Overview of Rompeolas Mosquito Pier

Mosquito Pier is a wide earth pier that extends over 1 mile into Vieques Sound. It was constructed during 1941 as part of the US Navy's plan to join Vieques and Puerto Rico with a breakwater to create an enormous naval harbor.Construction began in early 1941 and proceeded at the rapid pace of several meters a day. The plan was abandoned following the attack on Pearl Harbor and the United States' entrance into World War II.

Today, Mosquito Pier is used as a landing for cargo ferries and for leisure activities. Visitors can travel the length of the pier to enjoy stunning views of Vieques and the Puerto Rico mainland. It is a popular fishing ground, and Scuba enthusiasts enjoy diving in the clear, calm waters. Starfish and sea turtles are commonly seen here. It is located about one mile west of the Vieques Airport.

Vera H. wrote about Boiling Lake:

"This is rated as a difficult/strenuous hike. It's about 7 hours round trip. There are a lot of steep steps going up & down. I consider myself to be mildly in shape. My quads were definitely burning going up the steps & my knees grumbled going down the steps. I was able to make the entire hike but I did have to stop a couple times to rest & catch my breath. It also rained during our hike which made the steps muddy & slippery. I slipped on the hike back & tweaked my wrists, so be careful! There was one person in our group that had to stop before they got to the Boiling Lake, their legs started cramping up. But we saw a bunch of younger kids just running up the steep steps and they didn't even look tired. Definitely take a guide with you on this one. Our guide showed us where to get the sulphur mud to put on our faces & arms like a mud-mask. He even boiled us some eggs in the hot pools! Also, take a couple changes of clothes (rain jacket, long sleeve shirt, bathing suit & a towel). It was VERY windy in some spots & after it rained on us, it didn't feel good to be cold & wet. But we did get to soak in the warm pools on the way down, it warmed us up & got us relaxed. Made it hard to continue on the hike, haha. I only recommend going if you are in decent shape & not afraid of heights.
