Our Stay in ‘Casa de Vieques’

We’ve been planning to go back to Puerto Rico since we got news that G would have to extend our stay in Japan for his new job! We hadn’t been back in almost 3 years, since we flew back a few months after moving to Okinawa for our wedding! One of the things I wanted to do was a little getaway with our close families. First we made plans to go on a cruise but it didn’t really work for everybody, so we decided to do a short visit to Vieques Island, one of the small islands on the east side of Puerto Rico. Most of us had never been and our close family agreed to come with (except one of my brothers who bailed on us last minute *ugh*).

Before sharing our adventures I thought it be fun to post about where we stayed. I booked Casa de Vieques through AirBnb and it was a winner! It accommodates 12 people, it’s super family friendly (we were 10 adults and 2 kids so perfect!), it has a pool (only one of the kids used it because it was freezing), and it came with a car! The van was a hilarious piece of junk (HA!) but man did we have some good laughs while driving that car.


^^ Vieques is known for it’s wild horses and we were greeted by a couple of them every morning! ^^casa-de-vieques3
