About
The Caguana Ceremonial Site dates from Puerto Rico's late prehistoric and early contact era. The Caguana site, the largest site of its type in the West Indies, is located in the rainy west central mountains on the east side of the Tanama River, in Barrio Caguana. In 1955, the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture acquired the site and began a program of stabilization and restoration. Cobbled walkways border 10 bateyes and stone monoliths, many decorated with petroglyphs, rim some of the court.

A little difficult to get to but very much worth the time to learn about the indigenous peoples of the island and the Caribbean. Nice visitor center, mostly educational for school children but very informative to us tourists. Interesting also in that the researchers continue to learn about the native peoples and their background.

Says it’s open 7 days a week. Called 3 times and no answer or voicemail. Drove 2 hours to find it closed with gates locked. Common courtesy if you’re closing for the day put it in your automated recording. This was the one of the only reason I came to PR was to come here and see my culture.

We've been here twice. This time with the kids and grandkids. The ball fields and petroglyphs from 1200 AD are impressive to see.

We went up the mountains to find this place and get some interesting history of the native Tainos. The place itself did not disappoint. They have a layout in the grounds to see how the Tainos lived. Outside they have the rocks and an interesting setup. I would gave liked to see a plaque explaining what we were looking at. Inside the museum there are several displays which do include explanations. They do have an app for you to download that explains everything you see and how they found it. Their is a guard up front and a staff member who charges for the entrance fee which is only $5. We opted to go see the grounds first and when we came back to see the museum the staff member had left to lunch and locked the museum. I complained to the guard explaining we had already paid and were not willing to wait an hour for the man to return from lunch so the guard found a key and let us in. It was very pretty and filled with information. The drive was a little nerve wrecking as the curves and hills can be scary when it does not accommodate 2 cars. The locals are used to these curves and drive them pretty fast. If you enjoy history this is a very pretty place to visit.

This place has so much significance in getting to know a bit more of our history and ancestors too bad there was nobody around to provide that information. They do have some information on the walls but is minimal. If you are in the area give it a visit anyway.

This archeological site is very impressive, I highly recommend going here and understanding more about the native people that inhabited Puerto Rico. Our guide Michael was an incredibly knowledgeable, passionate, and accommodating storyteller. One of the best guides I’ve ever met. The sites are surrounded by beautiful mountains and a river, and the chirping of the birds takes you far away from the business of the beach towns.

The largest Taino ceremonial ground on the island. Beautiful glyph carvings. Well maintained grounds with minimal protection, so be careful. Great information posted on a wall, but unfortunately I did not get to go into the museum, which probably has better display.
Open Wed-Sun. Call ahead for reservation.
A guide came up and offered more information about the ceremonial grounds and important plants surrounding the field.
The drive is slow and winding through amazing mountains that give you an entirely different, less touristy view of this beautiful island. Waze gave good directions.
(Another great opportunity is the Batey Adventure Tours right across the street! 7 ziplines, rappelling, kayaking through a mountain cave, suspension bridge, with wonderful, positive and energetic guides. I'm 56 and pretty sedentary, so it was challenging!)

Beautiful place and very cool. However, be warned we drove up on a Sunday and the gates were locked. The staff appeared to still be there, but they refused to let us in and said it would be closed all day. Not sure if you can call ahead, but consider yourself warned.

The most interesting cultural activity I did in Puerto Rico! So much to learn about the Taìno culture, and so much to see both in the park and in the museum!! You should definitely ask of Michael once there, he's gonna bring that place to life with his passion and his knowledge, guaranteed... Such an amazing man and soul, thank you so much again, you made our day! Entrance fee is 5$ adults and 3$ seniors/students/children... The place would be worth way more than that, hope the government or anyone in charge will soon consider preserving the place.
