With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
On the 12th (Sun), visit a coastal fixture at Culebrita Lighthouse, then head off the coast to Culebrita Island, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Zoni Beach. On the 13th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: kick back and relax at Flamenco Beach and then get lost in a book at Culebra Public Library.
