About Culebra Island
History & Demographics
Culebra is only 7 miles long and just 4 miles wide. Culebra is Spanish
for “serpent”. The island received this name because
of the shape as it bends in and out.
Pirates used to use this small island as a hideout. It is said that there
is still undiscovered treasure hidden in the waters around the island.
In 1909 then President Theodore Roosevelt established much of the coastline of Culebra
as a National Wildlife Refuge. Culebra, Puerto Rico was actually
one of the very first wildlife refuges in American history.
The US Navy used Culebra and surrounding smaller islands for their training purposes
from the time of World War II until 1975. You can still find spent artillery
shells and even an actual tank sits near the end of famous Flamenco Beach.
Less then 2000 people inhabit the island today. Residents speak the Spanish
language but English is common. The island is located 17 miles off the east
end of mainland Puerto Rico. And while this island is actually located closer
to the Virgin Islands (St. Thomas is just 12 miles away) then Culebra is considered
part of Puerto Rico.
You are going to need a comfortable place to stay.

"First of all the Doll Hose was perfect! I went
with 3 other friends (Eric, Kristin and Tara) for Tara's birthday and the house
was great. It was clean with hot water and beautiful views of the sunset (we watched
from the front yard) and sunrise (off the back deck). The kitchen was fully stocked
with all cooking needs and the back deck was so nice for grilling and drinking,
although there might be a bees nest close by, we saw MANY.
What our visitors say about this beautiful
Culebra Doll House
Flamenco beach is probably the best beach in the world, it's like a sanctuary. The
water is amazing, crystal blue, warm and refreshing, great for swimming. I absolutely
loved the food and drink vendors in the parking lot, it was very convenient for
when hunger strikes you and not to mention that the food is all fresh and made with
We rented a jeep from Jerry's Jeeps, I recommend him, he gives you this long involved
introductory speech when you pick up your rental about the island, places to go,
snorkeling spots etc. He also gives you this crazy looking self drawn map, but let
me tell you his info is priceless. By the 2nd day we were referring to the map constantly
and all of his little tips came in handy, he was awesome.
We loved loved loved Barbara Rosa's for dinner, Barbara literally cooks out of her
kitchen, if you don't mind waiting a little bit for your meal it was the best food
we had on the whole island. Mammacita's was delicious as well and had a great bar,
good vibe and a big screen tv for all of you sports fans. The locals here are friendly,
I mean who couldn't be on an island right? And you meet a lot of people who are
from the states originally and came to Culebra, loved it so much, and decided to
We did do some snorkeling, which was eye opening. The coral reefs are so colorful
and teaming with life. It's so easy to rent gear for the day, there is a dive shop
right at the ferry dock. Then you travel to Flamenco Beach parking lot, go on a
nice hike through the woods to Melones and Tamarindo beaches. They are secluded
and pristine and harbor some of the best snorkeling around. Sadly it was too windy
for us to kayak during our stay, but next time it's on our list.
Culebra was AMAZING!! So much so in fact we are coming back again this year!"
"We loved Culebra, particularly the beaches! We
also loved the location of your house. We hope to come back to Culebra and even
the Culebra Doll House in the future."

"We just returned from a three-week stay at Casa
Azul, and loved every minute of it. Your property affords such beautiful views--we
couldn't have hoped for any better. And the house itself is very comfortable. We
especially enjoyed the two hammock swings on the front porch--we spent many mornings
reading in them, but only after taking in the sunrise views from the back deck.
The washer was an added bonus--we only used it once, but it was very handy.
Two more things to share with you: your information about the beaches was very helpful
to us, we referred to it often; and I'm not sure if Raquel at Vacation Planners
actually works for you or for a bigger company, but she is an absolute gem--we loved
her and she was extremely helpful with any questions or issues we had. She actually
loaned us a personal item or two to make our stay a little easier--I hope she is
being well compensated.
Hope to visit again sometime! "
