Food & Groceries on Culebra
Culebra, Puerto Rico

I am curious about the grocery situation on Culebra. I've been getting a lot of conflicting reports. Some have said that bringing food to the island is "ridiculous" because the grocery situation has improved a lot over the past 5 or 6 years. Others say to bring groceries over. There are 6 of us staying at a house and we plan on cooking in every night, so we don't want to get stuck with a limited cooking menu (ie steaks and fish, which is what a lot of sites seem to talk about when it comes to groceries on the island).

We were thinking of renting a car and driving to Fajardo to get the ferry. The person who owns the house we're renting said you can drop off a rental car at Fajardo for a drop off fee.

Does anyone know of good supermarkets on the way from San Juan to Fajardo? Also, any good places to buy wine (which i also heard is expensive on the island)? And is liquor (rum, vodka, tequila) expensive to get on the island?

Also, how reliable is the ferry service? We're coming on on a Sunday and it says there is a passenger ferry leaving Fajardo at 6:30pm (the last one). But when I told this to the guy at the car rental place I called on Culebra he kind of laughed and said the ferry service was unreliable.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
