A balmy sunset and Christmas lights frame Esperanza’s Malecon. Esperanza (meaning Hope) is the smaller of two settlements on the island of Vieques, located approximately 8 miles east of the Puerto Rican mainland. Esperanza was once an important part of the island’s sugar industry which declined during the early decades of the twentieth century, and finally collapsed in the 1940s when the US Navy took over much of the island’s land to develop a bombing range.
