Vieques is a small island off the coast of Puerto Rico, known for its bioluminescent bay, free-roaming horses and beautiful beaches. There is not a single traffic light on the island and life runs at a different pace on island time. In the middle of the island, is one of the most tranquil and serene properties that I have ever visited – Finca Victoria.
Watch my full experience at Finca Victoria and read what makes this place so special below:
– “Farmhouse meets Beach House meets Treehouse” –
This is how “Coastal Living” magazine described Finca Victoria in their round-up of The Most Stylish Beach Hotels of 2020. And stylish it is, all 6 or so treehouses located on sprawling tree-filled property, feature the best traits of modern tiny-houses. There are no TVs in the rooms but there are mosquito nets sprawled above the bed, a diffuser filling the air with the most relaxing blend of essential oils and a hammock swinging on a tree-shaded private patio. You have come to Finca Victoria to fully unplug (spotty Wi-Fi only enhances the immersion) and be transported to a dimension different from the humdrum of everyday life.
Inside our private suite, sustainable wood meets metal, meets organic cotton and graphic wallpaper. Vintage furniture and objects of interest like mirrors and artwork from Puerto Rican artists add to the rustic and streamlined decor. Outdoor shower and bathroom, accessible from within the room and covered by clear roofing panels add to the outdoors-meet-indoors sustainable feel of the place.

– Yoga in the Morning followed by a Vegan breakfast –
The property itself is connected by a communal space that serves as a Front Desk, Gift Shop, Kitchen and Work Space that turns into a Dining Hall during a complimentary vegan breakfast every morning cooked up by Chef Dossantos. Also in the mornings, make sure to attend daily Yoga sessions on the deck surrounding the pool. Added to the mix are Ayurvedic massages, scrubs, and herbal baths all performed at Casa Botánica located on-site and you have unlocked a full tranquility package that separates Finca Victoria from all other places. Finish the day by plunging in the pool, watch the sunset from the balcony and get the best night’s sleep listening to the sounds of nature that envelop everything around you.
