I have just read that the rain season tends to be from May to November, with most rains in September, October and November.

Does anyone have ever been there during these months? Is is possible that the whole day is rain?

We gonna spend there only 3 days and are scared if our vacation will be marred by rain:(.

I just came back from Culebra. It does not rain the whole day. It's usully early evening for 5-10 min. But right now, there are a lot of mosquitos due to rains. Culebrita has more mosuquitos and you may stay away from the island. (But Tortuga Beach is better than Flamenco Beach.)

Last week the weather was great, it rained one day out of the four days we were there, but it was a welcome relief and a nice start for a hike. I will concurr that the mosquitos were quite bad. Use a lot of repellant.

When I was there (Oct 26-Oct 30), Culebra was sprayed with insecticides, so it was okay. I am not sure if Culebrita will be sprayed ever. We used a lot of repellant. But there are so many mosquitoes in Culebrita and we ended up eating our lunch in the water. (Still, mosquitoes come up over our heads and once in a while, we need to put our heads into the water. We were forced to stay in the water more than 3 hours until water taxi picked us up. Our shoulders were burned up completely.) When the water taxi arrived, he came early and brought his family to enjoy swimming. But they even could not stay there for 5 min. I did not know mosquitoes would attack them even though they did not got to the sand or under the trees. The mosquitoes even followed us for a while even after we left there with motor boat.
I saw other motor boats leaving the island with hi-speed like us. I am just glad I did not get any disease from those mosquitoes. For isolated island like Culebrita, there is no spray (I believe). So only trade winds will get rid of mosquitoes from Culebrita. If I am wrong, let me know.
