Isla de Vieques is one of the Spanish Virgin Islands of Puerto Rico, we prefer to call it one of the “Puerto Rico Jewels”. Residents like to kindly call the island “Isla Nena” which means “Little Girl Island”.
For 62 years only about the middle quarter of the island was open for use by Viequenses. The eastern and western three quarters of the island were U.S. Navy Property, which was used for training practices. After years of protests, in May of 2003, the Navy departed. The residents of Vieques, Puerto Rico, finally were given back the chance to enjoy their island in peace.
The residents of Vieques are now celebrating the new freedom of enjoying this beautiful home in peace and quiet. Viequenses, along with the rest of the world can now re-discover the beauty and peacefulness of this little island of great beauty.
