Wow! What an amazing day. Thank you Angel for an experience of Puerto Rico that we will never forget. The Arecibo Observatory was on my bucket list but you gave us so much more. Yes there were other tours available that included the Camuy Caverns and the Arecibo Observatory but with the addition of Cueva del Indio and the black magnetic sand beach, I could not refuse to take this tour. I made the right choice. Once again thank you Angel.

The tour was very good. The guide tourismfamily was helpful and easy to get along with. If you do not want to rent a car then this tour is a great way to see the sites. I would recommend it to friends.
Really enjoyed this trip. The guide was wonderful. She was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. It was nice to get out of the city and see some of the countryside. I was really interested to see the telescope and it is amazing. I am a scientist and found this site was informative and entertaining. The caves were impressive, lots of bat pooh. Joking aside, plenty of time to see the caves , the guide was excellent. Not strenuous at all. We would recommend this tour
GREAT guide, he knows the area so well and is very nice and knowledgeable about Puerto Rico. He will take you through local roads so you can experience the true beauty of Puerto Rico. We did so much that day and everywhere we visited was amazing. I would 10/10 would come through this tour again. In fact, I already recommended it to friends going to Puerto Rico later this year.
Angel is an excellent guide, genial and generous with his knowledge.
The caves were spectacular and the weather held out for us on the visit up to the Arecibo Observatory. Both were well worth it and I highly recommend this combo tour!
The whole family had a great time. Thanks!!
This tour was well worth the money spent for our family of three. We were picked up at the hotel on time though it would be nice if the vans/busses themselves also has the company logo... even if a magnet... on the outside because the number of tour busses that passed through our hotel made it difficult to tell which bus was what and we had to rely on the guide's shirt logo. As we drove to the cave, Ricky our tour guide provided us with a running commentary about San Juan and the different areas of Puerto Rico we were passing through.
At the caves, park officials take over. You're given a number for the tram and told where to purchase your admission ticket. You will likely have to wait 20-60 minutes for the tram down to the caves. It's OK because there are some vendors in the waiting area and you can get food and drink while looking at small souvenirs. However, be ready to go when they call you. The caves are very open, so claustrophobia isn't an issue. Once we were done with our tour, we were given the chance to use the restroom again before boarding our bus.
Our bus driver took us to a nearby restaurant where we were able to dine cafeteria-style cost is 8 for a main dish, two sides and a soda... not included in your ticket price. Though the food was decent, it wasn't great. Still, it was a quick stop and we were on our way.
Arecibo Observatory is located in the mountains and you have to pass through some pretty narrow and twisty roads to get there. For this reason alone, we were glad we booked a tour versus renting a car and navigating there ourselves. Once at Arecibo, the bus parks and you have to walk 5-10 minutes up a hill to get to the observatory. You will pay for admission at the top of the hill. There's a small museum with lots of activities suited for elementary aged kids, but the unquestionable highlight is the radiotelescope. Take time to listen to the movie and then enjoy the views. Don't miss Taylor's Nobel Prize which is on display on the second floor of the museum.
Once you are done, you will board the bus and be returned to your pick-up point.
Caves are awesome!
Great places to see outside San Juan. It was my first time to go in a cave . It was scary at first but I enjoyed it anyway. The Observatory is one of a kind and a must see since it's one of its kind in the world. Our driver/ guide was amazing!
This tour was amazing! Our tour guide was great he answered every question and was very enthusiastic about his job and culure. He directed us to some amazing shops and restaurants in old San Juan.
Joshua, the tour guide, was knowledgable, engaging, and resourceful. I highly recommend the tour as an overview of Old San Juan.
We had a wonderful time! Your driver was very friendly and informative, even finding a wonderful "local" place for lunch.
the tour was great, and the guides were very informitive
had great time !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The guide/driver (Ricky) is very good, fun and friendly. He introduced us (all the tourists in his vehicle) to a word "¡Ay, caramba!" and we still think of him. And his partner (who is an employee, but taking the tour along with us) is also very helpful explaining things, guiding and friendly. We would love to go with these two gentlemen again when we revisit.
Good organization, great driver and good timing. Caves were awesome! So was the observatory.
Caves were awesome! Tour guide for the caves was not awesome. Observatory in my opinion was boring but if you like that stuff u will love it. Best part about our viator tours was our tour guide Robert! He was the best!
My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide, Robert, was the BEST, and he was friendly, personable and professional. He told us stories about growing up in Puerto Rico, as well as informing us of interesting sights along the way to the Caverns and the Arecibo Observatory. I highly recommend this tour! We hope to come back to Puerto Rico again!
The cavern experience was amazing. Mother Earth offers us some amazing wonders.
Arecibo is incredible, I had no idea we were still waiting to hear from ET again. A must see.
