  • This is the only place I've been that if you are not a resident you have to pay extra. $10.00 for residents and $20.00 non residents.  more »
  • Really worth the hike to the cave. The view is stunning and perfect for photos! We had said that it was like a tour, even gained us entry and us ordered a guide/biologist of the area, but once climbed the stairs nobody was there, no one gave us the safety helmets or lanterns. Coincidentally we were with someone who had done the tour took us through the correct route and gave us details about the area, and data from trees, rocks, etc. Although we didn't tour for which we pay, we had a great time, we take lots of pictures and it was memorable. I highly recommend it.

  • The tour guide explains both in Spanish and English. It was a very educational experience for $20. The view from the window at the end of the hike was like in heaven. The scenery at the valley below and the mountain in the background are indescribable. One needs to be there to understand the beauty of Cueva Ventana and the adjacent areas. The cave entrance is less than a quarter mile from the pay station. A couple of sections are considered very steep and treacherous for the elderly or handicapped. Cueva Ventana is a must-see at least one in a lifetime.
  • Absolutely gorgeous. This is an adventure for almost all ages and abilities. The tour guides are extremely knowledgeable and take good care of their guests. For $20 per person, you go through 2 caves and get to see and learn about Puerto Rico's native plants and animals. La Ventana itself was breathtaking. I highly recommend taking this trip.
  • Beautiful view.. now they provide a guided tour to see the "window cave" at the end of the tour you can see an amazing view of the green fields and highway.. breathtaking and must see for travelers
  • An awesome adventure. The tour guide was awesome. The view from the window was spectacular! Worth every penny I paid !
  • It's short and sweet. It's a small cave system with an awesome ending. The guides speak both English and Spanish. I heard it is more expensive than the other caves, but this was definitely worth the price of admission. Check it out!
