"We stopped at the Carlos Jeep rental in the airport, we begin to head somewhere to get breakfast. And ding, the gas light came on, so we tried for about 10 minutes to find a gas station. When we found it, it wasn't open for another hour. Growing increasingly frustrated as we waited, the station opened about 810, filled up, and off to find food. We spoke to a local who directed us to a restaurant, upon arriving it was closed, then we spoke to a firefighter who directed us to another restaurant, also closed. We then went back to the airport to see if the cafe was open yet. But apparently it was closed that day, we finally made it to La Pista, which was simple, but okay."
This paragraph ought to be required reading for every person who is thinking about visiting Culebra. If you will find these types of situations stressful or frustrating, Culebra is not for you. And that's okay! This is not an indictment of Robert T., as we all have different circumstances that make us happy, whether on vacation or every day living. Culebra is what it is and there are days it is EXACTLY as Robert T. has described it.
My week has been consumed with thoughts of Culebra as I'll be there Saturday night. Bringing one newcomer and one friend that has only been there during the so-called high season for Americanos: President's Week in February. Have dutifully warned them that Culebra in October is ... well ... a little different. Can't wait!
