Culebrita Wildlife Refuge

Part of the Culebra National Wildlife Refuge, this islet is an important part of the migratory path of 13 different species of birds who travel through the area each year.

In addition to the birds and three species of turtles that call Culebrita home, more than 50,000 seabirds stop here to breed their young here. There are also nearly 100 species of plants here for visitors to be on the look out for.
