  • Beautiful view but be careful as rocks are sharp. We couldnt find the ladder so it may have been damaged by hurricane. Grounds leading to attraction lost plants and trees  more »
  • Awesome place to visit. Worth the wait and every penny. Just make sure you get there early enough, the groups fill up fast. If you have to wait to long just grab something to eat at El Trapiche.  more »

  • Bring your walking shoes this is a great place to visit when in Arecibo, stunning views great adventure. The Arecibo light house is driving distance from this location along the same road. If you're visiting type "Cueva Del Indio Arecibo" into Google maps and it will pop up.
  • Breath taking! If you are not afraid of heights this place is cool! Wear climbing shoes to climb through a little hole in the wall to get to the cave. Once in there you'll see cave etchings made by thre Indians, .there some pools to swim in as well. Loved the view!!! ..there is a $5 entrance fee with a description of where to or how to step so you don't fall through one of their "moon doors"
