Hi Chelsey. Congrats on your engagement. Neither of you have ever been out of Florida? That's amazing! Well, you're in for a treat.
Since you're spending almost a week there, you'll benefit from spending a few hours looking through past threads on this forum. There's lots of info in them.
Flamenco Beach is a no-brainer. It's one of the most beautiful in the world. Walk across the hill from Flamenco for superb snorkeling at Carlos Rosario. Definitely buy your own mask, snorkel and fins if you don't already own them. You can buy them cheap at Amazon or Wal-Mart, etc.
It's a very big production to get from Culebra to San Juan for the day by ferry. Definitely not worth the effort. Virtually your entire day would be used up just going back and forth (unless you fly, and that's kind of expensive). Instead, spend time in San Juan either before or after Culebra. You won't want to leave Culebra anyway.
There is not a lot of nightlife. There are a couple bars that sometimes can get festive.
People don't go to Culebra for wild partying... They go for the beauty and tranquility, and to get away from the hectic world. I think it's perfect for a honeymoon. Just relax and be romantic.
