Parque Nacional de las Cavernas del Rio Camuy

This spelunker's playground consists of the Camuy River and more than 200 caves, some large enough to make skyscrapers disappear.

Reviewed By Karthik T - Austin, Texas

This cave is amazing. But you will have to plan little bit before going there. You will have to go as early as possible because once they reach a certain number of people in a day they stop allowing people. Please call before going as it decent drive from San Juan. The tour guide was bilingual. The only bad part is that the people who work there are unorganized. But it's really worth a drive from San Juan

Playa Sardinera

Reviewed By 27Ruben27 - San Juan, Puerto Rico

Beautiful beach, local's favorite. Just one piece of advice, stay in the shallow water area. There is an open area that goes to the very deep ocean, with a strong undertow and big waves. People that know hot to swim think this is going to be easy and they may receive the worst surprise of their lives. You need to bring with you everything you are going to need. You may need to use the car to go to nearby facilities.

My fiancé and I were recommended to book with interior tours for our Puerto Rican adventure. We were not disappointed one bit. From repelling to the caves to the zip lining, everything was amazing with the utmost attention to safety and most of all the staff was so attentive to our needs. They went above and beyond in making sure we had the best experience and even took pictures of us. The views were amazing and the price can't be beat. I highly highly recommend booking Puerto Rico interior tours for your next Puerto Rico trip.

La Cueva del Indio

This cave on the water along the rugged coast in Arecibo contains a number of Taino petroglyphs. The views of the north coast are amazing.

Reviewed By Baltzer - Halifax, Canada

When you think of a cave, you think of a wet hole in the ground, inhabited by bats, and if nothing else, batman. Nothing special, but can be cool on occasion. I am fairly confident this cave with exceed these expectations.
Finding this location isn't too difficult. We read that parking isn't great in the area and you should pay to park since the streets are narrow. We didn't realize beforehand you could simply park onsite. There is a sign indicting the entrance to the cave. From what I understand, this is private property, so they can charge what they want for parking - depending on how they feel that day. There seemed to be a lot of space, and I believe we ended up paying $5 or $10 for us to park and see the cave (2 people).
The cave can be a little tricky to find once you arrive, as once you get into the area, there are no signs to guide you. There is however, a path to follow. Once you reach the end of the path you come to a lava field and ocean. There is a nice arc rock on the water if you go right (great for taking pics) but the actual cave is to the left. It doesn't appear to be there as the whole area is relatively flat. You actually have to climb down a series of natural stairs to find a ladder to get into the cave. The ladder is held on by a rope tied to a rock (felt sturdy), but wouldn't be good for the faint of heart.
The caves themselves are amazing! Lots of Petroglyphs. I've never seen anything like it. It was truly amazing. Touching and seeing history placed there from the Taino Indians was unreal. There are several sections to the cave. Most of the cave floor is sand but has sections where you need to cross water. The cave has parts where it's open to the air above, so you never felt like it was indeed a cave.
I would recommend this anyone going to Puerto Rico. There really is nothing bad I can say and was an experience of a life time. I read that other people took a tour. Didn't even know this was an option and we went around ourselves which I enjoyed. We took our time and had a great visit!
If you want to see this area, I have two videos up about it on my YouTube channel. Just visit Josh the Travel Guy to check them out!

Tanama River Adventures

Reviewed By 19243 - Baton Rouge

Fernando runs a first class operation. We had a great time rappelling, tubing the cave, & hanging out with Fernando. The tranquility of the area is unreal. Bats, crickets, lizards, fruit, & shaved ice. Paradise. My blood pressure probably dropped 20 points just floating away. Bring a backpack for drinks. There are places to keep it dry.
I previously submitted a review that for some reason the star rating kept coming back as terrible. The trip advisor app was glitching out. I was finally able to delete that review but had to wait 30 days to resubmit. This place is so "must do" that here I am 30 days later resubmitting.

Aventura Cueva Ventana

Cueva Ventana means Window Cave. Take a hike to and through this cave (bring a flashlight!) for a view that is out of this world.

Reviewed By StravaG71 - Edmonton

Experiience guides take you through the caverns with bats, cave swallows and other creatures. The view when you get to "window" of the cave to the outdoor scene below is unforgettable. Underplayed in the tour was the very interesting cave carvings. some were faces and others were three-dimensional shaman-like carvings. If you're into exploring historic caves add this one to your list. You need a medium level of mobility to do the tour. Guides emphasize safety and provide hard hats.

Quesos Vacanegra Tour

Reviewed By Kelly S

This is defiantly worth doing. The tour is informative and defiantly unique. They begin by explaining the process, showing you the aging room, sampling different cheeses with wine or juice, until it's time to create your own! You can even add different spices to your batch. After two months you can pick up your cheese or for a small fee they mail it to you. I just wish they could of translated it to English. We were told it would be and then one there, no one was able to and I felt like I missed a lot of great information. But the hands on experience is truly great. They don't sell that much inventory at this location which I think will change as they expand so be sure to visit their main headquarters. My family purchased their Yogurt (coconut) flavor and FAUGHT over it because it was seriously the best thing on earth. I highly encourage you to purchase it. Most delicious thing I've ever ever ever had!

Arecibo Observatory

Explore the wonders of the universe at the world's largest radio telescope located in Arecibo, Puerto Rico. Here, scientists from throughout the world use the 305 meter dish to gather radio signals from regions of star formation, planets, distant galaxies and the atmosphere. Visit the Angel Ramos Foundation Science and Visitor Center which includes interactive exhibits. Enjoy the amazing view from the observation deck and don't forget the auditorium and souvenir shop.

Reviewed By ReadyForThisJelly - Washington

The Observatory is stunning and the landscape is gorgeous, but the tour is pretty ho-hum. The museum is geared towards kids and the guides were not especially informative. But I would nonetheless recommend this tour because the viewing platform over the dish is pretty amazing. Hurricane Maria nearly destroyed the Observatory, so I'm grateful to have visited. The in-depth VIP tour might be better, but they hadn't restarted that when I visited.
