Hotels in Vieques

Hotels in Vieques run the gamut from big international chains to world-class resorts to small, independently run haciendas. For the purposes of this guide, we’ll focus on hotels you can book online, with the caveat that if you’re a traveler on a budget - one who values saving a buck over having dependable hot water, for example - it may be worth it to look off the beaten path.
