Long Description: Top

Tamarindo Estates is a small, intimate, and unique resort. All our rental units are kitchen-equipped. There are one- and two-bedroom apartments. You will feel a deep sense of privacy and tranquility, as there are only 12 apartments in the midst of a large division of virgin and undeveloped land. With its 60 acres, Tamarindo Estates has by far, the greatest acreage of any inn or resort in all of Culebra. The resort is nicely secluded, yet it is an easy 5-minute drive from town. Our charming and cozy apartments have air-conditioned bedrooms. For those who enjoy natural air, the villas also have ceiling fans, and are screened. Each apartment has its own bath with shower, a separate living-kitchen area with an electric cooktop, refrigerator-freezer, microwave oven, color TV, VCR, and a roofed deck with an ocean view. These apartments stand high on a hill within the property, allowing you to enjoy exceptional views while sitting in your private roofed veranda. Typically there are three independent attached apartments per building. We have a staff of friendly caretakers living on the resort's premises to help you have the most pleasant stay at the Estates and the best Culebra, Puerto Rico vacation ever. These are self-catering accommodations. We provide you with a nice, clean rental, with all linens and kitchen utensils. In order to keep rates down, we do not provide housekeeping service. We do not offer the marbled, glitzy nor the luxurious lodging available in the generic resort scene, but a small, quiet, and friendly apartment hotel with simple, though comfortable accommodations in a remarkably beautiful natural environment.


There are no passports or visas necessary for U.S. citizens. U.S. citizens can travel in and out of the island without going through immigration or customs. Culebra is one of Puerto Rico's off-shore islands, 10 miles square in area and 17 miles east of Puerto Rico. It is located midway between P.R. and St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. Presently there are about 3000 residents on the island. Culebra was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493 and was under the Spanish flag until 1898 when Puerto Rico became part of the United States. Presently, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico enjoys a special status of self-government under the U.S. flag.

Culebra is an unspoiled divers' and beachcombers' paradise, also coveted by bird watchers. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation, beautiful beaches, good diving and snorkeling, a laid back atmosphere, and away from the tourist scene, Culebra Island is the place to come!


The easiest way to reach Culebra is via San Juan, Puerto Rico. The flight from New York to San Juan takes 3 1/2 hours; from Miami to San Juan it's 1 1/2 hours. San Juan International Airport (SJU) is served from the U.S. Mainland by American Airlines, Delta, US Airways, Continental, Northwest, Spirit Air, and United. Culebra has daily flights arriving from San Juan Isla Grande Airport (SIG) on Vieques Air Link (787-722-3736) and Air Flamenco (787-724-6464). A 1 1/2 hour ferry ride is also available from Fajardo, a sea port on the east shore of Puerto Rico. For the taxi drive between San Juan and Fajardo you should allow between two and three hours, depending on traffic.

Hi Jose - We are holding flights on March 14 and return on March 21. Please let us know as soon as possible if we can come on those dates. We liked it so much when we were there a couple of years ago that it will be hard to go somewhere else on Culebra!! Gracias. M.M. and D.G, PA, USA

Dear Jose, We would love to return to your wonderful island. Do you have a one bedroom cottage available from Feb. 15 to Feb. 23? Thank you, K.R., NJ, USA

Dear Jose; Joan and Chuck; Pat and Dave: First of all, this past week at Tamarindo Estates in Culebra was a joyful experience, encompassing about everything we want in a vacation -- simple, clean, functioning accommodations in a gorgeous setting with magnificent views, beautiful, secluded beaches with coastline snorkeling, great hiking, etc., etc, I could go on and on. Have no doubt, we shall return. On another subject and also to be returned, somehow I packed the folder containing the titles of available videos. It will be in the smail mail shortly. Again, we had a great time, but unfortunately we cannot boast about Culebra because anyone who has been there wants to keep it a secret from the world of tourism. Regards, M and G.T., MA, USA

Pat, Dave, Joan, Chuck, Jose: We had a wonderful time in Culebra, and we thank you all for making it so special. Culebra is our enchanted island, a very special place for us. We remember every vacation we have had there - this one specially - and we surely will be back again. ... The changes you managers have made have been subtle, in some ways, but we noticed, and we really appreciate what you have done. We owe special thanks. We hope you stay on forever....We arrived in a winter storm, and had to chip the ice off our car at the Cleveland airport before making the final lap home...Maybe we should have stayed longer in Culebra! Best wishes and happy Valentine's Day to all of you. J. and T., OH, USA

Jose, Thanks for being a big part of our wonderful Valentine's week. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time while in Culebra. Pat, Dave, Joan,a nd Chuck were all very accomodating and gracious hosts. ... Thanks again, we can't wait to return. J.B., PR

I had a most wonderful time in Culebra and very much appreciate your hospitality at Tamarindo Estates. Hope to return some day again. Dr. L.R., USA

Hello Jose, we had a very nice time at the estates. The property is beautiful and enjoyed the snorkeling. .... We forgot to take our receipt, which we left in the glove compartment of the Orange Suzuki. We were wondering if you could destroy that for us as it has Billy's credit card information on the receipts. Thanks very much. Sincerely, A.V. and B.M., NY, USA

We had a wonderful time and can't wait to get back again next year.. Keep in touch.. Thanks again, J. amd R., PA, USA
