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 a location image.

Tamarindo Estates is a beachfront property that offers serenity, beautiful ocean views, and private access to the best walk-in snorkelingAvoid 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.

CULEBRA ISLAND INFORMATION:

TRANSPORTATION TO CULEBRA ISLAND:
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 Airways, Continental, Northwest, Spirit Air, and United.

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 a major scale, Vieques Air Link (787-722-3736, 787-741-8331, 1-888-901-9247).
Click here for more airline information and ferry schedules.

Taking the boat from Fajardo is in most cases less expensive. 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.
