Inexpensive eats right in the neighborhood of Casita Rosita: Banana's - great every day restaurant, my go to spot. Duffy's – large mircobrew selection, only on the island, great nightlife El Guyacon - live music, poetry slams, the young, hip Americano and Puerto Ricans hang out here. Fresh fish and more.

Walk around the rocks to your right and get to a wide open coconut grove lined beach. Or walk to the Malecon down steps to the sea, or step to the sand all along Esperanza Bay, or walk the sand to the huge long beach of SunBay State Park. U.S. Fish & Wildlife Refuge beaches are not to be missed, for the diversity of settings, beach entrances, most make you feel you own the place. See the island maps in the house and distributed everywhere. Snorkeling from shore by Casita Rosita: The beach just down from our house has good snorkeling that continues along the high cliff and a short ways the other direction. Snorkel also on the west side of the little island you can see from shore—it's a 15 minutes swim out. SunBay State Park: Just around the corner from Casita Rosita at the edge of the Esperanza neighborhood, the SunBay State park can be walked to along the coast, or driven to. This is a very long beach with a view to an island and an isthmus. Easy beach entrance, park casually just across teh sandy road from where ever you want to set up. Access to bathrooms, snackbar. Swim area is roped off. Other Refuge Beaches: On the southwestern side of Vieques includes Playa Grande–great for walking and listening to a loud ocean; and Playa Negra–a reak walk in. On the northern side, there are many beaches. These are all on the Atlantic. WILDLIFE: Four species of sea turtles live in the waters of Vieques and nest on its shores, sometimes you can see them when snorkeling. Birds and frogs sing in this tropical ecosystem. Egrets stand on the backs of horses. Vieques feels out of time. The main streets are newly paved and wild horses roam them & the beachesMore

About the neighbourhood
Esperanza is the most accessible neighborhood on the island of Vieques. Bakery and market four doors away. Four doors the other direction is the coastal road. A block away is the Malecon--our mainstreet with 8 restaurants, boutiques, nightlife, microbrews, beaches, incredible spots for watching the sun set. Bio bay tours, recreation rental all right here. Shop, hit the museum, right here. Promenade along the Caribbean Sea right here. Jump from the piers right here. Go horseback riding right here. Park in front of our house. Great block, good neighbors who keep an eye on each other. Don't need a car to get around. Not everyone has to do the same thing. Catch a shared taxi, called a public from the main drag or call one to pick you up.
How to get there
Tell your driver you are going to the Esperanza neighborhood, then give the street Tintillos, then the number 306. Viequenses handle their addresses somewhat opposite of Norteamericanoes. if you are renting a car, see if they will pick you up at the ferry or airport. Renters all have a free tourist maps that si quite good and we all use. They can point you to Esperanza on the map. You will learn there are many intersections without street signs, but Tintillos has a street sign from the coastal road. And all the route have numbers posted at intersections. These basics will serve you well.
