Hurricane Dorian just passed our islands leaving them unscathed. Of course we will be sailing in the good season, just pleasant tradewinds in March.
From the charter company …
“Sparkling beaches, such as La Perla and Flamenco, wrap around the main island’s forests and towns, and cover the many smaller surrounding islands. With so many uninhabited islands, there’s plenty of unspoiled paradise for you to discover.
Explore the Mona Island, the “Galapagos of the Caribbean”, UNESCO forts and, of course, try the delicious local rum and piña coladas. If you love wildlife, there are 20 beautiful forests, such as El Yunque National Forest with 20 species of orchid. La Coca waterfall is worth a visit, as are the bioluminescent bays where the waters glow as you swim. If you are a foodie, order mofongo, a mound of mashed fried plantains and one of Puerto Rico’s most famous dishes.”
Recommended Itinerary …
Day 1: Transfer from San Juan Airport to our base at Puerto Del Rey Marina and get acquainted with your boat before grabbing a bite to eat nearby.
Day 2: Sail to Culebra, Ensenada Honda, the largest inlet, and look out for turtles. Walk around the town, eat like a local and drink rum.
Day 3: Sail to uninhabited, wild island, Culebrita, a nature reserve. Eat lunch on Tortuga Beach, turtle beach, a breeding ground for sea turtles and one of six beaches on the island. Make for Las Pelas for overnight anchorage, near Pelaíta, Culebra.
Day 4: Sail to Cayo Luis Pena, offshore Culebra, which is a nature reserve but you can swim and snorkel. You’ll find this is less visited and a peaceful haven, but bring your own food as there aren’t any facilities. Head back to Las Pelas for overnight.
