Visit Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre de Culebra
This national refuge is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and aims to protect animals such as the leatherback sea turtle, dark seagull, and white-throated whistle. Certain areas are open to the public and provide the opportunity to see the local flora and wildlife.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife office provides maps and information about current trail conditions, so make sure you stop by to ensure that you aren’t treading on any protected or restricted areas. The Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre de Culebra is a bird-watcher’s dream, as it is home to more than 50,000 birds of 13 different species.
If you’re extra lucky, you might even spot a leatherback sea turtle or a nesting site. Just remember to be respectful of the animals and their space and never touch or approach them.
