Our first trip to Culebra was in 2002. We went camping to Flamenco Beach with friends from college during the “Justas” (the annual interuniversity sports tournament) and has since become an annual trip I make every month of April to celebrate my birthday. From being single to married without children, then with my pregnant wife and now, with my children, our travels to Culebra have been uninterrupted. We’ve invited siblings, parents, friends from work and neighbors to our trips to Culebra and have stayed in hotels and villas, but what we love most is camping in Flamenco.
Camping in Flamenco Beach is a unique experience we recommend to all. The campground, managed by ACDEC (Conservation and Development Authority of Culebra), has excellent maintenance and safety. Camping just steps away from the beach in a lush area where you are enthralled by the sounds of the sea and the birds, means being happy and in harmony with nature; it’s completely relaxing. Our camping experiences have evolved from being in a two-person tent, a sleeping bag and two carts loaded on the passenger ferry, to traveling with our car and a tent for ten people, an elevated inflatable mattress and even a bathroom tent.
A camping trip to Culebra has become our family tradition. Our children of five and three years speak of Culebra, they remember and miss it. The images of such paradise cover the walls of our home and are part of my video blog on my YouTube channel “josemariel” and “piccolomondopr”. We hope that these experiences of camping with our children will shape better human beings, nature lovers, and conscious of its conservation. We hope that Culebra is preserved as this peaceful and beautiful paradise where pollution has no space, and where blue splendor remains unlikely ever to become gray.
