Overview of Fort Conde de Mirasol Museum

Constructed between 1845-1855 on a hill overlooking Isabel II, this fort was built with the intention to protect the port. It originally housed the Spanish militia, who would guard the island of Vieques against invading countries and pirates. However, it was never used in defense of Vieques. It served as a jail for both the Spanish and later for the US. It was abandoned in the 1940s and fell into disrepair. Today, the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture manages the fort and has completed a restoration of the building and the surrounding grounds. Now, the building is used in an educational capacity. Open Wed-Sun 10am - 4pm

"We didn't have much desire to see this during our first trip, but I'm glad we did go through it the 2nd trip. The view from the top is outstanding. You can see all across the island, and over to the mainland. The guns on the walls are cool, along with the detail that went into building the wall."

Kian R. wrote about Whale Submarine:

"The Whale submarine was a great alternative for us as non-divers who wanted to go beyond snorkelling. It offers a boat transfer from the jetty in Male straight to its platform and fits around 50 people. The downside: Located in close proximity to Male's harbour, a lot of boat traffic occurs around the site and making it obviously not to have as much sea-life as we expected. The plus: driving in a submarine is already an experience in itself. The windows are big enough to capture fishes and corals from different angels.
