January, 2013 will be my seventh stay at Flamenco Beach Campground. Although I'll be traveling solo, most campers I've met there are warm and friendly, and I've spent many evenings around a camp fire, sharing drinks and talking with my new friends about the days activities, and tomorrows plans. The campgrounds are clean and well maintained. Facilities provided include, restrooms, potable water, showers, and BBQ pits. I typically stay for two weeks at a time, and have camped there during the months of October, December, January, March, April and May. The following beaches are within easy walking distance, Flamenco (of course), Tamarindo and Luis Pena. Although I am a certified scuba diver, I prefer to snorkel the reefs off of Tamarindo and Luis Pena and in addition to many fish, I frequently see Turtles and rays. Somedays I rent a jeep or scooter and ride out to beaches further away. Rasaca and Brava beaches require some hiking but the experience of spending a few hours, or sometimes and entire day on a beautiful beach with no other people around is amazing!!! As a note to campers, if you happen to forget some equipment, or run out of something while on the island, there are markets in town where you can buy most things you need. In fact, right off the parking lot of Flamenco beach is a Kiosko (Tent City) that rents tents, sleeping bags, etc. In addition to Tent City, there are 4 or 5 other Kioskos that sell great food and drinks. As an added benefit of camping at Flamenco Beach, as beautiful as the beach is during the day; at night, under a full moon a walk on the beach or a fun dip in the water to cool off before going to bed is absolutely amazing. For me, Culebra is a fantastic vacation and I highly recommend camping on Flamenco Beach.
