Playa Gallito

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Playa Gallito

This north coast, white sand beach, Playa Gallito, has very good snorkeling.  We swam out from the middle of the beach and the reef seemed to go on forever, perpendicular from the beach.  I saw parrot fish, angel fish, and so many more types of fish, as well as many types of coral. Playa Gallito means Rooster Beach.  It is a pretty beach located just east of the airport, next to the W-Hotel.  There is a small parking lot.  Often there is no one on this beach.  It is a good alternative to our famous south coast beaches.

Snorkeling at Playa Plata

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Snorkeling at Playa Plata
The snorkeling at Playa Plata (Orchid beach) yesterday was spectacular. The ocean had calmed down and cleared up to provide us a really great view of the pretty coral and colorful fish. Definitely one of the best reefs which are easily accessible from the shore. Playa Plata is the last beach (on the east) in the Fish and Wildlife Refuge.

Vieques Paddleboarding

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Vieques Paddleboarding

Vieques Paddleboarding invited about a dozen people who work in tourism to experience this new sport they are offering in Vieques. On December 6th, we paddled through the mangroves of Puerto Ferro Bay and then paddled to the mouth of the bay to snorkel.  The mangroves were so beautiful and peaceful and the snorkeling was definitely some of the best I have done in Vieques.  Thanks so much to Jorge and Aura, our guides.

Tofer who participated in the tour described his experience: “I am continuously amazed by the beauty of Vieques.  I am most excited to learn that Vieques Paddleboarding’ s three-hour tour includes an intimate experience in the mangroves.  Not enough of our VQS visitors make it to this magical place.  This uniquely Vieques adventure made for a day to remember.”

They offer two tours to Puerto Ferro each day: 9:00 am to 12 PM  and     2:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
