Day trip: Culebra. After 5 years in Puerto Rico we finally headed to Culebra for the day. Culebra is an island 15 miles east off of Puerto Rico, and it's absolutly gorgeous. We did not get lucky with the wind, but we're pretty sure we discovered an insane kiting spot! The plan is to wait for a really windy forecast (the wind gets lighter the further east you go) and go back there... for a few days this time!
