North Coast of Puerto Rico from San Juan: Arecibo Observatory and Cueva del Indio

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 111.25
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Following convenient pickup around 8am at your San Juan accommodation, board a comfortable tour vehicle headed west for a Puerto Rican town. 

    Back in your tour vehicle, head for the town of Arecibo, where you'll visit the Arecibo Observatory. Take a guided tour of the biggest radio telescope on earth and view a documentary about the telescope and its construction. Departing the observatory, stop for a traditional Puerto Rican lunch at a local spot (own expense). 

    Visit Cueva del Indio, a sea cave decorated with petroglyphs crated by the island's original inhabitants, the Taino Indians. Then visit a black magnetic sand beach to relax, walk in the ocean, and snap photos of this natural phenomenon. 

    Return to your San Juan accommodation for drop-off at the end of your tour.

    My husband really wanted to see the Arecibo Observatory. Knowing how narrow the roads are in Puerto Rico I knew we didn't want to try to rent a car and navigate the island by ourselves, so I searched for a tour that would take us...More

    I vaguely remember Angel telling us that he did not like doing cruise tours because of the time restraints. I don't want him to miss business due to my bad memory though.

    Cueva del Indio involves steep climbing on jagged rocks with high cliff-like edges and even open gaps between the rocks that plunge anywhere from 5 - ? feet. I am not sure Cueva del Indio would suit a small child.
