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.  


Culebra Diving

There is not much on Culebra to do, so head off it and explore the water surrounding the island.  Sunken boats, natural tunnels, and a variety of wildlife make it a prime spot for divers.

You'll find two dive services and at least 14 different dive sites in the area. To read our guide to diving opportunities in this area, read this page.
