CulebraCulebra 

“The Last Spanish Virgin”

Culebra’s series of bays, peninsulas, and bars create a long and intricate shoreline, some of which end in abrupt cliffs, sandy shores, or mangrove forests. The principal harbor, Ensenada Honda, is considered to be one of the most secure hurricane harbors in the Caribbean. The topography of Culebra is irregular with low elevation hills. Mount Resaca is the tallest hill on the island at 650 ft.

Spanish Virgin Island – Location

The island of Culebra lies approximately 17 miles east of Puerto Rico, 12 miles west of St. Thomas and 9 miles north of Vieques. Its total area, including surrounding Cays, is 7,000 acres

However, no need to bring serious rain gear as you will get too hot wearing it. Just be prepared to get wet or hang back and read for 10 minutes until it stops.

ViequesVieques

The island is a true paradise, at least for those seeking solitude, world-class food and accommodations, and sugary-white-sand beaches that make Maui’s look like overbooked gravel quarries.

Vieques lies about 8 miles (13 km) to the east of the Puerto Rican mainland, and measures approximately 21 miles (34 km) long by 4 miles (6 km) wide. The two main towns of Vieques are Isabel Segunda (sometimes written “Isabel II”), the administrative center located on the northern side of the island, and Esperanza, located on the southern side. At peak, the population of Vieques is around 10,000.

The island’s name is a Spanish spelling of a Native American word said to mean “small island”. It also has the nickname “Isla Nena”, usually translated from the Spanish as “Little Girl Island”, as a reference to its being perceived as Puerto Rico’s little sister island.
