Awesome place to stay! Best place on the island to stay. I have to say that staying at the Pelicano made the visit to Culebra perfect. The island is very quaint like travelling back in time 30 years. If you are looking for the “resort experience” this is not the place for you. If you want to experience the local island life and visit some beautiful beaches this is ideal. We practically had Zoni beach all to ourselves. Zoni beach was beautiful, we felt like we were living in a tropical paradise. The Pelicano is outside of town and you must have a Jeep or a golf cart. We rented a golf cart from Carlos which was really fun. Everyone on the island is very helpful and accommodating. We did all our food shopping on the island without a problem. The prices may be a little more than home but not high enough to compensate for the inconvenience of transporting food from the main island. The Catholic Church has mass at 7pm Saturday night and 10 am Sunday morning, in Spanish. The priest was very dear and did say some of the homily in English for us. He also invited my 2 daughters (ages 11 and 14) on to the altar to say the Our Father. We did minimal cooking but the Pelicano is very well equipped if you choose to cook. We stayed two nights which was not enough. We did bring back food to eat in the beautiful open air kitchen and we relaxed on the hammocks each morning and evening, very peaceful and private. We enjoyed snorkeling with Captain Bill. His catamaran is docked just steps away from the Pelicano. He provided great food and snacks and took us to some very nice snorkeling areas. Alex, we so appreciated everything! Thank you!
