Highlights
    What to Expect
    Upon departing marina in Ceiba, you'll head straight out to Culebra along the Cordillera Islands. After about 45 minutes on a high-speed power boat, you'll arrive at one of Culebra’s most beautiful reefs and anchor there for about an hour and a half to enjoy some snorkeling. Depending on the water conditions, your captain may take you to Luis Pena, Carlos Rosario, or Melones.

    Lunch will be served at approximately 11:30am - 12:00pm. You'll savor local pastries, build your own sandwiches with fresh baked bread, relish fresh fruit, a signature pasta salad, a chicken salad, coleslaw and cookies.

     

    Then, you'll move on to your next beach stop. The usual destination is Flamenco beach, but occasionally (based on water/weather conditions) you maybe taken to Culebrita, Playa Tortuga or another gorgeous beach to enjoy the rest of the afternoon. There, you'll have the option of swimming, snorkeling or simply relaxing.
