Upcoming Vieques Events

Thursday, June 23


Noche de San Juan

12:00 AM

At midnight the night of June 23 each year, Vieques locals and visitors from the main island of Puerto Rico gather at the pier in Esperanza for the annual celebration of Saint John the Baptist's Birthday (June 24th). Legend has it that if you jump backwards into the water 3 times at midnight, your soul will be cleansed and evil spirits will be warded off in the coming year. Everyone is welcome to join in and it is good fun whether you beleive in the tradition or not!
