Culebra

Culebra ©
With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
Start off your visit on the 18th (Sun): kick back and relax at Playa Punta Soldado Beach, stroll through Zoni Beach, and then kick back and relax at Tamarindo Beach. Keep things going the next day: visit a coastal fixture at Culebrita Lighthouse, thenkick back and relax at Carlos Rosario Beach, and then step off the mainland to explore Culebrita Island.

Plan my Culebra trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Richmond, USA to Culebra is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Atlantic Standard Time, which is usually a 1 hour difference. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Richmond in June since evenings lows in Culebra dip to 79°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Tue) early enough to travel to Isla de Vieques.
