I was in Culebra in mid-September 2008 and had a terrible time with jellyfish. I know they were mostly moon jellyfish, but we were not able to enjoy snorkeling at Carlos Rosario or Tamarindo that time because we were constantly avoiding droves of jellies. There were also occasional tiny stinging organisms that left small stings on our arms and legs, but these were actually less of a hassle than the omnipresent moon jellies, which we sometimes had to swim UNDER because they had us trapped at the surface.
Anyways, I am planning to go to Culebra in late August/early September of this year and was wondering about the jellyfish situation. Was our previous experience a fluke? Was it related to something else than the time of year (unusual weather patterns, cycle of moon, etc)?
