With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
Culebra is known for beaches, wildlife, and nature. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: tour the pleasant surroundings at Flamenco Beach, browse the collection at Culebra Public Library, enjoy the sand and surf at Brava Beach, and head off the coast to Culebrita Island.

To see maps, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, read Culebra trip itinerary planning website.

New York City, USA to Culebra is an approximately 9-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from New York City to Culebra due to the time zone difference.
