In September 2017, Hurricane Irma caused extensive damage across the island. Many places closed for rebuilding. Frommer's recommends that vacationers check in advance with all businesses before traveling.

The Isla de Cabras scene is an exceedingly local affair, and weekend afternoons are extremely lively, with many establishments hosting live bands or karaoke. Many seafood joints line the main road into Isla de Cabras, but this is our choice for its super-fresh fish and its way with such Puerto Rican classics as mofongo and asopao (we also appreciate the tasty sangria, though be careful, as it does have a kick). You can enjoy a meal on an oceanfront terrace, but you’ll get wet if the seas or the skies are stormy (when that’s the case head inside to the big, comfortable bar and dining room). El Vigla is a favorite spot for weddings and other celebrations.
