Culebra Things to Do

  • Birding

    Parts of Culebra and most of the offshore islets are part of the Caribbean Islands National Wildlife Refuge. During the breeding season, these protected areas play host to more than 50,000 breeding pairs of seabirds, including Red-billed Tropicbird, Masked and Red-footed Boobies, and Bridled and Sooty Terns. Unfortunately, my visit was outside the...

  • Snorkeling at Playa Carlos Rosario

    A fifteen or so minute walk from Playa Flamenco, Playa Carlos Rosario is often billed as Puerto Rico’s finest snorkeling site. If that is the case, it doesn’t say much for snorkeling in Puerto Rican waters. The coral is in fairly decent shape, but the area seems to have been largely fished out. The best snorkeling is actually a quarter mile or so...

  • Playa Flamenco

    Culebra’s main claim to fame is Playa Flamenco (Flamenco Beach), which is hyped as being Puerto Rico’s top beach and one of the best beaches in the Caribbean and the world. It was without question the top beach in Puerto Rico that I visited, and it compares favorably to many other top Caribbean beaches I have visited. But, as nice as it is (and it...

  • Some of the most beautiful beaches in...

    Culebra has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. This small, funny island has some of the most untouched beaches in the western hemisphere. Most are free of charge and provide umbrellas (for a small fee). Take a shared taxi to one of Culebra's numerous beaches and do so some snorkling or simply enjoy a few beers while relaxing on these...

  • Dewey

    Dewey, named after Admiral Dewey of, what else, the US Navy. We went there to have lunch. Dewey is nothing more than a collection of houses with some bars. The docks are a short walking distance away. The place is dead in the afternoons and sees some action at night. We walked around Dewey, talking to some of the local people. The locals are the...

  • Hike to Carlos Rosario beach

    We trekked along a trail to the other side of the island. It is like searching for Easter eggs: you walk through the dense vegetation and suddenly there is a beach. You walk some more, and look, one more beautiful beach, this time with corals a few meters away. Every once in a while you will find some other backpacker discovering the island the...

  • Flamenco beach

    We walked on the white sands of the beach, appreciating the green water and eyeing the corals that were within swimming distance. Soon we came across a couple of rusty battle-tanks on the beach. Apparently, these were the targets that were to be destroyed when the Navy conducted its exercises. Certain parts of the island are still cordoned off with...

  • Scooters in Culebra

    I took a scooter from the Culebra airport to Flamingo beach, then throuh the town and on to Zoni. One ofthe best days I have ever had in terms of exploring. You can see so much! A bike would have been way to hard. My favorite is Zoni. It takes a little while to get to, but is sooooo worth it once you have arrived. There were about 4 or 5 people on...

  • Flamenco Beach 2

    I love how this is not taken from standing inside a building looking at the water. That is what I look for in a beach, buildingless, I want greenery to buffer the beach. This creates a more further away feeling that I yearn for on a beach. I don't need ice cream cones, ferris wheels and funnel cake. I need water, velvety sand and palm trees.

  • Flamenco Beach 1

    People remind you along with all the travel books that this is the 2nd best beach in the world. Suppossedly Travel and Leisure claims this along with other mags. I want to know where is the first best. Why does this place have to settle for losing? This semi-title forces the people to come in droves. The Publicos only make it here, its there to and...

  • Moped the road to Playa Zoni

    For 40 dollars a day split by 2 it's well worth the price if you are rewarded picturesque vistas like this that one will not get with Publico access only. There is so much more to Culebra than the road between Dewey and Flamenco Beach. Explore a bit you lazy blob.

  • Mangroves

    Driving out on the sole road that directs to Playa Zoni the bay will zig zag near and far from the edge. Veer right at the airport after leaving Dewey. In the shallow waters there comes vistas through mangrove patches. We parked the moped and sat bayside while large Iguanas scurried in fright into the dark entanglement these trees performed. Just...

  • That Carribbean Sea

    The sapphire Gin clear waters are everpresent. For every corner an expansive veiw opens up and temps my body. From a plane alot of bodies of water look blue. But as a bird comes down to the earth surface the waters darken. In the Carribean they remain dreamy at all levels of sight. Something buried inside my psyche pushes me towards, maybe the life...

  • Punta Soldado

    Accessability is the issue here. Headed south out of Dewey on a thin strip of see-ment, cross over the bridge and keep driving. The road will fade away into fragments and soon turn to dirt with scattered large rocks that render a moped useless. Dis-embark and ferry the bike turning the handle ever so slightly so your not pushing but the moped is...

    more
  • Playa Zoni

    Playa Zoni is a stretch away from the more popular Flamenco Beach. There are no publicos making it out here. You must either hitch a ride or do as we did and buzz there on a moped. The roads are choppy and broken and when the rain falls the last part of the voyage could get muddy. In a Local questioning we found out that this is the place the "loc...
