“Fascinating!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Our guide, Walter, gave us an interesting discussion/tour of the site. It is amazing to consider that all of this was here for so many hundreds of years before being discovered in 1975. The small museum on the grounds contains many artifacts that have been uncovered at the site, and the stories of the different ball courts, ceremonial areas, and the area that was probably used as a calendar/sundial are very interesting. The $3 charge is well worth it to have such an in-depth history lesson on the Tainos and Igneri.

“Good historical site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

I've been to sites in Cambodia, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Peru, etc. from around the same time era, and it was interesting to hear from the experienced guide how Puerto Rico was different from the others. This location had some things that were unique, and there is always something new to learn at a new site.

10$ per person for an interesting trip into history. The museum and guided tour were worth the visit.
