  • Wow, I can't say enough about how stunning the view is from here. The water is gorgeous and rocks amazing. Hike to the top and look down into the water. It's beautiful.  more »
  • We enjoyed visiting but it seemed a little much that the three of us paid $15 to enter. Probably worth it (?).... I don't know though. Here in Missouri, we see very beautiful rocks/caves for zero mone...  more »
  • Best $5 you can spend. The caves are amazing. It is a bit dangerous, so def don't do while drinking. And the beach next to it is amazing.  more »

  • Breathtaking scenery unlike any on the island. Take note that the Birth of the New World statue is about an hour and a half away if you decide you want to walk across the cliffs and beach to see it up close. It looks a lot closer because it is a few meters from being the tallest statue in the world. Take a water, wear a hat, and enjoy!
  • Shore and rock formation are fantastic. The only downfall is parking to get there. We drove there right before sunset to shoot some pictures, but private parking lot was closing at 5 PM. What a shame! So we left a car on open place to the west and went along the beach. Be sure not to leave anything inside the car that catches eye. Wear decent shoes as rocks are very sharp. Be very careful while climbing to the final spots. There are no handrails or smth. You are on your own (as anywhere else in PR). Not for small kids. With all that you will be rewarded with fantastic views.
  • This public park is free if you can find free parking along the road near where the paid parking areas are. Once you get your free parking to the west of the paid parking head towards the beach follow the beach to the east there will be many paths that head inland for a few seconds then keep heading east. Walk past the old abandon structure to the left is where the cave is to the top right are where more wonderful views are. Be carful of the waves don't get too close stay away from the wet rocks, stick to the dry rock you don't want to get a surprise wave taking you out.
  • beautiful, that's all I can say. rent a car and drive here, stop by the local shops and restaurants, meet the locals, some of the friendliest people I've met
  • We had the chance to meet a local man, who showed us around. It was spectacular and we went to an unusual path. So far, that was the highlight of my first 3 days in PR, and we've been sightseeing a lot since we got here. Can't wait to see if something will top that.
