Island Hopping

Passion fruit B&B is only “7″minutes away from the ferry Docks to Culebra & Vieques, you can go ” Island Hopping” from us and still have our wonderful breakfast before going to our sisters islands. We will provide you some beach towels and arrange taxi service for a more enjoyable time.

Culebra and Vieques

The islands of Culebra and Vieques, to the east of the main island of Puerto Rico, are beautiful and scenic. A ferry to either of these islands departs from the town of Puerto Real, which is just a few miles from Las Croabas. Culebra boasts one of the most beautiful beaches in the area. Flamenco Beach is a fabulous place to spend the day. A tour of the fort on the Island of Vieques makes for an interesting day trip and it too has some wonderful beaches. However, on Vieques, you will need a vehicle, as the beaches are remote and public transportation is not readily accessible to them.

The Bioluminescent Bay, Fajardo Puerto Rico

The Bioluminescent Lagoon is a must-see. It is the most spectacular natural phenomena in the area. Laguna Grande is one of the three areas in Puerto Rico were bioluminescence is visible year round in the waters at night. The most popular way to view these waters that glow is by kayak. We are associated with a reputable kayak company that offers trips from Las Croabas Park. The park is less than a mile from our guest house and easy to find.
