Indian Cave “La Cueva Del Indio”




Now here’s a place that you’ll have to see at your own risk!

It’s located a couple of miles east of the Arecibo Lighthouse on Road 681. It’s one of the most spectacular views in Puerto Rico. It has some of the most spectacular crashing ocean scenes in the world.  It has genuine Indian petroglyphs dating back to Pre-Columbian times. And it’s DANGEROUS!


First, it’s located in a solitary place with very few structures around it. Second, the neighborhood itself is full of abandoned houses. Third, the very nature of the terrain is dangerous. The ground is mainly made up of rough stone, the terrain is uneven and the edge is unprotected.  And the fall?  Well, let’s just say that if you fall here you’ll probably die.


Locals know it as “la cueva del indio” because inside there are several genuine Pre-Columbian petroglyphs. The last time that I visited, back in 2008, there was a Hollywood crew filming a movie there. And there was a makeshift wooden ladder that you could use to climb down into the cave (again, at your own risk).

I wanted to mention this site because despite all the warnings that I gave above, it is —without a doubt— one of the most astounding seafront places in Puerto Rico.
