I think your plans depend on your budget and time factor. A taxi from Luis Munoz Marin airport (Isla Verde) to Isla Grande Airport is almost $20, you should tip for each bag. It' a 10 minute ride. Airfare from Isla Grande to Culebra $90-$100 round trip ticket (maybe more with the rise in fuel prices). 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 (taxi) 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 firstname.lastname@example.org , (787)354-5851, or any other taxi driver. Check out the this website's travel blog for details about him, many comments that he is a good driver and responsible and will pick you up at the airport. 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.
You can also take a plane from Fajardo. Again, depending on the fuel prices it may cost between $50-$100 round trip. Go to the TRANSPORT part of this website to find out about the airline companies. Maybe you can combine and enjoy the sites and talking to people along the way. Any route you pick will be safe. Check out the TRANSPORT part of this website for more info. Happy travels! J
