Cueva del Indio reviews
When you get to the parking lot there is a guy with pictures and instructions 1- cave to the left 2- arches to the right. Getting down into the cave is tricky , I’m 62 6’1” 190 lbs and very fit so no.... more »
Be aware that the walking is over very sharp limestone rocks. We did walk the entire way with sandals and flip flops, but very slowly and carefully. When we went, the waves were crashing super... more »
Beautiful beach and amazing costal views. The Indian drawings are also nice. It was $5 to enter and definitely worth the money. more »
A very rewarding experience if you dare to go into the cave. The “guide” at the entrance will give you instructions on where to go in and how to navigate your way down to the cave. The opening is large enough for most people to go through it. You must be careful going in, if you fall and need medical attention it will take a while for help to arrive. Best If you go with someone else. Be ready to take lots of pictures. Beautiful location.
Beautiful, 5 dollars to get in. But unless you're somewhat experienced at hiking, I'd suggest to be careful. WEAR CLOSE TOED SHOES..and be careful with elderly and children..you'll see what I mean when you get there. It is unguided and there are no signs or barriers, you enter at your own risk. But it is breathtaking
Well worth the money to go in and explore at your leisure. We found it very adventurous and got some amazing photos! One of the most beautiful places on the island!
I do recomend to wearing to use proper shoes since rocks are sharp you will be walking. A few years ago you could go down the big cave using a big ladder but if you want to go down its hard and harder to get out plus you might get some cuts. Its more like a 3 stars and the view takes the three stars
Beautiful place, one that is completely open to all without any admission fee. Don't be scammed into paying $5 per person to that guy who put up his own sign. There is also parking elsewhere along the main street adjacent to the beach and you can enter from the beach into the woods or from the street into the woods.
