Most often, the planes aren't completely full in my experience.
Once I was the only person aboard. (Well, there was a pilot, too!)
If the plane happens to be full and there is a weight concern, the worst that will happen is they'll ask you to wait til the next flight. This happens to luggage sometimes, but it's rare.
If you're flying to Culebra on a Saturday, or flying out on a Sunday, those days will tend to be the most crowded.
If you want to be absolutely safe and money isn't an issue, you can always buy an extra seat as you mentioned.
Did you call the airlines and ask them if there is a personal weight limit for a single seat ticket? They'll tell you. I'm guessing that they'll say it's only an issue of total plane weight, but I don't know for sure.
