With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
Kick off your visit on the 19th (Sun): enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Punta Soldado Beach and then enjoy the sand and surf at Flamenco Beach.

For maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Culebra trip planning tool.

Chicago, USA to Culebra is an approximately 10-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Chicago to Culebra. Prepare for much warmer weather when traveling from Chicago in January: high temperatures in Culebra hover around °F and lows are around °F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Sun) early enough to travel to San Juan.
