TRANSPORTATION  Don't rent a car on the main island and try to take it to Culebra on the cargo ferry. You can't. There are various good reasons for this: reservations on the cargo ferry are usually very limited; insurance may not cover damage or liability incurred on Culebra; and most important of all — if you need roadside assistance on the (sometimes rough) roads of Culebra your car rental company can't help you out. If you're considering renting a golf cart, PLEASE read this link written by a mindful resident of Culebra. This is vital information for your own safety and the safety of others:

There are 2 food markets in the town of Dewey and 2 outside the town.

In town:  MAYRA'S (also referred to as CHELIN'S, pronounced chayleens) is on the hill leading to the bridge. It has the largest selection of foods, frozen and canned, and household goods. No liquor. Closed for siesta between 1:30-3:30 daily and closed Sundays. The other town market is COLMADO MILKA'S, across the bridge and before the gas station. They have more accommodating hours. Also a butcher in the back plus a pretty good selection of frozen & canned groceries and assorted fresh produce. They carry a respectable selection of wine/beer/liquor. They are open on Sunday mornings.

Out of town: Just up the road opposite the airport entrance is the COSTA DEL SOL market. They have a good selection of frozen & canned foods, some hardware & household goods, plus a small, reasonably priced wine/beer/liquor selection.  Open daily 7am-9pm, Sundays til noon.  The nearest food store to Casa SuMarco is COLMADO GENESIS which has basics from milk to produce to frozen meats and foods. No liquor. Open 7 days a week. Look for a sign on the main road (heading toward Zoni beach from Casa SuMarco) pointing down the street it's on. (Sorry, no street names or numbers anywhere on the island!)

The island's largest selection of wines/liquors, specialty and gourmet foods, excellent (frozen) meats is at EL EDEN, located near Milka's. They have fresh-baked grain breads, sandwiches, cold cuts, and home-prepared foods like veggie lasagna. Prices are on the high side but quality is tops. Some evenings they serve sit-down dinners.

There is an outdoor fruit/vegetable market several times/week near the main intersection in town, opposite the Post Office. Excellent varied selection of fresh veggies, also some dairy products.

There are a few other small delis and groceries (most are in town) that are not mentioned here.
