Town Of Dewey Rentals
A number of available lodging will be Dewey rentals. If you have to define the nerve center of Culebra, the maintown of Dewey is it.
This is where it's happening, which is why the locals (many of whom are expatriates from the United States) refer fondly to it as "Da Town". Adjust your expectations when you get to Dewey, this is a slow-moving little town with just enough "action" for the resident locals.
The town of Dewey was named after Admiral George Dewey of the U.S. Navy.
