We enjoyed our stay, nice amenities, but meeting the hosts and other guests turned out to be the highlight of our trip. We met folks from North America, South American, Europe, Puerto Rico and Asia and had some great times laughing together on the back deck in those warm

Great place to stay with a perfect location and some beautiful human beings as hosts. Has everything you need to enjoy your vacation at the island of Culebra. Would stay here every other time I visit the island.

That is the way I felt during an 8 day stay in May. Susan is the ideal hostess and great source of island information including the best places to eat and the best beaches to swim and snorkel . Go early to see the most fish and huge turtles. The Palmetto is very close to

We arrived before check in, but Susan was very friendly and welcomed us. Also, we were informed of the best places to eat and visit (all excellent). Susan also allowed us to leave our bags in the lobby and, upon returning from the beach, the bags were already in our room. The

Room was comfortable but very small. Guesthouse is out of town which contributes to its being quieter but a bit far for walking back and forth from restaurants which seem to be mostly in town. Very convenient if you rent a golf cart or car. Beach towels provided, along with

The island is only 7 miles long and 4 miles wide but your best bet is to rent a golf cart. Beaches are about 20 minutes ..and the airport is a 7 minute walk from the guest house

Hello, Flights are available from SJU on Cape Air and Air Flamenco and Isla Grande Airport is just a 20 minute taxi ride away and flights are less expensive. Vieques Air Link and Air Flamenco fly from this airport as well. May is not considered high season, so the ferry is a good option. You can book a taxi in advance with Al (787-590-9001) for around $60 for 2 people. Ferry tickets for Culebra are purchased on the day you travel. The 9am ferry is the busiest ferry and often sells out with many people in line (even if they got in line at 6am), so I recommend travelers come to Culebra on the 3pm ferry instead. There is nothing to do at the ferry dock, so it is better to plan something enjoyable for the morning and to go to the ferry dock after lunch. Best Wishes, Susan Moran, Owner

which is the best way to go by air or ferry??
Good Morning. I am sorry for the lateness of this reply. I answered it the first time it came into my mailbox, however for some reason the answer did not go through. Flying in my opinion is the best way to travel to Culebra. It is fast and the scenery is beautiful. It does cost more, but the time that is saved does seem worth it to me. Riding the Ferry The ride to Fajardo to catch the ferry is at least 1 hour. Arriving early to buy tickets takes at least 1 1/2 hours, but up to 3 or more hours. The ferry ride takes at least 1 1/4 hour but up to 2 hours, depending upon the weather and the boat. If the ferry leaves late this adds more time to the trip. Flying The flight takes 30 minutes from SJU or Isla Grande airport. There are may flights a day which can add to your wait time, but often it is not more than 2 hours. Which you need at least 1 hour to change planes. I hope this helps. Check out the following airlines: Air Flamenco Vieques Airlink Cape Air Best Regards, Susan Moran Owner, Palmetto Guesthouse

"The more expensive rooms are larger than the cheaper ones."
"Book Early!"
"Take the queen bed room at the front entrance if you prefer a bit more quite and private."
"Room with the king size bed. I think it was Plumeria."
"bouganvillia room is the most private and better access to backyard"
