Highs & Lows

  • Finca Victoria is located in the jungle on the small island of Vieques, just a 30min airplane or boat ride from Puerto Rico's main island. The location makes it feel like a true adventure and the island features unlimited access to beautiful quiet beaches.

  • Finca Victoria offers a number of traditional hotel suites and tree houses which we opted for. Essentially these tiny homes set within the jungle offer an authentic tree house experience. With outdoor showers, hammocks, patio area and terraces there's plenty of room for a couple.

  • Complimentary poolside yoga each morning (we were lucky enough to have the owner of Finca Victoria, Sylvia, lead our class - and it was one of the best classes I have ever taken) which is also followed by complimentary breakfast. The chefs create ayurvedic dishes and we tried a number of dishes that were new to us. A delicious and healthy way to kick off the day!
