A trip to Culebra





Last Thanksgiving, a bunch of friends and I went on a trip to Culebra, a little island just southeast of the bigger island of Puerto Rico. It was a bit stressful being a poor student and trying to juggle costs, but was well worth it. The beach in Culebra is amazing. Definitely the highlight of my stay in Puerto Rico.

Dining



Food is really expensive in San Juan. Remember the taxes and tips! We saved a lot by bringing our own food for most of the trip. That being said, check out Mai Pen Rai they are really good and they even have vegan/vegetarian options. Of course, we couldn’t resist stopping by Starbucks in Ponce.




Housing



We didn’t try to stay in Culebra –that would have been way too expensive. We ended up staying in Luquillo and making a day trip to the island. It’s best to book early. Try not to rent a flooded house.



















Ferry



The ferry lines may be long, but not when you travel on a rainy day in the middle of the week. While it may seem like a horrible idea to go to Culebra in the rain fact of the matter is that you are going to the beach to play in the water. So, unless there is like thunder and lightning or something; don’t let a little rain shower extinguish your trip.











Mosquitos



We heard fantastic reports about mosquitos; however, we hardly got bitten. That could have been due copious sums of bug spray or maybe they island was freshly sprayed or the rain. Hopefully, you get our luck.
