With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
You'll get in some beach time at Flamenco Beach and Zoni Beach. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Museo Historico de Culebra and Culebrita Lighthouse. There's still lots to do: head off the coast to Culebrita Island, enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Punta Soldado Beach, and discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

For photos, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Culebra trip planner .

Isla de Vieques, Puerto Rico

Isla de Vieques ©
For sixty years until 2003, most of the Isla de Vieques was closed off to the public, with the US Navy using the island's beaches and surrounding waters for drills and testing of new military machinery, such as bombs.
Relax by the water at Sun Bay Beach and Media Luna Beach. Escape the urban bustle at La Chiva and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Isabel Segunda, delve into the distant past at El Hombre de Puerto Ferro, get interesting insight from Tours, and take some stellar pictures from Puerto Ferro Lighthouse.
