The place is beautiful but you will enjoy the most depending on the time of the year you go. Spring beak is not the best time to go. Local students of puerto rico go there to drink, smoke, fornicate and fight. The place just because a mess and insecured.

Nicely protected part of Culebra, but not really for tourist exploration. Your beaches are all around Culebra & surrounding islands.

I was staying on the mainland and read ratings of this island being the 3rd most beautiful and felt I had to see it. There is no easy way to get there. There is a ferry but you hear horror stories of getting there two hours early to stand in line and then not get on the ferry. We booked... More

I have been here twice now, and each time I kick myself for not spending more time here. Too many daytrippers can dilute your experience as well. Trust me, it is one of the most beautiful places on earth, and I have traveled around the world. You want time here, you want to explore. You want to spend time on... More

We arranged a day in a small boat with a local charter company. The snorkeling is FABULOUS. However, be VERY CAREFUL of the rip current. My husband "saved" me, but the locals just sat on the beach watching. True, they had warned us, and my husband is a MUCH better swimmer than me, so my own fault. Just do be... More

We went to Culebra with Kayakingpuertorico.com. We have a good time. New ferry take less than an hour from Fajardo.
