More Culebra Information
We have presented more Culebra information here. As is the case with vacation destinations the size of Culebra, it is always prudent to have as much relevant information as possible to make one's vacation as enjoyable as possible.
So far, we have been reluctant to provide physical addresses, instead opting for descriptive addresses as most locals tend to utilize this method also when giving directions. You have no reason to worry though, virtually all lodging accommodations and car-rental agencies on the island distribute maps frequently. Also, getting more Culebra information while on the island is as simple as asking the host of your lodging accommodation.
For various reasons (its small size as one, maybe?), major crime is relatively rare here. That said, this is no declaration to leave your belongings unattended, especially cell phones as they have been known to disappear mysteriously. Just as you would not leave valuables in sight in your vehicle in any city, don't make it any easier for thieves here in Culebra either.
