With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
Here are some ideas for day two: get lost in a book at Culebra Public Library and then kick back and relax at Flamenco Beach.

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.
Kick off your visit on the 7th (Thu): take in the waterfront at Malecon and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Sun Bay. Keep things going the next day: relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, then look for all kinds of wild species at Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, and then kick back and relax at La Chiva.

For maps, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Isla de Vieques trip maker app .
