once you leave the city, I mean NYC or another US city that offers photo equipment rental it is nearly impossible to find places that rent equipment.
Culebra is NOT the place for equipment rental, purchase, repair, etc., even finding film other that the Kodak film of the week is impossible. I have spent many months in Culebra at a time for the past few years, and photograph regularly. I tried processing film nearby (Fajardo and SJ) and now I mail everything back to NYC and order everything from NYC...
Even in Vienna, Austria which is a mega city in Europe, when I tried last summer to rent photo equipment for a shoot, I was insulted. They felt offended that I would ask for such a thing rather than buy the equipment outright.
The monopod is a great idea!
Have fun shooting in Culebra
