Culebra

Little Island

With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Culebrita Island and Tamarindo Beach. There's still lots to do: get interesting insight from Tours, see the interesting displays at Museo Historico de Culebra, see Jerry’s Jeep Rental, and enjoy the sand and surf at Flamenco Beach.

To see where to stay, ratings, more things to do, and tourist information, use the Culebra trip itinerary builder site.

In September, Culebra is much warmer than Stockholm - with highs of 37°C and lows of 30°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Tue) early enough to travel to El Yunque National Forest.
