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 4th (Tue): kick back and relax at Playa Punta Soldado Beach and then kick back and relax at Flamenco Beach. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 5th (Wed): enjoy the sea views from Culebrita Lighthouse, step off the mainland to explore Culebrita Island, and then stroll through Zoni Beach.

To find other places to visit, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, use the Culebra trip maker site.

Durham, USA to Culebra is an approximately 10.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, bus, and flight; or do a combination of flight, shuttle, and ferry. Traveling from Durham to Culebra, you'll lose 1 hour due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Durham in August since evenings lows in Culebra dip to 80°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Wed) early enough to fly to San Juan.
