WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU FLY INSTEAD OF TAKING THE FERRY TO CULEBRA.

FLYING IS FASTER AND RELATIVELY HASSLE FREE.


BY PASSENGER FERRY:

Passenger tickets can be purchased online up to one to three weeks in advance at www.porferry.com or in person, at the ticket office. That website also posts the schedule and luggage charges.

Ferries to/from Culebra depart from the port town of Ceiba, Puerto Rico. The port of Ceiba is 1.25 hours from San Juan International Airport (SJU) under light traffic conditions, and 2.5 hours on rush times. A taxi (or “publico van”)  is readily available as you exit the airport in San Juan; $90-100 for the trip for your family group. UBER, when available, would be somewhat cheaper.

Passenger ferries are fast (45 minutes). The cargo ferries take 1.5 - 2.0 hours, and also carry passengers.  The present one-way subsidized fare is $2.25 + book fees, per person, and is expected to increase soon to about $11.00.

We strongly recommend that you purchase the ferry tickets online in advance to avoid lines at the ticket office and assure there is space for you. They sell online up to 40 % of the ferry boat capacity, thus if they run out of online tickets, you might still be able to buy at the ticket office.

You should take the PASSENGER ferry, which lands at the dock in town (Dewey, Culebra), while most of the CARGO ferries would land at a dock at San Ildefonso, away from town (Dewey).

If you are flying to PR from the U.S. or from abroad and want to take the ferry to Culebra to check-in at Tamarindo Estates on the same day, you would need to land into San Juan, PR not later than 12:15 PM. This would normally allow sufficient time to pick up your luggage and take the taxi to the Ceiba ferry dock. The last boat available, as of this writing, to arrive on time for check in at the hotel departs Ceiba port at 3:00 PM. However, if your plane from the U.S. or abroad arrives San Juan in the late afternoon, you might still able to book a flight to Culebra late in the afternoon.

We recommend that you do not rent a car on the main island of PR to take on the cargo ferry to Culebra. Bookings for cars on the cargo ferry are very limited, insurance may not cover if you take car on the ferry, and you would not be able to get roadside assistance on Culebra from the rental company. It is highly recommended that you first get to Culebra without a car and rent a car from the local Culebra companies.  


BY PLANE:

Most of the airplanes to Culebra depart from San Juan Isla Grande Airport (SIG), some depart from San Juan International Airport (SJU), and they take only about 35 minutes from San Juan. The flight from Ceiba to Culebra takes about 12 minutes. Flights between San Juan and Culebra are about $90 pp each way and between Ceiba and Culebra $50 pp each way. For airline schedules, please call the airlines or visit their websites.
