Culebra take 3

After the day in Old San Juan, we headed east to Culebra.  We had two wonderful nights kicked off by the rising full moon on anchor at Bahia de Almodovar / Las Pelas.  In and around the bay, we were able to scare up quite a lot of sealife for the grandparents.  We were also able to explore the two cays that form part of the reef protecting the bay.  We’ve said this before, but in the center, they look like West Texas.

On Monday, we moved over to the main harbor on Culebra, Ensenada Honda and managed make it to Zaco’s Tacos when they were open.  We had to be back in Puerto del Rey on Tuesday afternoon, so we stopped at Caya Luis Pena for a few hours in the morning to snorkel.  The reef was the biggest that we’ve seen though most of the structure was dead or bleached coral.  Still, there were a lot of fish and some really nice soft corals and sea fans.

Of course, the kids don’t mind snorkeling on a weekday in the winter.
