With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
On the 8th (Sat), enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Punta Soldado Beach. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: browse the collection at Culebra Public Library and then enjoy the sand and surf at Flamenco Beach.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Culebra trip itinerary planning tool .

Newark, USA to Culebra is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight, shuttle, and ferry. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Newark to Culebra due to the time zone difference. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Newark in June: high temperatures in Culebra hover around 89°F and lows are around 79°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Mon) so you can fly to San Juan.

Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Get out of town with these interesting San Juan side-trips: El Yunque National Forest (El Yunque Rain Forest & Luquillo Beach). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Old San Juan, get engrossed in the history at Cathedral of San Juan Bautista, scramble along the landscape with a canyoning and rapelling tour, and indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour.

To find reviews, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read San Juan trip planning website .

San Juan is very close to Culebra. In June, plan for daily highs up to 89°F, and evening lows to 78°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
