"One of two Spanish Virgin Islands" Culebra by chodearm

Culebra was just a slight mention in travels books. You hear about the army's presence, you hear about Flamenco Beach and its claim as second best beach in the world, and you hear that its closer to the Virgin Islands and is known as a Spanish Virgin Island. It seems that the mute nature people go about speaking of Culebra is to keep it as a secret place tucked away somewhere out there in the Caribbean. It seems that those who have had the luck of staying there may not want to share this slice of true paradise.
If you can stomach the ferry chaos in Farjardo you will be rewarded with something very different from the mainland. You will feel completely safe, you will feel the presence of the Carribean and you will be over-joyed that there are places in the world like this that still exist.
Culebra is only approximately 4miles by 7miles. So easily explorable by moped. Don't bring your car here and contribute to ruining something so precious. People come for the amazing snorkeling and for the beaches that define paradise.
This was my first real introduction to what lyes below the surface of Carribean Waters. I now understand the want to go deeper to see further. From the top looking down I would see something interesting, take a large breath and hurridly swim to the object, spend a second or two with it, than the salt content would spit me back to the top. Tiring. But I miss the underworld.
I love how this is not taken from standing inside a building looking at the water. That is what I look for in a beach,... more travel advice
