Culebra is close to Fajardo and east of Puerto Rico. A ferry runs from main land Puerto Rico to Culebra, three trips a day each way. (One Way $2.25 per person) The population in Culebra is about 2000 people.
Culebra is known for its ‘Flamenco Beach’. According to a brochure, ‘it is named the second most beautiful in the world by the Discovery Channel and the second best in the Caribbean by TripAdvisor in 2014.’
Because of heavy rain and strong wind, when we visited, we found lots of seaweed washed on the beach. For normal days, I can see Flamenco Beach offers pristine water, snorkeling reefs, white sand, nice camping sites, little local restaurants, and a free atmosphere.Due to the rain, we often visited the Culebra Community Library to use WiFi. I was very impressed and inspired by ‘Culebra Community Library’ especially that it was established by the community. It offers books both in English and Spanish, a small children’s room with games and books, full computer and WiFi services, sewing room facilities, and cinema (small room converted to a theater)! The main financial support comes from donations from the library users. WiFi services are offered voluntarily for minimum $1.00 per hour and 50 cents additional ½ hour; however, they need support to continue to stay open and going.
