Our tour guide Tony was very knowledgeable on the history of Puerto Rico, and had such a positive energy it made the trip a lot of fun. The staff at the Camuy Caves also made the experience entertaining. There was lots to be learned at the Arecibo Observatory. I recommend watching the film presentation and following the guide for the Q and A session.

The Cave Park and Areceibo Observatory are both interesting and worth visiting - not top attractions for people with a short time in PR, but good sites nonetheless. Unfortunately, the day we visited the caverns, there was no electricity, so we went to Areceibo and lunch in reverse order. Our guide Roberto kept contact with the Camuy folks and learned that the power was back on by 3:30, so we got to go then. Roberto was an excellent and informative guide. We learned so much about the culture, history, politics, and economy of PR in additions to visiting the sights. He assisted us in many small ways and made the day very enjoyable. Kudos to Roberto.

The visit to the Camuy Caves was definitely one of my highlights during the one week I spent in Puerto Rico. The location in the middle of the forest is mystical and the tour was really great, and there was plenty of time to take photos. The visit to the Arecibo Observatory was also interesting and there was sufficient time to attend a tour.
Unfortunately there was no real stop for lunch - we went from the Camuy Caves straight to Arecibo and then from there back to San Juan. It would have been better to have a 1 or 1.5 hour break somewhere in a nice restaurant, but instead we all went for a hot dog at the Observatory...

Had a good guide and a small group of six people. No cruise ship in town so no lines at the caves or observatory. Caves were nice, the observatory a bit dull if you had prior knowledge of the subjects and no interest in looking at the displays, joining a tour or watching the movie. Overall ok.

My daughter and I really enjoyed our time at both sites. The Cave system was really interesting and beautiful, the observatory was a bit lacking, i was hoping to be able to talk to folks about their current work and findings, but it was pretty much a see and go type thing...but still fun to go,
