San Juan to Culebra

I have never been to Puerto Rico before, but am planning on spending 3 night in Culebra in May. What is the best way to get to the island from San Juan. Should I rent a car? If I do, should I take it across the ferry? Is there somewhere to leave it in Fajarado? Is flying crazy expensive? Please help!

Hi Jessica,
Flying to Culebra from Isla Grande or taking a taxi to Fajardo to either take the ferry or fly from Fajardo is ususally 6 of one and a half dozen of the other. I think the most efficient thing to do and the fastest is taking a taxi to Isla Grande airport and flying to Culebra for approx. $100 round trip. Renting a car and taking it on the ferry may not be possible, but you can rent a car on Culebra if you feel it necessary.

I think your plans depend on your budget and time factor. A taxi from Luis Munoz Marin airport to Isla Grande is between $10-$15, you should tip for each bag. Airfare from Isla Grande to Culebra $90-$100 round trip ticket. This route would get you from Isla Verde to Culebra in maybe 1 1/2 hours give or take the time to get your luggage, etc., it would get you to Culebra fast.

Another option is to take a publico from Isla Verde to Fajardo (1 hour trip, maybe more depending on the traffic) which I've heard can cost about $65-$70 with John Rosario or (787)354-5851. Check out the travel blog for details about him, many comments that he is a good driver and responsible. At Fajardo you take the ferry to Culebra for $2.25 one way ticket, a 1 1/4- 1 1/2 hour trip depending on the sea weather. This route is less money but it will require more time. Maybe you can combine and enjoy the sites and talking to people along the way. Happy travels! J

The taxi fare from LMM to Isla Grande has been raised to $19.50.

Happy Diving!
