V.H., as it is normally referred to by locals on the island, is a small, quiet settlement. It sits at the northern end of San Salvador, following the settlement of Bonefish Bay, and is about three miles north of the San Salvador International Airport and Club Med. Almost all of the homes in this settlement are located on hills.

If you are in search of palm trees or palm hearts, this is the place to go. Here, you will also find the best maker of potato bread and cassava bread — "Grammy Ruth" from Ruthie's Kitchen — so don't leave V.H. until you try it.

Descendants are the Arnettes.
