A pretty photo of Esperanza bay taken from our boardwalk, known as the “Malecon”.

View towards west from Malecon, Vieques, P.R.

Photo taken by my guest Bill Guarente, who is having is first vacation in the Caribbean.  The Malecon is the oceanfront strip in Esperanza where you will find restaurants, shops, bio-bay pick-ups, food vendors and the Vieques Historical and Historical Trust museum and nature exhibits.   The Maelcon was recently updated and has some of the best ocean views in Vieques, especially at sunset.  The Malecon is a 5-7 minute walk from Casa de Kathy.  See the map on the home page.

Papaya-banana smoothie in Kathy's backyard


Today I prepared a smoothie with ripe papayas and bananas.  Of course, I added some honey, mint and vanilla to make it extra special and oh, how yummie it was. I got the fruit at the Placita Reyes market.  This open air market can be found Tuesdays and Wednesdays near the intersection of Routes 200 and 201.

Restaurant Al Fogón

Fresh fried fish

I would like to spread the word about Al Fogón, a great new restaurant just outside of Isabel II in Vieques.  Last night I dined there and ate a delicious fried fish with perfectly seasoned rice and beans and tostones (fried plaintains).  Al Fogón is located in the building that used house the restaurant Topacio.  It is not far from the town plaza: just head towards Santa Maria and it is on the left after the first small bridge.  The owners are Hilcia Guadalupe and Yabureibo Zenon – a young couple well-known for leading many good causes in Vieques.  Now they turn their efforts to the “good cause” of providing culinary delights to residents and tourists of Vieques.  Oh – did I say?…the prices are very reasonable.
