Those interested in Puerto Rico's ancient indigenous history should not miss Tibes Indian Ceremonial Center, one of the most important archaeological excavation sites in the Caribbean. A hurricane in 1975 washed away some top soil, revealing an abundance of pre-Taino, Taino, and Igneri artifacts. Visit the center and view these objects, alongside the ruins and remnants. The museum also offers detailed and extensive information about these civilizations dating back to 25 CE.

  • The Centre as such is very nice, a very peaceful place. My family is half Puerto Rican and the purpose of the visit was teach them their estate Aboriginal, however was very sad to the get to the place that us report that only have a guide (very trained for the tour) but that works only half time and that to it a pm is was leaving to all them visitors that arrived in the afternoon without the tour. Note a couple of extremely boring Americans walking the area why obviously does not understand anything of what was there without a guide, the stamp of the hut was careless falling down all the walls of the same, the baths with an extremely unpleasant smell. The Museum is very good care. You give 3 star by that the place it have neglected a little, but is an area beautiful full of nature
