This is a sacred space and very interesting in a beautiful setting. The guides are very knowledgable. This is critical history. This place is not heavily visited but it should be. It deserves a visit! Its on a great driving tour around Utuado.
It's a very interesting place. But there's no guide there so you can't really enjoy the place like others Indian parks. I definitely enjoy more the movie with the explication and all the history about the place, than the tour all by yourself.
There is a $3 entrance fee that is well worth it. The small museum offers information panels that explain the site and the artifacts on view. Then you can wander down the area of the Bateyes and see the ceremonial site remains. Well worth the...More
Excellent exhibition of native artefacts from native culture. Great way to explain and show younger generations about the history of Puerto Rico archeology. Cemis, Barry's, Caguana one of the most important villages before the spanis conquest.
We learned about this site from a guidebook provided by our Airbnb host and decided to take a drive from our hotel in San Juan. This archaeological site is located just outside of Utuado, about 65 miles from Condado. The site is thought to be...More
This place has a lot of potential. The historical significance is quite important however as a tourist all you see is a few stones standing up in a line in an open park.
It's a free attraction but they could charge a small fee and...More
Quiet, well-kept archaeology site of original inhabitants of Puerto Rico. Many artifacts and petroglyphs on site along with grounds that have the ceremonial plazas with bordering rocks. Not much is known about this area however it is quite fascinating to realize that these first inhabitants...More
Having visited lots of historical sites detailing the accomplishments of indigenous people, I found this interesting, but not impressive. It does detail some of the history of the Tainos, approx 1000AD to 1500, but they were not builders...satisfied apparently with
small accomplishments. This site does...More
Condado Beach, Isla Verde Beach, & Arecibo (3 Replies)
Any suggestions on where to eat and shop in the Condado and Isla Verde areaa. I am looking for local and affordable eateries and shops. Are there any good food stands on the beach so I don't have to venture out? I am also thinking about taking the bus there so hopefully everything is within walking distance. Also, any food suggestions on the way to Arecibo? What do you think of the following itinerary? CONDADO BEACH Enter beach on Ventana al Mar Park on Ashford Lunch or pick up...More

There are several access sidewalks to Isla Verde Beach. I would go before the Hotels if you want less people. But the food stands are by the Hotels. Bebo BBQ is on the Marginal Road, across the Airport. If you are taking a Bus, that will take a long time. We don't have time schedules and Buses run about every 30 to 45 min. If you are on a budget forget about having drinks at El San Juan. There $ 10 to $ 15 a Drink. Go to Punta Las Marias, that's west of Isla Verde on the weekend. You'll...More

day trip to Parque Ceremonial Indigena de Caguana (8 Replies)
My family will be in Puerto Rico in early July. My daughter wants to go to the Parque Ceremonial Indigena de Caguana. Is it possible to do this as a day trip from Old San Juan or is it just too far a drive?

yes, you can do this as a day trip from San Juan (probably take u about 2hrs, depending on traffic) If you head off early enough you could also check out the Arecibo Observatory or maybe even have late lunch at Lago Dos Bocas (if it's a weekend - there are 4 lakeside restaurants that are open on weekends)
