Cueva Ventana Arecibo and Cueva del Indio

Tour Description

Two Caves 1/2 Day Adventure

The beauty of roadside sights on the way to Cueva Ventana is stunning while the views that await you from the cave are magnificent. The cave window frames the Arecibo Valley! The fabulous scenes from cave window are the main reason Cueva Ventana has quickly become one of the top destinations in Puerto Rico.

This half-day tour consists of a visit to Cueva Ventana and Cueva del Indio with a lunch break in between.

Cueva Ventana was certified by the PR Tourism Company as an eco-tourist attraction for its environmental conservation practices. This tour includes a visit to the facilities with two caves, a walk through the forest and the view of the cave towards the valley. The place has a period of the antiquity of 30 million years and has a secondary forest in the karst topography zone. In the grounds, we will be exposed to 100 species of native and exotic trees. The place is home to a great diversity of animals and endemic species just to Puerto Rico. In the cave, we can see pictographs of our aborigines and petroglyphs with face formations. You’ll be impressed to see the communities of different species of bats along with one of the best scenic views of Puerto Rico. At the end of the tour, we will see a canyon, valley, the big river of Arecibo and the highest peak in Puerto Rico. Here you will learn why the cave is called Cueva Ventana or “Window Cave”. Then we’ll stop for an authentic Puerto Rican lunch break, not included in the price, before heading out to the next cave.

Once we arrive at the site of Cueva del Indio, we will hike up an uneven terrain in order to see a bird’s eye view of the Cueva del Indio. We will also enjoy the view of the arches. The reserve has about 8 arches formed by dunes cemented which captivate us with its scenic view and the Atlantic Ocean. We can also see the 350-foot statue of Christopher Columbus, one of the tallest statues in the Americas.

If you want to see the mountains and the coast in 1/2 day, this is your best option.

First Time Traveling To Puerto Rico?

It’s So Easy

Normally, I have no qualms about traveling internationally. That said, I appreciated how much less work I had to do in order to travel to Puerto Rico, which is a U.S. territory. If you’re an American, here’s why it’s easy:

Image result for airplane flight

  1. You don’t need your passport — a license or ID is all you need to fly.
  2. The currency is the U.S. dollar.
  3. While Spanish is the main language of the island, English is widely spoken and everyone in the tourism industry speaks English.
  4. Your U.S. phone plan will work normally without having to get a SIM card or paying roaming charges.

Additionally, there are direct flights to Puerto Rico from all over the U.S. (but especially on the East Coast).

The Perfect All-Around Island

Plenty of people fly to Puerto Rico and never go beyond the confines of their resort. Not my thing, but I get it. Sometimes you need a getaway where you do nothing.

Best beaches in Puerto Rico

 

 

 

 

 

 

But if you want more than just a beach, Puerto Rico has it all. If you’re visiting for just a few days, like I was, you can easily fit in beach time, adventure time, culture time, and yes, even hanging-out-at-the-pool time.

Flamenco Beach, Culebra, Puerto Rico

Beautiful Beaches

Of course, if you’re going to the Caribbean, you want to see some beaches!

Culebra Island, east of the main island of Puerto Rico, is home to Flamenco Beach, which is frequently voted one of the best beaches in the world in travel magazines and on sites like TripAdvisor.
