Culebra Food

Food in Culebra is, because of the isolation from the 'main island' and the lack of agriculture, somewhat different from the 'main island' of Puerto Rico. Most people have a small garden where they grow their own mangos, papayas, guineos (bananas) and citrus.

There is a variety of places to eat out though. They range from sidewalk frituras ($1 to $2.50) from a kiosko (=food truck} to restaurants with their own chef, averaging $50 - $80 per person, and some in between.

Culebra Food: Mango

Puerto Rican cooking has Spanish, African, Arawak and Ta�no influences, using ingredients like coriander, papaya, cacao, nispero, apio, plantains, and yampee. Locals call their cuisine "cocina criolla".
