With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
Here are some ideas for day two: visit a coastal fixture at Culebrita Lighthouse, then step off the mainland to explore Culebrita Island, and then stroll through Zoni Beach.

To see photos, maps, ratings, and tourist information, use the Culebra trip planner.

Washington DC, USA to Culebra is an approximately 8-hour combination of train and flight. You can also fly; or do a combination of flight, shuttle, and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Washington DC to Culebra. While traveling from Washington DC, expect a bit warmer days and much warmer nights in Culebra, ranging from highs of 85°F to lows of 76°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Wed) so you can travel to Isla de Vieques.

Isla de Vieques

Isla de Vieques ©
For sixty years until 2003, most of the Isla de Vieques was closed off to the public, with the US Navy using the island's beaches and surrounding waters for drills and testing of new military machinery, such as bombs.
You'll get in some beach time at Sun Bay and Media Luna Beach. Escape the urban bustle at La Chiva and Kayaking & Canoeing. There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, visit a coastal fixture at Puerto Ferro Lighthouse, and stop by Isla Vida.

For maps, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, read our Isla de Vieques itinerary builder site .

Getting from Culebra to Isla de Vieques by combination of flight and car takes about 2.5 hours. Other options: ride a ferry. April in Isla de Vieques sees daily highs of 85°F and lows of 75°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) early enough to travel to San Juan.
