From everything I had read on Tripadvisor, I knew I really wanted to take my family of five to Flamenco Beach during our one-week stay on the main island of Puerto Rico. The big decision was whether to take the ferry or to fly from Fajardo. I opted to fly and, although this increased the cost of the day considerably, am extremely glad we did, as the result was one of the most memorable vacation days of our lives! I booked our flight on Flamenco Air five days before when I was reasonably sure we would have good weather. The airport was easy to find from our condo in San Juan, following directions on the Internet. We had the first flight of the morning and called for a taxi when we arrived at the airport on Culebra. The best part of the day was being the first people to arrive on Flamenco Beach, so we had it to ourselves for almost two hours! We walked from one end to another, taking many wonderful photos. It is truly beautiful! We rented chairs and umbrellas when they became available around 10 am and shortly thereafter many people started arriving (from the ferry). The people provided a different atmosphere as we all enjoyed the beach. There was plenty of room for everyone. The water was warm, clear and perfect for snorkeling. We brought along a couple pairs of goggles and masks which we shared, so did not have to bother trying to rent these on the island. I am so glad we did this! Good food was available at the entrance. In the afternoon our teenage children took the trail to Rosario Beach and enjoyed snorkeling there as well--they had this beach to themselves for most of the time. At mid-afternoon our taxi driver returned to take us back to the airport. We had a fantastic meal at La Estacion in Fajardo, ending our perfect day in paradise. This day was definitely the highlight of our Puerto Rican vacation!
