With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
Kick off your visit on the 7th (Mon): enjoy the sand and surf at Zoni Beach, then head off the coast to Culebrita Island, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Carlos Rosario Beach. On the 8th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: enjoy the sand and surf at Tamarindo Beach and then enjoy the sand and surf at Flamenco Beach.

Raleigh, USA to Culebra is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Raleigh to Culebra due to the time zone difference.
