in Culebra is a great anchorage, particularly up behind Cayo Pirata, where you are close enough to the Dinghy Dock Café to row over for morning coffee and breakfast. The town, Dewey, has an internet
café if you cannot pick up WiFi
on your boat and all of the major cell phone
services work just fine in PR. It is a short walk to the ferry
terminal in Dewey, where you can catch a $2.50 ferry
ride to Fajardo on the mainland. I understand that there is a free shuttle from the Fajardo ferry terminal to the Super WalMart, which is just across the highway from a large West Marine
store. Many Puerto Rican towns have a privately owned public car service
(publicos) to other points on the island, certainly from Fajardo to the SJU airport
, and are much cheaper than a taxi. Fajardo is a very good sized town and the yachting center on the east coast
. You will be able to find anything that you need there and most necessary items will be available on Culebra. Enjoy!!

P.S. Be aware that most of the air service
between Culebra and San Juan
flies into the smaller Isla Grande Airport
, necessitating a not inexpensive cab ride to the international airport. Be aware!
