Fajardo lodging??
Culebra, Puerto Rico

Hello all, I'm wondering if anyone has advice for a place to stay in Fajardo while waiting for the ferry? We arrive in San Juan at 7pm and were planning to get a ride to Fajardo that night. All I can seem to find online is far too nice and expensive for someone who only wants a place to crash for a few hours. Any help would be appreciated----looking forward to our visit!

By the way, is there any reason the campground would be crowded the week after the new year??

We just returned from Puerto Rico and we stayed at the Passion Fruit Bed and Breakfast for two nights before heading over to Culebra. I would highly recommend the Passion Fruit in Fajardo. The manager Gladys is great and the breakfast is very good!!! The website is Enjoy your trip to Puerto Rico!!!

Passion Fruit is first choice - you will need a car and about $8x.

Within walking distance are Porta Real Guesthouse 787-863-0018 and the Express 787-863-1362 I do NOT recommed these, however they might be what you are looking for. On the days, before the 7:00 pm ferry when we missed the 3:00pm we had few other choices. Clean sheets, nearby and cheap - perhaps $5x. Now if you want a view...:) Jackie

We're staying at Fajardo Inn, which they tell me is in walking distance from the ferry (a 10-15 minute walk). For us it turned out to be the cheapest way to go because they have a Triple Room that can fit all 6 of us.

As for the week after New Year, I believe there is a holiday that does attract people. (Is it something like Three Saints Day?) I don't know the exact timing for 2008.

We're arriving on Jan 9, and I believe it's over by then. Does anyone know more details?

Other than that, January is a great time to stay at the campground. It's probably one of the least crowded times of the year.

Three Kings Day. It is on the 6th (always), and is a great time to be there. The Three Kings bring the children presents at the ferry dock, and there is a horse parade throughout the town area and up into the neighborhoods close to town.

Happy Diving!
