Cueva del Indio reviews
Although I lived in Arecibo for many years I just recently visited this area while on vacation. This place is absolutely gorgeous. Stunning views and the caves are full of history. I did not go well..... more »
Entrance is $5 per person with parking. Beautiful views and history. Can climb through a hole in the rock (if you're feeling brave) to enter the cave and get closer to the petroglyphs. more »
A very rewarding experience if you dare to go into the cave. The “guide” at the entrance will give you instructions on where to go in and how to navigate your way down to the cave. The opening is large enough for most people to go through it. You must be careful going in, if you fall and need medical attention it will take a while for help to arrive. Best If you go with someone else. Be ready to take lots of pictures. Beautiful location.
Beautiful, 5 dollars to get in. But unless you're somewhat experienced at hiking, I'd suggest to be careful. WEAR CLOSE TOED SHOES..and be careful with elderly and children..you'll see what I mean when you get there. It is unguided and there are no signs or barriers, you enter at your own risk. But it is breathtaking
