Culebra is one of the most tranquil and serene islands of the Puerto Rico archipelago, home to stunning beaches and it's elusive giant lizard.
Culebra is nothing like the commercial and bustling Puerto Rico. Over here, you don't have clubs and casinos and crowded streets. In Culebra, you get to absorb the beauty of nature, and lose yourself in the amazing serenity of the island. Culebra has a fabulous collection of beaches to get a tan on and relax. The Flamenco Beach in particular, is definitely going to rank in the best beaches you've ever visited. It's lined with trees and shrubs and is a hugely popular weekend destination for Puerto Ricans. Like many other popular beaches, it is dotted with food stalls and small shops to get a taste of the local food and grab some souvenirs. If you're looking for something more hands on, you can try your hand at snorkelling which is available at various sites throughout the island. Culebra is definitely worth a day trip from Puerto Rico to check out the calm and peaceful side of the Caribbean.
