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, nature, outdoors, and adventure. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: stroll through Flamenco Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at Culebra National Wildlife Refuge, get lost in a book at Culebra Public Library, and enjoy the sand and surf at Tamarindo Beach.

For reviews and more tourist information, you can read our Culebra travel route planner.

Moline, USA to Culebra is an approximately 14.5-hour combination of flight and car. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time to Atlantic Standard Time, which is usually a 2 hour difference. Prepare for much warmer weather when traveling from Moline in February: high temperatures in Culebra hover around 84°F and lows are around 73°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sat) so you can fly to San Juan.
