This “Window Cave” is a large natural cave situated atop a limestone cliff in Arecibo, Puerto Rico overlooking the magnificent Río Grande de Arecibo valley. From the window of the cave, the view is breathtaking, romantic, and a must see destination!

Valentines Day is approaching, and it’s time to think about some time alone with your sweetie. Cueva Ventana offers day tours as well as night tours which can add some spark and romance to the trip… don’t you think? The cave is also a great family friendly destination (if the kids have to tag along) with plenty to do, see and enjoy. Sights, culture, and history is all here while you experience the natural beauty of this ecotourism certified cave. This is truly one of the best of the tourist attractions in Puerto Rico.

109519909Visitors can connect with nature and the environment. The adventure is a guided walking tour averaging around 45 minutes through the mountains and forest where you will see stalactites, stalagmites, five species of bats, and more unique characteristics of the ecosystem. Inside the cave, you will see petroglyphs and Taino Indians symbols, and if you’re lucky enough, some have seen Christ’s face appear in one of their pictures taken inside the cave (the tour guide will let you know where this usually happens)! The best part: at the end of the nature walk, you will be amazed at the view through the “window” and witness breathtaking views of the valley of the Rio Grande de Arecibo. 

Puerto Rico has so much to offer and is a destination not to miss. See stunning sights like Cueva Ventana and enjoy delectable dining in San Juan, beautiful beaches, and so much more!
