Culebra Camping is definitely your option if you love to be in contact with nature and/or if you are a budget traveler.
What better way would there be to fully enjoy one of the best beaches of the Caribbean and perhaps, of the world? Yes, you can go camping to Flamenco Beach. In fact, camping is only permitted at this beach on Culebra island.
But there are a few things you need to know before you pack, so keep on reading..
Reservations are usually not needed to go Culebra camping but if you’re coming on a holiday or during summer and want to make sure you have a space then you can call (787)742-0700. They charge $30.00 dollars per tent and per night for up to a maximum of 6 people.
If there is someone in the group with a physical disability or who is older than 60 years (that can prove it with an identification!), then they will charge you $10 dollars per night, per tent for 6 people.
The office is located at the entrance of the beach to the right side.
Check in begins at 8:00 a.m. and check out is at 4:00 p.m.
The campground has: showers, bathrooms (pack toilet paper just in case!), potable water cisterns, BBQ pits, security guards, and even a basketball court.
There’s no electricity on the camping areas, only at the basketball court. You can charge there your cell phone or any other electronic device, but you cannot connect extensions because they will be removed.
There are five camping areas designated with a letter, from letter A to E.
Although the areas have been classified like this, the management reserves the right to assign the camping area for you.
If you are not in the mood of cooking, there’s no need to worry. There are several food stands or kiosks at the entrance of the campground were you can buy something to eat.
If you would like to go to town and eat at a restaurant you can do that too. If you don’t have a car or didn’t rented one (or a golf cart, scooter or bike) then you can use the service of a bus or taxi.
They are usually parked at the entrance of the beach up to around 5:00 p.m. If you want to go to town later than 5:00 p.m., just make sure that you collect a few telephone numbers from the bus drivers to call them later. Or make an arrangement with one of them during daytime.
Nobody’s perfect and Culebra isn’t either. Our #1 enemy is very small but very persistent: mosquitoes. They’ve been a problem ever since the first colonizers arrived to Culebra.
They are typically more abundant during the sunrise and the sunset hours and after periods or rainy days. The government usually takes care of them by fumigating all over, but don’t just rely on this.
Grab different kinds of insect repellents (area repellents and personal repellents) especially the strongest ones, and bring them with you. That way you’ll have a peaceful and joyful Culebra camping experience.
