Culebra Island Stories and Tips

Return to Culebra

Moring path to beach Photo, Culebra Island, Puerto Rico

Last time I wrote about Culebra:

This is probably one of the most beautiful beaches on our planet. Camping is available here for two night minimums at US$10 per night, otherwise pay more at the lodgings down the cove.

Flamenco is named for the flamenco coral that is dwindling off the coral reef that parallels the shore for about 6km due to increased ocean pollution and some irresponsible tourist use. Lets hope they come back in full swing! See them for yourself with snorkel gear or SCUBA for a better adventure... just beware of occasional sharks and anticipate the rare dolphin sight!

************************************ The facilities have been slightly improved to accommodate spring breakers from Puerto Rico. People continue to be a little more conscious of the environment here, as I never saw any trash other than the occasional beer can in the sand. Yes, I threw it away and I made sure to show other to do the same.

Also, the prices for the beach-front hotels have increased, and the competition from other small-resort areas has made real estate on the tiny island a venture for the wealthy. Boo hoo!! That has to change!

Been to this destination?
