Travel & Leisure 2008 Awards
I have to say… I was not surprised to read that our beautiful island “Isla de Vieques” was voted the Best Island in the Caribbean, Bermuda & The Bahamas on the Travel & Leisure 2008 World’s Best Awards.
The great thing about this award is that it was not one or a group of travel journalists making this nomination. Real travelers just like you and me voted on the awards.
The Executive Director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company, Terestella González Denton, said: “This international acknowledgement of the quality tourist destination that Vieques has become is of great benefit to the Isla Nena and all the Puerto Ricans who feel proud of the impressive accomplishments that Vieques has achieved the last few years and of the road we have all been on with her.”
Mayor Dámaso Serrano López expressed great satisfaction at the award. “The people of Vieques feel deeply and emotionally excited, enthusiastic and proud about receiving such an outstanding award. We all have a commitment to make each one of our guests feel that they are truly in paradise”.
