Vacation Rentals in Culebra
Culebra, Puerto Rico

Hi everyody!

I would like to point out some differences between vacation rentals in Culebra and big hotels that you might be used to:

In Culebra most places you might want to stay at will charge a deposit, sometimes even full payment. The charm of Culebra lies exactly with those small places. Very often they have policies that will not refund your payment less than 30 days or even more prior to arrival. Why is that?

Most people that come to Culebra plan a long time in advance. So if you cancel, the likelihood of re renting gets very close to zero even a month in advance.

Hotels usually overbook - just like airlines - to hedge against no-shows. You will appreciate that your beds will be made and waiting for you when you arrive on Culebra. To guarantee this nobody in Culebra overbooks.

If you are not certain that you will really come or really want to stay at a certain place, do not book and think, hey I can always stop payment on the credit card. Please, find out everything you can and then you will be happy with your vacation home. This forum is a good place to get different views on different places. If you agree/disagree with opinions, do a search for the author - do you like his general viewpoint? was s/he posting just once to talk badly about a place? does it sound like a vendetta? does the person know Culebra?

Do your homework and Culebra will be the best experience you ever had!

Enjoy Culebra!

Hey There.
I'm considering Culebra for April and wondered about inexpensive lodging other than camping. Also, is there one side of the island better than the other for weather during March, and how safe is it for a single woman?

If you will be by yourself and don't plan to rent a car then thn Casa Ensenada will be a ggod fit for you. I stayed their this past January by myself and rented out the Pequeno studio which had a nice sized bed, air conditioning, a walk in shower, a small fridge and a kitchen sink. The room was more than enough for me plus you will be about a 5 minute walk to the ferry dock where you can pick up the Publicos (taxis) to take you to Flamenco Beach for the bargain price of $2.00. You will also be very close to Pandeli which offers great breakfast and within a 5 to 6 minute walk to Mamacitas Restaurant and the Dinghy Dock. On this forum just click on Shelter and you will find the information necessary. The owners of the property Butch and Jackie Pendergast are great people.

Thought I would bump this thread. The sentiment still holds after all these years :)

What is new, that it's easier than ever to compare prices: I have written an app, that compares apples to apples; in other words includes all the (usually) hidden taxes and fees for the best value deals on the island for any given date:

Enjoy Culebra!
