  • This is one of Arecibo’s hidden gems! Parking is free, but you pay a guy at the fence $5 per person to go into the amazing caves on the ocean. I absolutely LOVED walking around & we even were told how...  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
