    Florida is pineapple country

    Florida hugs the northern coast in the heart of Puerto Rico's Vieques Island and is known by many names. Some call it "Le Tierra del Rio Encantado" due to the river which passes through it, others refer to it as "Pueblo de la Pina Cayenalisa" because of its rich history of pineapple growing. Either way, when you stay at a Florida vacation rental, you'll have the island's gorgeous white sandy beaches, the spectacular Vieques National Wildlife Refuge and countless opportunities for outdoor adventures just moments from your doorstep.

    Swim with glowing plankton in Florida

    Being an island, most of the activities in Florida and Vieques Island are focused around the water. The surrounding Caribbean Sea provides a natural aquarium of colorful exotic marine life and there is no shortage of operators offering snorkeling and scuba diving day trips. Alternatively, you can hop on rented sea kayaks to glide down the mangrove waterways or saddle up to ride along the equestrian trails. A must-do is Bioluminescent Mosquito Bay where, by night, you can swim with millions of micro-organisms that glow bright blue when disturbed, matching the starry night overhead.

    Florida is tiny but it has a big past

    It might be a tiny island, but don't let that deceive you. Vieques is a treasure trove of historical points of interest and it's all within easy reach of your Florida vacation rental. You can't fail to be impressed by Fortin Conde de Mirasol, the last fort built by the Spanish in the Americas. A fascinating museum brings the fort's history to life. Alternatively, you can visit the restored El Faro de Punta Mulas lighthouse or see the natural history exhibits at The Vieques Conservation & Historical Trust, before stopping by El Malecon for a seafood feast.

    Skip Florida's throngs of vacationers

    Winter is undoubtedly the busiest season on Vieques Island with vacationers escaping the cold weather back home. Though you'll experience glorious weather if you visit between December and February, you'll also have the throngs of crowds to contend with and peak season pricing. If you book up a Florida vacation rental between April and June, you'll skip the crowds and slip in before the humidity and rains of summer hit the island, not to mention enjoying rock-bottom rates. If you time it right, you may very well have the beaches all to yourself.

    Wild horses and nesting turtles in Florida

    It might come as a surprise, but this small island also includes Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, the biggest sanctuary among all the Caribbean islands. Its distinct ecosystem of mangrove and coastal lagoons provide habitats for a ton of species. This magical place is home to wild Paso Fino horses which roam free along the forests and beaches. If you stay in a Florida vacation rental at the right time, you'll be treated to the sight of sea turtles hauling themselves up onto the beach to nest. Later in the year, the young hatch and make their perilous journey back down to the sea.
