Casa Alma Vista is the perfect peaceful Caribbean island getaway. Surrounded by tropical flowers and fruit trees, it overlooks the town of Isabel Segunda and the sea, with magnificent panoramic views and awe-inspiring sunsets. Relax on the patio (plenty of room for alfresco dining) and watch the fishing boats pass, the ferries arrive and depart, the pelicans dive-bombing into the water, and the snowy egrets flapping by. If there are waves, you'll see the local kids out surfing all day from the local beach. Island horses graze along the roads (keep the gates closed or they'll be eating your flowers!). Ginger, hibiscus, heliconia, bougainvillea, bamboo - and hummingbirds and butterflies hovering in your view. There are banana trees, mangos, papayas, and always the warm breezes and the sound of the surf...
According to Forbes Magazine, Vieques has "some of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean". None are crowded and at many you will be the only ones there. If you don't drive to one of the many main beaches, you can walk (4 min) from Alma Vista to a nice cove with a sandy beach and great snorkeling.
In Vieques there are no traffic lights and no casinos, but there are friendly people, good restaurants and gorgeous scenery. Island horses meander along the roads. And Vieques is home to one of the best bioluminescent bays in the world - swimming at night in the glowing water is unforgettable.
