Culebra, Puerto Rico

Hello! A group of my friends and I are planning a trip in August to go camping on Culebra. I just wanted to know if anybody had any suggestions about things to take and what to do. We are going to be at least a group of six (mostly cuban, with one puerto rican), all 21 and 22 year old college students. We are on a budget. Also if anybody knew of a moderately priced hotel ($75-150) in San Juan and Fajardo for us to stay at for one night each (Fajardo the night before we go to the island and San Juan the night before we leave Puerto Rico). And any suggestions on things to do at each location would be welcome. Thanks!

The Hotel Milano in Old San Juan was reasonable.
Casa Matheisan (near the airport)
La Playa (near the airport)

I camp at Culebra every year. What to do depends on what you like. The coral reefs are beautiful if you like snorkling. I'm always on a budget, too. Remember that you have to carry all the stuff from where the van leaves you to the site. This year [in two weeks] I've decided to bring a mid-size colapsible cooler on wheels [From Sam's Club] with me from NJ and bring it to the island empty. Once off the ferry, I'll fill it with ice, beer and soda and bring it to the site. It's also a good idea to bring sizable backpacks. It's a cheap and short trip to town to refill the cooler when necessary. Food? I plan to bring quick foods [tuna, etc] that I'll buy here [they're expensive there] and make a run into town for a hot meal when needed. That's probably the best [and cheapest] way to go. Overall, the most pressing need I experinced was the craving for cold drink.
