Property MapWelcome to the finca! Vieques’ most beautiful rustic getaway. Our towels don’t match, and even without AC, we’re known as the coolest place, with the coolest guests on the island. The finca is a unique cluster of handmade houses, from small casitas to our large groups, families, friends, couples and solo eco-travelers, folks who like it quiet; to travel off the beaten path.

“finca” is Spanish for a place in the country. We’re not a hotel, or even a b&b. la finca is our family’s own private retreat we love to share with like-minded eco travelers. After a day of exploring Vieques’ spectacular beaches, our guests can relax on a deck, listen to the frogs, and meet fellow travelers from around the world. It’s the relaxed and off-beat atmosphere of la finca that keeps our guests coming back year after year.

We’re proud that our guests are a healthy mix of repeat visitors, and new friends from all over the planet. We appreciate the diversity of our guests. We’re family-friendly, gay-friendly, eco-friendly; hopefully just friendly. We’re dedicated to offering a fun vacation, in a casual atmosphere as sustainably, with as minimal a carbon footprint as possible.

We have one of the islands’ best loved eclectic book libraries and a bunch of board games and sometimes an old guitar. In addition to the pool, the finca offers a place for yoga or bocce ball, Frisbee, or just running, or walking in Pilon, (our barrio here in the hills, three miles out of Esperanza). We can help you with snorkeling, diving and sailing charters, on-site massage, kayaking, and tours of our outstanding bio bay.

Like most everywhere it seems, Vieques has changed a bit over the past almost 20 years, a bit more trendy now than we ever expected. Have no fear! The finca remains a stalwart rebel; vigilant and true to the islands’ and our own funky, off-beat roots. For us, being in the Caribbean is about escaping, at least taking a break from, pretensions and consumerism. Here you, your family, friends or whole group get to hang out however you’re most comfortable.
