It is so difficult for me to review this place because I want to keep it for myself. All I will say about it is this: my pessimistic, inexpressive teenage son plans to bring the woman he wants to marry here to propose.

Omg this place was so AWESOME. I went with a group of four, including my 4 yr old son, and the tour guide Pito was so informative and helpful with getting my son down these deep caves. The sight was amazing and afterwards we were able to go into the beach and just hang out. Price was so cheap, $2.00 for parking and 50 cents per person. A must see. Would definitely go again.

If you’re looking a for less touristy cave – this one is for you! I was lucky enough to book a combo adventure tour with Natural Wonders PR (who I HIGHLY recommend). We saw Camuy River Cave Park, "Charco Hondo" Waterfall, Arecibo Observatory, Cave "La Ventana" (The Window) and Cave "Del Indio" (The Indian).
"Del Indio" is a combination of a cave + scenic BLUE ocean. It’s a little climb to get through (NOTHING hard). It’s got a bunch of smaller caves which you can climb through. There are also two arches in the water and lastly absolutely fantastic views of the pure blue ocean. We had a wonderful time. The ocean breeze is beautiful. TOTALLY worth a visit.

I hesitate to rave too much about this place out of fear that it becomes a tourist mecca. It seems far enough away that getting from a cruise might be impossible and perhaps that is it's saving grace. With it's super affordable admission $3 and amazing arches, petroglyphs, blue ocean and scenery, it's a place in Puerto Rico you need to stop. It is authentic, so if you are looking for something posh, this is not a stop for you. When you pull in, look around and find someone in the hut to pay your admission and get some advice on where to go. You can hire a guide, I didn't see any when I came, but saw some people with one later. They tell you all of the nuances and make sure you see the great sights. You could spend a day here exploring and still feel like there is more to see or run up, see the highlights and be in and out in an hour, just depends on your style. Bring a sturdy pair of shoes, this is not flip flop territory.

Its plain invigorating to go there and experience. The place is easy to miss but look up on google for the coordinates and put them on your GPS and GPS brings you to the exact spot. The entrance looks shabby with few parking....kind of looks like a restaurant joint. $2.00 for car and 50 cents for each person. Shoes is a must or you might cut your toes/feet. Though the rocks are pretty to look and fun to walk on can be seriously dangerous if not cautious. Be careful with kids. Rest rooms aren't that great and I wouldn't even recommend unless otherwise.
