A small island about 20 miles east of Puerto Rico, Culebra is the type of deserted island destination you choose specifically to spend your days lying on the beach and do nothing.  When that is not enough, there are a few other beloved activities like snorkeling, beach-combing, and birding.  There are also a few shops on the island that will allow you to scratch the itch to pick up a few souvenirs and much of what you will find is locally and artistically crafted.
