Great idea! I'll be down there with a group of buddies, also.
We came in 2001/2002, and 2003/2004. The first time there were two Latin bands set up in the plaza next to the ferry dock. They took turns playing, with one being popular Puerto Rican music and the other being more jazzy. They had nice fireworks, albeit about 15 minutes early (the only instance that "island time" was ahead of actual time, in my experience!) The last time, they had moved the party to the ball field behind El Batey, because of the construction in the plaza. I ended up at a private party for the early part of the evening, and by the time I got to the public celebration, the place was packed, so I watched the fireworks from our upstairs balcony.
One very iportant thing: I've been told that this is absolutely the busiest time in culebra. Make reservations ASAP!
