Combining activities with lunch and drinks and transport can start to get pretty expensive in Puerto Rico when planning independently. This San Juan cruise saves you money by merging a catamaran cruise with lunch, local sangria, beach time, and even an optional upgrade for hotel pickup and drop-off.

The video presentation was very brief and I needed to hear more. I felt like more could be done with the entire facility. This ancient people may not have a lot of information about them but I would think more is there to share. I don’t think it would cost much to paint some rocks with fake designs and make a small area to display items to show how it is perceived the peoples lived. The display information in the building was good but didn’t appear well organized. I think there could be more here to share with descendants. A little oomph would go along way to making this less of a digsite and more interactive as well as interesting.

Entrance to the center is $3 for adults and $2 for children. Begin with a short, informative video about the site's origin and the tribes that previously inhabited it. A small museum offers views of artifacts extracted from the site. Lastly, you can peruse the grounds where explanations of indigenous plants used for medicine, stone structures that were playing fields, and replicas of the tribe's villages can be found. It's a bit far off the beaten path, but if you're visiting nearby Ponce, it's worth a look.

This site is not for everyone. If you love ruins of old civilizations this is a great place to visit. We had the entire site to ourselves. The site itself is just a few open fields with stone outlines of buildings and athletic facilities. One gets to read about the native people of the Caribbean who are largely gone.

We enjoyed a quick stop at this historic site. The grounds were closing early the day of our visit due to an island wide political event. The museum, though small, had many great artifacts. The site suffered some following the hurricanes and does not yet match available photos. Many plants are labeled to explain their use. Sites like this are rare finds and deserve time and attention. If you have a morning or afternoon, this place provides an opportunity for visitors tp draw upon the experience of people who lived on the island up to 1500 years ago.Your visit won't take much time and is an easy walk.

Is a great place to walk, see historic Taino sites, learn about a culture and people who can teach us a few things. The flora and iguanas are amazing.
