beach hopping, or let a local point out their personal favorites.

HORSEBACK RIDING

You will see plenty of horses, wild and kept, during your stay on Vieques. Why not ride one? Tour throughout Vieques and across long beaches on horseback.

HISTORIC LOCATIONS

You can find history all around Vieques; a late Spanish Fort in our capital Isabel Segunda, now a museum, tour Navy relics, explore plantation ruins and see ancient Taino villages. There is a rich history to the island that you can uncover. Right in the middle of Esperanza you'll find the Vieques Conservation and Historic Trust, a small museum featuring local historic relics, art exhibits, and plenty of information about the fascinating ecosystem of the island. Here you can also book a tour of the ruins of the sugar mill on the southwest end of Vieques. The gift shop offers a variety of books with a decidedly local flavor.

DINING

‘Fine dining’ might mean localy caught lobsters and fish under candle light or eating finger foods along the beach. Vieques has an up-and-coming restaurant scene with food by creative gourmet chefs and authentic Caribbean cooks. It is to your taste where you dine in Vieques.

SHOPPING

Get appareled like an islander at a small number of casual-elegant boutiques*. Update your beachwear or get outfitted for your aquatic adventures at small shops. Pick up local handworks (the best souvenirs) at boardwalk kiosks. All this, along the Esperanza Malecón! And more in the town of Isabel Segunda.

Enjoy scenic walks just above Boulders in the hills of La Llave, through boulder-strewn fields of grazing cattle or hike the cattle paths down to Esperanza. The village of Esperanza offers numerous restaurant options, lively beach bars and simple shops, right on the beach. Walk from there to the sweeping beaches of Sun Bay. You'll need a car to reach the many other varied and mostly secluded beaches on the island---yours to discover! For history buffs there are tours of the sugar plantation ruins and the well-camouflaged military bunkers on the west end of the island. Be sure to visit the Vieques Conservation and Historical Trust on the Malecon in Esperanza. Esperanza Riding Company offers scenic trail rides, including beaches, on safe and well-cared for horses. A visit to Bioluminescent Bay is a must---book that on the night which has the smallest or no moon for the best luminescent experience. Restaurants galore offer something for everyone. For those who choose to use their complete kitchen facilities to eat in Morales on the 200 is the best grocery shopping destination. Fruits and veg are available at the farmers market on Tuesdays and Fridays on 201 just before its intersection with 200.
