Stay during the weekend May 2 - 4, 2014.
The transportation to the island is the WORST ever. Don't expect to get to the island on a certain time since tickets are not sold in advance and locals have sell and priority boarding. There were tourists waiting as early as 5 am and got the chance to board on the very last ferry 5 pm.
Awful boarding process, people complaining, screaming.... Explore flying to the island first and avoid the ferry.
Carlos Jeep rental. We did the golf car option. Although it took longer to move from one place to another, it was a good experience. Roads are in poor conditions, lights on the road are non existent, so you will find yourself driving in a very dark road full of holes in a golf car. Safety tip: choose a jeep instead.
Have dinner early. Few restaurants are open for dinner. Tried to dine in two different restaurants in the same night, they were full. When ask @ Mamacitas Rest for a table we were rudely treated. They say they had a very long line and were closed for the night. Ended up at Willys Pizza where the order of one large pizza took over 45 minutes to be ready. The reason? They dropped our order ticket to the floor.
Sea Breeze @ Culebra. Nice property. Room showed signs of being clean on last minute. As we arrived we notice the kitchen sink was full of dirty water. Maintenance service was requested and they fix the problem on time. No restaurant on site.
The beach was beautiful. Umbrellas and chairs rentals available. Plenty of areas to eat.
Although the beach is beautiful and it is a must see, it is not worth it to go through all the ferry transportation and food issues to see the island.
Locals do their best but it seems they don't receive much help from the tourist department on the main island.
Bring your own food and travel on a plane will be your best deal.
Anyways the best part of our trip? My travel friends...we did the best out of it and had such a great time together.
