Flamenco Beach Campground
Reviewed November 20, 2012

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.

Room Tip: I try to choose a tent site in Zona E at the very end of the camp ground. It is about a 1/4 mile wal...

In planning our trip to Puerto Rico, my wife and I were debating whether it was worth bringing along our camping gear (a substantial amount of additional weight and space in our backpacks) so that we could camp 2 nights at Flamenco Beach. I can tell you now it was well worth it! If you do camping, you will want to camp here. If you don't do camping (or camp very much), it's probably best to stay somewhere else.

The reason to camp anywhere is to sleep in a gorgeous natural location. Flamenco Beach is just that. Bright blue-green water, gently sloping white sand, warm water, and underwater reefs to explore are all right here. It's a little slice of heaven to wake up in the morning to the sound of ocean waves and walk right out on to a gorgeous beach like this. So there you have it: one of the best locations in the world you can camp. Here's what else you need to know:

Bugs: people seemed to have differing opinions on how bad the bugs are. Our experience was that they are there, but if you wear bug spray, you'll be fine. If you are used to the summertime bugs in the Midwest US, you will feel right at home. If you are from the Southwest US and have never been bitten by a mosquito, then you might find the bugs annoying. I reserve the term "bad bugs" for places like Everglades NP and Pictured Rocks NL.

Facilities: The facilities are not nice, but they are not primitive. There are showers, though they are outside and fully exposed (no privacy, people seem to shower with their swimsuits on). There are flush toilets, though there was no toilet paper provided (bring some of your own). Picnic tables are provided. Potable water is provided from large tanks.

Sites: The campground is not organized into individual campsites, it's organized into five zones: A, B, C, D, E. We stayed in Zone E, which is the "quiet" zone. It's more of a walk, but well worth it. It was blissfully quiet. You just find an open spot and put down your tent (like Hawaii Volcanoes NP or Haleakala NP). You are set back just behind the beachfront vegetation (steps away from the water), not directly on the beach next to the water.

Getting there: Just take a taxi from Dewey. My wife and I walked, and it was okay (took 50 minutes). We wouldn't want to do it again. Once was enough.

We loved our stay, and would do it again in a heartbeat!

My husband and I just returned from a great stay at Flamenco Beach Campground. After reading about the different designated areas within the campsite, we opted to stay in Zona E, which is the quiet zone. This area was surprisingly full when we arrived, so we didn't have a lot of options in terms of setting up our tent. Zonas A, B, C and D were practically empty when we arrived, but since we had heard about those areas getting noisy on the weekends, we remained in Zona E and were glad to have made that decision. People were extremely quiet and respectful throughout our stay there and when the weekend rolled around, the rest of the campground filled up with large groups of main islanders who were there to party, stay up late and have fun (we couldn't hear them from where we were, fortunately!).

The campground is very simple (outdoor showers, toilets but no sinks, although there are huge water tanks with spigots to use for washing dishes or brushing your teeth). The grounds people did a pretty good job of keeping the place clean. By far the best thing about it is the amazing location. Flamenco Beach is breathtaking- definitely the most beautiful beach on the island. Stepping out of your tent each morning and walking on to a white-sand beach is pretty unbeatable!

Assuming you're the hearty tent camping type person, there is no reason you wouldn't love this place. The beach is freaking gorgeous, and for $20 a night you get to call it your home. The campsites are in from the sand under a shady area with trees and bushes and whatnot to protect you from the wind and shade you from the sun. The campground is quite large, stretching along the beach, and they reserve the last zone furthest from the camp entrance for quiet people, so I cant imagine it being full enough to be noisy all the way out there, but I suppose its possible if it got really busy. During my stay it was clean, quiet and seemed very safe. I never worried about my stuff getting messed with. There's plenty of services at the camp entrance, but about 6 or 7 in the evening they all shut down, so after that point you are on your own for food or beer or whatever. Town is about a 20 min walk (some steep hills and the road can be dark at night) or 3$ cab ride away, though.
My only gripe would be that the showers are not private, and could be easily made so with a plastic tarp or plywood or something, but as it is they are all open air and face the main path through the campground, so I showered with my swim trunks on. Could be more of an issue for the ladies. Otherwise the facilities are as good as you could ask for from a campground. Flush toilets, many picnic tables, bbq pits, etc. Basically you're spending 20$ a night to enjoy a beautiful Carribean island where the hotels start at 100$ a night, so what's not to like?

My husband and I just came back from a 5 day camping trip to Flamenco Beach campground. We had a great time! I had read several reviews describing the campground as noisy, problems with showers etc. From Mon-Frid the campground was empty, there were only a few tents on site E, A_D had no one. We placed our tent on E, is the best site, you can place your tent at path entrances to the beach. Fir and Sat it became busier, since it was a long weekend, but it was never loud at site E. Most who arrived Fri and Sat stayed at sites A-D.

The toilets were always cleaned, they clean them twice a day. The showers sometimes are turned off, just go to the office and ask them to turn them on. We had water all the 5 days we were there. The temperature in April is perfect, water is warm, hot during the day, but not crazy hot like in july and aug and the nights were cool and we had a nice breeze from the ocean. I loved culebra.

Keep in mind that you flamenco beach campground, won't be as perfect as campground perhaps in the USVI or BVI. You will find garbage throughout the campground, which was sady and several visitors were upset.

Flamenco is a beautiful beach, if you do go to culebra, go to Culebrita for the day... it was awesome.
