My wife and I were just in Culebra (we left July 3), and out of 9 days of snorkeling, we saw jellyfish only one morning. I went ahead and snorkeled for about 30 minutes just off Tamarindo Beach. Nancy didn't like the jellyfish, so she skipped on it that morning. There were a lot just off the shore that morning, but I didn't think it was so bad. We never saw jellyfish except for that one morning. They seem to be the exception rather than the rule.
We never saw any rays of any kind, which we thought was unusual (we were looking for them); we mentioned this to other snorkelers and they didn't see any either.
As for mosquitoes, you'll need to bring some deet (or equivalent) for the evenings and for hiking on the paths to some of the beaches.
If you're into swimming and sunning, the sand beaches on Culebra are very, very nice. You won't be disappointed.
