Hiking

Culebra Island, tucked away from the modern world, is a beautiful natural preserve.  Virtually any path you choose has the potential for an interesting adventure.  If you climb to the summit of Mount Resaca, you can catch a glimpse of the entire island and its opposing shorelines.   Conclude your hike to Brava or Resaca Beach with a refreshing swim. Carlos Rosario and Tamerindo great for a snorkel at the end of the trail.

Molly Surrena

Hi, I’m Molly and about 10 years ago I moved to Culebra from my home in Western Pennsylvania.  It was always my dream to start a guesthouse in the Caribbean.  Now that dream has come to fruition, I do my best to make sure my guests enjoy their stay as much as possible.  Culebra’s a small island and a perfect place for you to relax and SLOW DOWN.  Explore, learn, and most of all, have fun!

Travel Tips & FAQ’s

Getting to Culebra
You can take a ferry out of Fajardo.  It’s only $4.50 for a round trip ticket but make sure to get there early, tickets sell out quickly.  You can try to make a reservation in advance by calling the Fajardo Ticket office at 787-494-0934.  If  you book an accommodation with me well enough in advance I will be happy to get you tickets and send them to you.  It will be necessary to send a deposit with a self addressed stamped envelope with your Dates, ferry times and number of tickets, include $2.25 per ticket.

The other option is to take a plane out of  Isla Grande Airport.  A Short taxi ride from SJU.  A plane is more pricey but is usually worth it.  You can book reservations on line with Vieques Air Link  and Air Flamenco.   Cape Air is soon to Charter flights out of San Juan, you can check them to see what they have available.

Getting around the island
I’d recommend golf cart rentals.  Jeeps and cars are available but are a bit of an overkill.

  • Jerrys Jeeps – (787)742-0587
  • Carlos Jeep Rental (787)742-3514
  • Culebra UTV Carts (787)525-5456
  • Dicks Volkswagon Things and Bike Rental (787)742-0062
  • Culebra Bike Rental, etc.

Bikes “work” but be prepared for a workout!

How to I get to Casita Tropical?
I’ll pick you up from the airport or ferry dock as long as you call me in advance and when you arrive.  I can also give you a lift back when it’s time:)

When do I pay?
All guests pay balance at arrival, though I do require a deposit to reserve your room.  I prefer paypal (through which you can use your credit card) but you can also mail me a check. There may be extra fees with PayPal deposit via credit card.  There is a  30 day cancilation for deposit refund.  If because of mechanical or weather reasons there is no transportation to island during your stay, full refund will be issued.

What are the check-in & check out times?
Check-in:  3pm.  Check-out:  11am.

How can I help you, Molly?
Rave about me on Tripadvisor — at least that’s what I’d advise!
