I'm a first time visitor to Culebra and a first time poster. I've been reading topics on the forum and they have been very helpful, but I'm also a big planner and hoping for a little bit of clarification.
We are arriving via VAL on Sunday afternoon, March 18 and staying at Culebra Beach Rentals for four nights. I am assuming we can pick up groceries in town on foot and then take a publico to where we are staying. Is that a safe assumption?
We are looking forward to snorkeling while we are on Culebra and it sounds like Flamenco beach where we are staying is not the best place on the island for snorkeling. Can we get a publico or taxi from Culebra Beach Rentals to Tamarindo or another snorkeling beach?
If we wanted to do a day sail/snorkel trip, can those be booked in town when we arrive, or should I try to arrange those before we arrive?
If we want to rent a jeep for a day, can that be booked when we arrive, or should I arrange before?
In the evening, if we want to have dinner in town, can we get a publico or other inexpensive transportation from Culebra Beach Rentals?
Obviously my primary questions are about transportation on the island and I have read the "getting around" section on the website, but I'm still a little confused.
Thanks for your help!
