I have been here twice now, and each time I kick myself for not spending more time here. Too many daytrippers can dilute your experience as well. Trust me, it is one of the most beautiful places on earth, and I have traveled around the world. You want time here, you want to explore. You want to spend time on... More

We arranged a day in a small boat with a local charter company. The snorkeling is FABULOUS. However, be VERY CAREFUL of the rip current. My husband "saved" me, but the locals just sat on the beach watching. True, they had warned us, and my husband is a MUCH better swimmer than me, so my own fault. Just do be... More

Anaska wrote an inaccurate description of Culebra Beaches. Many of my relatives visited Mexico and left disappointed as well. The glossy pictures of Mexico was got my relatives attention. Just like them I prefer Culebra. The place is not for everybody.

We went to Culebra with Kayakingpuertorico.com. We have a good time. New ferry take less than an hour from Fajardo.

No high rises, not even little buildings in sight when you're on the beach. It's just gorgeous, SOme parts have huge waves and others a perfectly... More

Well, we first thought we would take the boat, the weather had been fine, but then talking to several people we heard that though the boat/ferry fee is minimal it's a 2 hour ride where many... More

Believe it or not, I visited Culebra and found that Flamenco Beach is a beautiful beach, but I am NOT going to talk about it. I am going to talk about Tamarindo Grande... More
