Puerto Rico is known for its Creole-inspired food, “bomba” style music and currently for the amazingly talented Lin-Manuel Miranda and his Grammy award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway show, Hamilton. What Puerto Rico is not so known for, however, is bone fishing.


Just off the northeastern coast of Puerto Rico you will find a quiet, beautiful island called Culebra. The inhabitants say it’s their best-kept secret, one that they love and yet hate to share with the rest of the world. It’s in this paradise you’ll be able to indulge in some of the best bone fishing you’ll ever experience.


If you’re into fishing, and you think you’re an expert or even just an aficionado, this should be next on your list. The fish you’ll find here are as big as the ones you see in those framed photos hanging in the fishing tackle shops, the ones you swear one day you’ll catch. These bonefish are tricky devils, mind you. So once you actually get a bite, get ready to start hauling that line, because they won’t give up without a fight.


You will be sure to have an unforgettable time here, and it’s relatively cheap, too. The island of Culebra boasts a selection of boutique hotels, and the food is fantastic. If you haven’t fallen for the idea of bone fishing hook, line and sinker, but your significant other has, the surrounding island is home to some breathtaking reefs you can snorkel over and even see some turtles. This island has something for everyone.

What is CBD?

Quietly on the rise is the cousin of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, known as cannabidiol, or CBD. THC is the more well-known component of cannabis; however, it is illegal in many states, so CBD has risen in popularity as a legal option. Stores selling CBD continue to pop up in major cities and towns.
