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.

Being tourists, we were unaware that La Cueva del Indio closed at 5p. The man at the front taking the money wasn't too friendly in letting us know that after 5:20p he would be locking the gates so that no cars could leave the parking...More

Absolutely stunning area. From the caves to the views to the beaches. This area is wild and gorgeous. If you climb up the caves make sure to wear sturdy shoes as it is all volcanic rock with sharp edges.

La Cueva del Indio is a must see. It is a bit off the beaten path, and to truly experience it, you have to do some walking/climbing. Very reasonably priced. Good visual ride, driving to it. We walked over several small mountains, each with it's...More

I was skeptical of this place upon pulling into the parking lot. The caves were OK and without the ladder to get down to the beach level I think we missed out, but still really enjoyed the views from the cliff tops. You will definitely...More

Kids who are, say, 10, 12 or older and who are well-behaved? Yes, probably. But it's not a safe place. Anyone who might dash away or not be able to climb, this is not a great place. A young kid you'll have to hold hands with... More

Very likely the ladder will be available. The locals that operate the area and charge the $5 entrance fee are there nearly everyday. I do not think you have anything to worry about.
