Fajardo to Culebra?

Jump to last reply

Will be in PR in Feb 2013, arriving Sat & leaving Wed, so we only have 3 full days. Staying in Luqillo. My husband & I would really like to visit Culebra but I am concerned about how long the ferry takes to & from, and how choppy/rough the ride might be. We'd love to spend time on their beautiful beaches for a day, maybe do some snorkeling. I'm thinking we would do that Mon or Tues, since I heard it is much busier with locals on weekends. Is it worth the time for the quality of their beaches? I tend to get motion sick. We plan to have a car on PR and do lots of exploring on the other 2 days. Thanks for any comments!

    Plan on trip taking about 1 1/2 hours. How rough the ride is, is hit-and-miss. Sometimes rough (take Dramamine) and sometimes calm. Just depends. If motion sickness is a significant concern, you may want to consider flying from Isla-Grande, or from Ceiba. Flights are only 1/2 hour long. Check out Vieques Air, or Flamenco Air websites for costs.

    Culebra has amazing beaches. There is a good chance that when snorkeling off of Tamarindo you can find sea turtles, rays and a variety of other fish. Carlos Rosario and a variety of other spots on the island also have great snorkeling.

    Flamenco beach is beautiful and popular with visitors perhaps in part because of its ease of access. Other beaches that require a bit of hiking such as Resaca and Brava beaches are equally beautiful (rip tides and under-toes on these beaches can be dangerous) however, when I have visited them, I have been able to pass a few hours or even an entire day without seeing another person.

    By taking a short water taxi ride you can visit Culebrita (near by island) with its lighthouse, beautiful, tranquil beaches and great snorkeling.

    Enjoy Culebra,

    I definitely recommend that you visit Culebra, and explore its beautiful beaches and reefs.
