Tamarindo Estates is the best rental deal in Culebra. Though this is not a luxurious place, we offer the luxury of seclusion. At the same time, we are an easy 5 minutes from town, restaurants, grocery stores, or in the other direction, the popular Flamenco Beach. Click here for location images.
Tamarindo Estates is a beachfront property that offers serenity, beautiful ocean views, and private access to the best walk-in snorkeling. Avoid being lodged where you are surrounded by noisy neighbors, streets, airport noise, and passing cars. Rather, choose to be surrounded by a 60-acre estate of undeveloped natural greenery on a secure, gated, beautiful property. We offer superiority in cleanliness, as well as caretakers that live on the property, available 24/7 to make your stay enjoyable.Our hosts are waiting to make you part of our ever growing family of repeat guests.
OUR RENTAL APARTMENTS AND SURROUNDINGS:The remarkable TAMARINDO ESTATES BEACH APTS. is a quiet, small, nicely secluded inn (yet an easy 5-minute drive to town) of only twelve 1-BR apartments in the midst of 60 acres of virgin, undeveloped greenery by Tamarindo beach. You may enjoy great views from the apt.'s roofed deck and patios, and easy walk-in to a world-class reef, ideal to get away from the norm of everyday living and enjoy a refreshing change of pace. Each apartment provides clean, basic, rustic accommodations with its own private kitchen. We do not provide any luxury. What we do offer, in the way of luxury, is 60 acres of luxurious, undeveloped greenery on the ocean with spectacular views and stunning sunsets. We offer security, a gated entrance, and we have, housed here on the property, caretakers that are on call at all times, to care for guests needs.
Each of the 480 sq. ft. (45 sq. mt.) apts. has a/c in the bedroom, flat screen TV, ceiling fans, screened windows and door, private bathroom with shower, kitchen with electric cooktop, refrigerator-freezer, microwave oven, coffee maker, toaster, silverware, cookware, towels, and bed linen.

We also provide a private beach-house for guests to take shade, read a book, relax or whatever while on the beach, with restroom facilities. The rental apartments are a bit farther inland, in the hilly vegetated interior, affording gorgeous views of the ocean and other cays.
Another rental option is the 2-BR, 2-Bath (Double-sized) Apt.- For families with teens that want larger accommodations we could rent 2 adjoining-connecting 1-BR apts.

CULEBRA ISLAND INFORMATION:
|There are no passports or visas necessary for U.S. citizens arriving directly to Culebra Island or Puerto Rico from the United States. U.S. citizens can travel between Puerto Rico and the United States without going through immigration or customs check points. Culebra is one of Puerto Rico's off-shore islands, 10 miles square in area and 17 miles east of Puerto Rico. It is located midway between P.R. and St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. Presently there are about 3000 residents on the island. Culebra was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493 and was under the Spanish flag until 1898 when it became part of the United States. Presently, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico enjoys a special status of self-government under the U.S. flag. Culebra is an unspoiled divers' and beachcombers' paradise, also coveted by bird watchers. Culebra Island is ideal for the nature conscious people.|
For visitors coming from
abroad, the fastest way to reach Culebra is via San
Juan, Puerto Rico. The flight from New York to San Juan
(SJU) takes 3 1/2 hours; from Miami to San Juan it's 1
1/2 hours. San Juan International Airport (SJU) is served
from the U.S. Mainland by American Airlines, Delta, US

There are basically two
ways of travelling from the 'Big Island' of Puerto Rico
to Culebra. You can either take an airplane or take the
passenger boat. Flying to Culebra is usually the most
hassle free option, and in 35 minutes you can get from
San Juan to Culebra. Flying in from San Juan to
Culebra is in most cases the only way to be able to
check in into your hotel the same day of your flight
from abroad. There are several daily flights arriving in
Culebra from San Juan Isla Grande Airport (SIG) on Air Flamenco
(787-724-6464) and on Vieques
Air Link (787-722-3736, 787-741-8331,
1-888-901-9247). Click here
for more airline
information and ferry schedules. WE RECOMMEND OUR VISITORS
TO FLY TO CULEBRA FROM MAINLAND PUERTO RICO, INSTEAD
OF TAKING THE BOAT.
Cost of boat vs.
flying in: If you are coming to Culebra from
San Juan, whether the boat or airplane is less expensive
would depend on the number of people in your party. The
boat between Fajardo to Culebra costs $2.25 each way,
and the San Juan-Fajardo taxi costs about $80 each way.
If you are a party of one person, flying in would be
cheaper by about $22.25 ($60 for plane vs. $82.25 for
the taxi + boat.) For a party of two people,
the plane would cost $35.50 more ($120 for the plane
less $84.50 for the taxi and boat.)
However, if you are flying in from abroad and want to take the passenger boat to Culebra to check-in at Tamarindo Estates that same day, you would need to land into San Juan not later than 12 Noon. This would normally allow sufficient time to get your luggage and then the taxi to the Fajardo ferry dock. The last boat you may take and still be able to check in at the hotel departs Fajardo at 3:00 PM.
