On the east coast of Puerto Rico is the city and gem Fajardo. It’s a sunny paradise that attracts visitors from all over looking to relax in the heat and enjoy some of the fantastic nature and eco-tours available. It’s known as the city that guards the sun of the Caribbean, with plenty of warm weather and perfect conditions for catching a tan.
The best time of year to visit Fajardo is during the springtime, from April through June, before the oppressive humidity and hurricane season descends upon this part of the Caribbean. Winter months of December through the end of March are expensive due to spring break and holiday travel with northerners escaping the cold. If you’re traveling during hurricane season, it’s a good idea to invest in travel insurance in case you need to cancel your trip.
To get to Fajardo, catch a flight to the airport in capital city San Juan. From here, it’s a 45-minute drive. Taxis are reasonable on Puerto Rico, but renting a car is also helpful for getting around Driving is intense, so be vigilant when driving on the highways. Fajardo itself is a small enough city to maneuver on foot or by taxis easily.
If you want a real captain that is extremely experienced and knows the waters, this is your Captain! Captain Mik put in the work to make our experience extremely memorable. I requested her services for a proposal and she worked with me to get me to an island that was very private. Everything turned out amazing and on top of that, she is an amazing Chef! Her first mate even caught a Huge fish on the way to the island that we had for dinner with a freshly made mango sauce that I honestly can't even begin to describe how ridiculously amazing it tasted. From the sea to the plate, it doesn't get any fresher than that! Mostly what made me choose Mik is that she is very easy to talk to and plan with. She truly enjoys what she does along with her 1st mate and they both bring great vibes! I felt this the most when comparing how other Captains responded back to me (very commercial). We will definitely book with her again! HIGHLY recommended especially for special occasions!
JUST AMAZING!!! This trip was the highlight of my time in Puerto Rico. We were a group of 10 celebrating my birthday. The service provided by Gabriel and his team are truly 5 stars. Communication and pick up at the marina was perfect and on time. The even provided plenty of appetizers for my group and did a drone photo shoot for us. Do no hesitate to book with Gabriel and his team!!!!
WOW! Just WOW! Don’t think twice- you need to book this boat. Jamie and Manuel were SO amazing and accommodating. They bought us beer, had the best music on the island and we’re so nice and helpful with snorkeling and even a mini dingy ride! We felt so lucky we had them personally and weren’t with the hassle of having a full group like other boats on the island. Best day of our lives!!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!
Icacos and palomino islands are closer to the mainland unlike culebra so you can enjoy more time on the beach and reef (snorkeling) than in travel. I would highly recommend visiting is you are on a shot trip.
Our boat trip with Yilmalia was incredible. Crew was very accommodating and very quick to respond with any questions. Crew were very nice & friendly! Overall we enjoyed our trip to Culebra Beach.
Well worth it!!! So much better than the large catamarans full of people. Able to go to small island and snorkel, swim & enjoy the beautiful island of Icacos! Jamie was a great captain & host!
