Culebra: Planning Group Activities for Wedding Guests

tubingIf you’re visiting Culebra Island in Puerto Rico for a destination wedding, make a list of things you definitely want to see and do while you’re there.

It’s really a once in a lifetime opportunity to go to the Caribbean, so you want to make the most of your trip!

Culebra is nice because it’s not touristy like a few other cities in Puerto Rico.

There are no big chains or corporations. Even though it’s not as developed as some islands, that makes it more enjoyable in some ways. You’ll appreciate the peacefulness!

Guided Tours

Sometimes when you’re in a place you’ve never been before, it’s nice to take tours so that you can learn from the experts what you’re actually seeing. One of the top attractions in Culebra is Culebra Island Adventures, which is a boat tour.

On this boat tour you’ll swim with turtles, sea rays and different fish through corals while being guided by a professional. You’ll be able to see the wildlife as you kayak and snorkel. This tour is said to be a “must do” while in Culebra!

If you enjoy kayaking, check out Aquafari (Kayaking Puerto Rico). It’s said to be the best kayaking and snorkeling in Culebra! A few locations you’ll get to see are Tamarindo Beach and Luis Pena Marine Reserve. Snacks and drinks are included, as well as photo album of your adventure! This is a great keepsake.

Love to jet ski? Try Culebra Eco Tours! You’re able to experience the island in an entirely different way. The guide will also teach you all about the history of Culebra, which makes it educational and fun all at the same time.

During the tour you’ll usually stop for a swim. You might even see some turtles, fish and other sea life. Consider packing a waterproof camera for this activity! It’s been said to be the highlight of traveler’s entire vacation in Culebra.

Best Beach

If you’re looking for the best beach in Culebra, check out Flamenco Beach. It’s in a cove with almost no waves, which makes for a nice relaxing swim. The water is crystal clear and you can see fish from the shore!

Culebrita is another “must see” beach! It will truly take your breath away. Once you’re on this small island, you can walk to a lighthouse. You can take a boat from Culebra to this incredible island! It’s not usually crowded, which makes you feel like you’re on a private island with just your close friends and family.


Looking for an activity to help you relax besides just lying on the beach? Try some beach yoga! Culebra Yoga is very popular and offers classes for all levels. Choose from an afternoon or evening class.

Hearing the sounds of the waves and taking some time out of a busy week to just breath, will really help you relax on your entire vacation. If the bride of the destination wedding is feeling stressed before the wedding day, bring her to yoga! You really can’t beat the setting.

Water Activities
