The grocery stores have grown in recent years and are now handling a much wider selection of fresh produce. There are several, but the one I know the best is Milka over by Joe's Frozen Hielo. I'm not sure if the truck still operates or not.
On New Year's there is a great party in the plaza by the ferry dock. In 2002, they had 2 bands, wonderful dancing and fireworks that went off a bit earlier than midnight (now, there's a switch).
Lana was one of my favorite Culebrenses. I'll always remember when she took me and my disabled friend on a sunset cruise, and salsa danced with him, despite his disability, as if he were Fred Astaire. Her boat, Tanama, is now operated by another lady, Capt. Pat , wife of Capt. Jack, of Muff the Dive Boat fame. They will be able to provide good service for taxi customers.
Happy New Year!
