You should not have too much trouble finding the Culebra National Wildlife Refuge, as it makes up the majority of the island. The massive size does mean however, that the amenities and services are spread out, so don't expect everything to be in one place.

When most visit the wildlife reserve, they will be heading to the beautiful beaches. However, you can also take the time to hike a little and visit some of the ruins that can be found on the island, or visit the nesting sites of rare and endangered birds. Finally, one thing you can't do in smaller parks, is simply to drive around. The clean air and pretty scenery is perfect for exploring at you own pace.


Culebra Nature Reserve is situated on the western side of the island of Isla de Culebra; it is to the northwest of Culebra Pueblo.

You will have to take a ferry, private charter, or a plane to get to Culebra Island.
