We move so fast in today’s society, we have to consciously relax and say, “This is my time.” For us, vacations are a necessity. We recently stayed at Cima del Mundo Vacation Suites on the beautiful island of Vieques, Puerto Rico. We went for walks on the beach, caught up on our reading and spent hours on the balcony watching the gorgeous sunsets . When we stay in hotels we end up doing a lot, but we come home exhausted and don’t want to go back to work. At Cima del Mundo we were able to take time to smell the roses. We came home refreshed and hope to be returning every year. We miss you Deborah and your fantastic little paradise! Hope to see you again real soon!

Cima del  Mundo – Si, Si, Si

 

We wanted to cut loose the shackles of our quotidian routine but not stray too far from the creature comforts … and ‘Cima’ was the place to do it! On an island off an island, Cima offers spectacular Caribbean views, soothing mountaintop breezes and a respite from the noise and nuisances of urban America – whether North, Central or South.  The accommodations were cozy and well-appointed, the hosts were gracious and gregarious, with pristine beaches and world-class dining only a short drive away.  We look forward to returning for the upcoming holidays …

Cima del Mundo

The best getaway!

Yes, you most certainly are en Cima del Mundo (on top of the world) ! It was the perfect week. Upon arriving, we were picked up at the airport by our wonderful hostess and taken to pick up our rental jeep and then visited a local Spanish style pub on the water for drinks and the best Cuban style sandwiches.  We then left for our mountain top destination. When we woke, we had coffee on the veranda overlooking blue skies, crystal blue water,  and a beautiful view of the neighboring islands in the warm Caribbean breeze… instant nirvana !

Deborah, our hostess and owner, was incredible… pleasant, informative, humorous… she truly cared and ensured we had a wonderful time the entire time we were on the island.  The property is immaculate, invitingly decorated… where Europe meets the Caribbean. You feel at home right away!

About the size of Nantucket – except with mountains, palm trees, and beautiful beaches with crystal blue water and 80 degrees in the winter! Everything is within a short drive.  I am not one for basking in the sun all day so I was a bit concerned about things to do on the island.  There was plenty to do and here are some “must does”, horse back riding along the beaches, touring the Biobay, pictures at the 300 year old Ceiba tree, walk with the wild horses, off and on road drives along the water, lunch at “Sol Food” on the way to the beaches and make sure you have a brownie for dessert, and more!  Ending each day at ‘Cima del Mundo’ overlooking the Caribbean over conversation and cocktails is the true definition of relaxation.  I can’t wait until the next visit.

Easy to get to using Cape Air or Vieques Airlink, Deborah has created an affordable Caribbean getaway that can be “customized” for any group, couple, or individual.   She truly made our trip one to remember.  We have already planned our return!

If you are looking for a vacation getaway in paradise, then look no further than Cima del Mundo Vacation Suites located in Vieques, Puerto Rico.  The English translation of Cima del Mundo is “Top of the World”, and that’s exactly how my friend and I felt when we stayed at this beautiful guest house.  The house is built high into the side of a mountain, offering breathtaking views, both near and far. Not to be outdone, the accommodations are as inspiring as the views and complete the aura of being on top of the world in paradise!  The suites are decorated with an island-flair, and are as comfortable as they are clean.

The owners of Cima del Mundo are very familiar with the Island and with the language, and they were more than willing to share the location of their favorite beaches, restaurants and shops.  Clearly, the O’Keeffe’s wanted us to love their Island paradise as much as they do and it seems they thought of everything to make us feel comfortable and welcomed.  Staying at Cima del Mundo Vacation Suites was like being at home in Paradise; and I anxiously look forward to my next visit.

From the moment I arrived in Vieques, PR, I was met with smiles, welcomes and an island full of magic. My arrival to Cima del Mundo Vacation Suites was no different. The views from the hill top will mesmerize you with the colors and sounds of island life. It is like having your own little perch above paradise. The suites are impeccably clean, beautifully furnished and accommodate everything you could want for your island adventure. The experience leaves me wondering how one can just stay and never leave.

After a very long trip through a raging northeast blizzard – we arrived in the most wonderful place with the most gracious hostess. It was late when we arrived in VQS, after a short trip from the airport we arrived at CIMA – we fell into comfortable beds in a lovely apartment and awoke to breathtaking views of the bluest water, downtown Isabelle II, Puerto Rico and Culebra – WOW!!!

 

We had our coffee every morning floating over the tree tops!

Cima del Mundo is such a warm and wonderful place. We were staying on top of the world, it was so peaceful and relaxing, yet it was just a short drive to beautiful beaches, restaurants and all the island had to offer. It truly is a magical place. We have already begun the countdown to our return!”

We just want to thank you for making our time in Vieques such a memorable experience. What a spectacular way to spend our holidays.
We can not stop raving to  family and friends about our wonderful stay at Cima del Mundo! Your beautiful hilltop property is matched only by your kind and gracious personality.
We truly felt as though we owned our very own island getaway. The location of your property is simply the best! It is close to everything we wanted to experience and yet when we returned we felt like we were alone, on top of the world.
“Thank you also for all of your ‘islander’s recommendations’. Everything you suggested, from restaurants and activities, to beaches and things to see and do were all spot on!We can not wait to return!

My husband Rob and I stayed at Cima del Mundo in July for our honeymoon. The view of Vieques from the balcony is spectacular. The modern design of the home sets the tone of relaxation. We appreciated the warm hospitality we received from the owners during our stay. We loved our vacation at Cima del Mundo so much that we have recommended the home to friends and family.”

I happen to find Cima del Mundo business card after a year been given to me when it was under construction, at the very right moment to take a vacation. Me and my husband visit Vieques during summer 2011 and had the best time ever. Deborah (owner) treated us as if we were old friends and make sure we had everything we need and more.  The apartment had an spectacular view so we decided to have breakfast every morning in the balcony. Beautiful bedroom,bathroom, neat and clean. Very private and cozy. Kitchen had all you need. Vieques is an amazing island and Cima del Mundo is the best place to stay!!! There was a reason I still had that card with me. Destiny!! Can wait to return.

Encontré en mi cartera (luego de un año) una tarjeta que me habían dado de Cima del Mundo cuando aún estaba en construcción, justo cuando iba a coger vacaciones. Mi esposo y yo visitamos Vieques durante el verano y la pasamos super!!. La dueña Deborah, nos trató como si nos conociera de hace mucho tiempo y se aseguro que tuviéramos lo que necesitábamos y aún más. El apartamento tiene una vista espectacular así que desayunábamos en el balcón todas las mañanas. El baño y el cuarto están preciosos e inmaculados. Es privado y a la vez acogedor. La cocina tiene todo lo que necesitas. Vieques es una isla hermosa y Cima del Mundo es el mejor lugar para quedarse. Existía una razón por la cual aún conservaba esa tarjeta. Era nuestro destino!!! Estamos locos por volver.
