Culebra, Puerto Rico, is a small island on the Atlantic Ocean, with a very laid-back atmosphere, full of white sand beaches, good snorkeling spots, some small trails and hikes, and great weather all year round!
You can arrive by ferry; you can also fly directly onto the island, as two companies fly here from other cities in Puerto Rico. On the island, it will be easy to find accommodation, and hostels in Culebra, Puerto Rico, offer the best value for money.
This place is great for outdoor activities. Flamenco Beach is simply a postcard picture of impossible-to-resist blue-and-turquoise water. The snorkeling is decent, but if you walk until the end of the beach (the left side if you are facing the ocean), you will find old war tanks (one of them is half-way in the water). For snorkeling, you can't miss Tamarindo Beach; a huge number of turtles come quite close to the beach to feed everyday. To spot half a dozen, just head to the left part of the beach (the rocky part of it) and start swimming. The bottom of the beach will change from rock to white sand, and then seaweed. This is last part is where the turtles feed everyday, not more than fifteen meters from the beach shore.
If you are more into hiking, Culebra also has good options. Both beaches in the middle of the north shore are accessible only by trails. The beaches are a little bit windy and wavy, but no one is ever there. But if you are searching for an isolated paradise, head to Koni Beach, on the eastern part of the island. It's a long walk from the town, but you can rent a Jeep or a golf car for the day.
The hostels in Culebra, Puerto Rico, are nice but basic and simple, although you may expect to pay a little more than the average in Puerto Rico (however, Culebra, Puerto Rico hostels will give you the best-value-for-money option in terms of accommodation). The busiest hostels in Culebra, Puerto Rico, will be near the ferry; if you search further, you will find a laid-back atmosphere.
