Open Air Vegetable Market – Placita Reyes

Part of the charm on Vieques is how we piece together what we need for consumption and it is not always the same from one day to the next.

The Vieques open air vegetable market is a group of farmers who come from Puerto Rico on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to sell their fruits and veggies.  Locals and ex Pats as well as restaurant owners line up early to get the best choices.

This is a great place to look for fruits and vegetables to stock your house for the week.

The market is set up on Road 201 just as you turn off of 200 and directly across from Weddings in Vieques.

Supermercado Morales

Supermercado Morales is the largest grocery store on Vieques island and offers many items that you see in a small town market such as peanut butter, chips, bread, milk and the basics.

One important note of interest is that fresh vegetables and dairy products come over from Puerto Rico early in the morning on Wednesdays so you will have a good selection beginning on Wednesday and waning toward the weekend.

You can also purchase beer, wine and liquor as well as sodas and water by the bottle.

Another point of interest is that there are two Morales Supermercados and you can see this is the larger one of the two with the easiest access and parking. See the map for the central location of Road 200.

Come for a daysail on the only wooden sailboat in Vieques.

Shalamar is a living piece of history, and a one of a kind treasure. Designed by Philip Rhodes, built in 1941, her lines are in the Mystic Seaport Museum.

Your day begins on the still and clear south side waters as you are met onshore by Captain Sebastian who ferries you out to climb aboard the 47 foot beauty. Once aboard and settled into her roomy and comfortable cockpit, you will be offered an ice cold beverage. Whether a tropical rum punch, chilled white wine or a local beer, your day begins in comfort.

As you sail away from shore, the 60 ft sail is hoisted and as it fills with the gentle trade winds, the view of the unspoiled shoreline is revealed.

You will have have a chance to stand at her wheel and guide her through the waves, stand up in the bowsprit and watch for our friendly dolphin pod, whales, tortugas and even manatees; or stretch out on her decks and soak in the sun.

After a sail through through the changing colors of the changing depths, you are taken to a peaceful cove where you can enjoy a leisure swim in the warm turquoise waters or enjoy a snorkel along the shore, lounge on comfortable cushions or just float with a noodle and a beer in hand. Everything is provided for you from towels to water toys, sunblock and water. Bring your favorite tunes and we can play your personal sound track to your sailing adventure.

A fresh lunch is prepared in the galley to be served when you re-join the crew on board. A tropical menu accompanied by a glass of wine or ice cold beer is best enjoyed while drip drying on board the beautiful yacht.
