They are both good, but surprisingly different. Snorkeling is a little better on Culebra. Here is a post I wrote in which I compared the two islands:


There is slightly more to do and there are more accommodations on Vieques. Both islands are laid-back, even more so on Culebra. Even though it's small, Culebra has some fairly good restaurants.

Going to either of these islands and then getting on a crowded cruise ship would be extreme culture shock. You should be aware that there is little action on these islands; the type of people that go to Culebra or Vieques are generally not the cruise ship variety.

For more Culebra-specific info. you can take a look at http://culebrablog.com .

Too, if you are going in March, you should make your reservations early as March is the busiest months of the year!
