We stayed 4 nights in Culebra from March 3rd- March7th 2007. Posada la hamaca was PERFECT. I mean I'm reading some of these people's reviews and they must have stayed at a different place than I did. Six of my friends and I went to Culebra for Spring Break and had the most incredible time.
Posada la Hamaca is nice man. All the appliances were new. Everything was very clean. It was plenty of room for all 7 of us. It had 4 full beds. Everyday they had a cooler for us to us with fresh towels. I mean for all that and the location you can't beat $200 a night 7 ways. And once again LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.
We arrived in Culebra at the airport around 5pm. Took a taxi into town for $2 a person. Santo (the dudes name) gave us his card and for the 5 days drove us anywhere we wanted to go for $2 dollars. Every time we called him he was there in less than 5 mins, no joke.
The location is amazing I mean you are 30 seconds from 2 grocery stores, a liquor store, Mamacita's (the best restaurant we went to the entire time), Dingy Docks (the best bar we went to the entire time), Pan Deli (the best cheap place to eat breakfast or lunch), and in the heart of anything relevant in the town of Dewey.
We spent our first day at Flamenco and still can't believe what we saw. I mean I have looked at the pictures every hour on the hour since we have gotten back. We spent most the day there and then spent the night at the bar of Mamacitas enjoying live music. Then we went to Dingy Docks where the nice people of Mamacitas go when they close to drink. We had an awesome time the owner of Dingy Docks was giving us free shots and sitting there talking with us giving us tips about where to go and what to do.
The second day we went to Carlos Rosario Beach for snorkeling and once again still can't even believe what we saw. We had seen 20+ pound fish tropical blue, neon green, and pink. I mean it was nuts. We spent most of the day there. And went to Dingy Dock's for dinner. Dingy Docks is awesome for lunch and breakfast but don't really waste your time for dinner. They had good food but an insanely small variety considering what they have for breakfast and lunch.
The third day we spent most of the day at the Wildlife refuge snorkeling. Once again it was really cool. There were plenty of beautiful coral and insanely colored plant life. If you want to see insane fish head to Carlos Rosario (haha which you have to walk through an old mine field to get to) but if u want to see incrediable coral the refuge is your place.
The fourth day we called Santo and he took us to Zoni for $5 dollars a pop. Once again almost as beautiful as Flamenco but no one around. It was a mile of beach and excluding us there may have been 7 people. Side note though if you do head there haha tell the taxi driver when you want to be picked up because we all had cell phones and all had service but none of it worked even though we had bars. We had to walk a hilly 1/2 mile before it went through. The beach was also just insane. It redefines natural beauty.
On the fifth day we caught the ferry out to Fajardo and then to Vieques. By the way the ferry is the cheapest thing ever and a beautiful ride. My girlfriend and I decided to buy tickets to Fajardo and then to Vieques all from the port in Culebra for both of us combine... it was $4.00. By far the best value of the trip. Its a smooth hour ferry both ways and it was nothing but enjoyable.
