With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
Family-friendly places like Flamenco Beach and Brava Beach will thrill your kids. Next up on the itinerary: step off the mainland to explore Culebrita Island, get lost in a book at Culebra Public Library, enjoy the sand and surf at Melones Beach, and look for all kinds of wild species at Culebra National Wildlife Refuge.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Culebra fast, fun, and easy.
