Ababor Suites at Playa Bastimento


Note about hurricane Maria

As you know, Vieques was hit hard by hurricane Maria and the island is still in recovery mode. Many restaurants, car rentals, beaches and biobay tours are opened already and more are coming. At Ababor Suites we are running with a backup generator to the Municipal power plant, solar water heater and backup water tank (although we did not loose water service due to proximity to municipial water reservoir and our location near beach level), we have satellite tv but not internet or phone land lines as of Dec 14, 2017. We do have wifi available in the island from sources in Isabel and Esperanza.

Many or you have contacted us with supporting thoughts, prayers and donations. Thank you, from the core of our hearts. Please support us even more by coming back to the people and the beaches you have loved before. We are open for business on January 2, 2018.


Beachfront Cottage

Welcome to Ababor Suites, self-catering apartment rentals located directly in front of Playa Bastimento in Vieques Island. There are two one-bedroom apartments and a three bedroom apartment in the same building. The apartments are blessed with a sandy, shallow and protected beach that extends undeveloped at both sides of Ababor Suites. Next to us is the Fish and Wildlife Natural Reserve. The suites are a retreat into your Caribbean beachfront escape. Your quiet beach exploration vacation is waiting for you at Bastimento's sandy and protected beach. 

Listen to the waves or the sounds of the palm or bamboo trees swaying with the wind. Rest on the hammock on your private balcony or in the gazebo. Watch the waves or the local fishing boats go by. Observe the wild horses pass by. Unwind on your beach chair while the tropical waters bathe your feet. Explore in the provided kayaks or floating boards. At night, enjoy watching as many stars as you have probably never seen before.

Bastimento Beach

The Suites are located near Downtown Isabel II, just 5 minutes drive from the harbor at Punta Mulas, the historical museum at Fort Conde de Mirasol, many fine restaurants, small grocery stores and a supermarket. Far enough for solitude and close enough for convenience.





There are many rentals in Vieques with ocean views, some are ocean front, but only very few are actually beachfront like Ababor Suites is.

FREE Kayaking at Ababor Suites



Early morning at Ababor Suites  

The beach at Ababor is perfect for relaxation and exploration. It is a shallow natural wading pool with a line of reef outside that extends for half a mile or more. Expert snorkelers and novice snorkelers will love it here. There is a half hour walk of undeveloped beaches waiting for you to explore. Then there is the natural reserve of Fish and Wildlife.

The name comes from the Spanish phrase "a babor". "A babor" is what a captain would say commanding his sailor to go to the port (left) side of the ship.



Enjoy free use of kayaks and wifi.
