One attraction of Vieques is a small black sand beach.
The beach was quite close to where we were staying.
The sand changes rather abruptly from "sand" colored to black
The walk down to the beach via a wandering canyon was quite interesting.

El Coquí is the national symbol of The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
It's image is everywhere, as is the sound of its call at night.
Actually seeing one is extremely difficult.
I first encountered the coqui in Hawaii where it is an introduced invasive.
