Culebra - Getting Here
Part of the Culebra experience is getting to the island. It's not simple, but it's not hard and it's part of what gives the island its "off the beaten path" credentials.

When dealing with any of the travel vendors listed be sure to be persistant, and if they don't answer the phone call back in an hour or two. If they answer the phone in Spanish you can politely say "hablas ingles?" and they almost always will convert to English.
