What can I say about the Isla of Culebra but its one of the most beautiful places in the world and you should go!
You can catch a ferry to Culebra from Fajardo for two dollars each way that will take 1.5 hours per trip. There are about 3 ferries a day and hours differ between weekends and weekdays. The consensus was that you are not able to purchase tickets ahead of time and need to come at least two hours prior to purchase tickets.
We were short on time and didn’t mind spending a little extra dough so we flew to Culebra from Fajardo. It was 44 a person and took ten minutes. Go to the airport to receive the 44$ price if you purchase a ticket at the ferry terminal it will be double this amount.
We rented a Jeep from the airport terminal in Culebra for around $40 a day ( they gave us a discount for flying) If I did it again I would get the Jeep because the beaches and town can be a bit far from one another not that safe of a walk.. we did a bit of walking but the streets didn’t have sidewalks! There is camping at Flamenco Beach which is about 2 miles from town. I definitely recommend staying at the beach. It would be easy enough to sleep in the Jeep or on the beach itself! The island is very safe.
First stop, the beach! Flamenco Beach to be exact. If you forget to bring your drinks and snacks to Flamenco Beach do not fear! There are numerous little restaurant / bars around the parking lot.
I enjoyed Puerto Rico more than I ever thought I would. If you have the opportunity to go you should not hesitate. There is so much adventure to be had – mountains, waterfalls, caves, some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and oh the food and drinks!
