    I just posted some thoughts on places to go while in Puerto Rico. Culebra is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL place on Earth. It takes a while to get there on the ferry. Maybe flying if you don't like the boat movement. The Flamingo Beach is absolutely spectacular. Off the ferry, the town is small, but easliy excessible. Many drivers available for pretty cheap. Are you staying there for long, or just the day. I wish I'd stayed for at least the entire weekend, but just the day gave me a new perspective on life (well, sort of). It's the place that the travel magazines get their inspiration for photos. Carumba! Let me know your plans, and I can help guide you. Have fun, and wear LOTS of sunscreen. Ouch!

    It is a fine travel experience. At first glance it retains a "Margaritaville" dilapidated charm. Flamengo Beach is a broad powdery beach with ample space and limited facilities. The port of Dewey has small restaurants, bars, dive shops and hotels owned by moslty north american expatriates. They tend to segregate from the locals, so contact with the locals may have to be an effort. There are limited ATM and other services on the island. No public transport on the island, so it is worthwhile to hire a taxi for excursions. Getting to and from the dock in Fajardo and Vieques is by scheduled ferry, or direct air service via charter from San Juan.

    I just posted a bunch of information about Culebra on my travel pages. Check them out! We went there last August and absolutely LOVED it! :-)
