A day and a half
Culebra, Puerto Rico

My wife and I booked a trip to Puerto Rico ( March 12-19 ) without fully investigating everything that could be done. I now know that we will be coming to Culebra and a half a day doesn't seem like enough time to me. We would like to camp on the beach, snorkel and explore the island. Here are some questions I have - we will be on a tight budget:

1) Where is the best place to camp on the beach?
2) Do you suggest that we rent bikes to get around the island?
3) Where can we rent snorkeling equiptment?
4) Where are the best places to snorkel directly from the beach?

This web site is awesome.

No veo la hora de visitar!

As several others have noted, you can snorkel directly from the beach at Melones. My husband snorkeled there several times last year, as it is easy to get to by bike if you are in town. Carlos Rosario also offers great snorkeling, and the bike ride plus short hike make access pretty easy. If you camp at Flamenco then you just have the hike over the hill to get to Carlos Rosario and Tamarindo. Punto Soldado is good for snorkeling also, but the last part of the bike ride is rough.

Dick and Cathie rent bikes for $17 a day, and we were pleased with them last year. Dick met us at the ferry dock and gave us a ride to the place we were renting, plus a quick tour of town.

We walked through the campground at Flamenco and it looked nice, but since we didn't camp others can give you much better advice I'm sure.

"beach, snorkel, and explore the island" in a half day?

Did I read that correctly?
