Caves and Karst Region Tour with private guide

This is a set of two different destinations departing from San Juan all the way through the north west coast of the island of enchantement Puerto Rico. Choose between The Arecibo Observatory, The Window Cave, The Rio Camuy Caves park or Cueva del Indio.


Karst Region is the third largest region on the island and is located between the municipalities of Loiza and Arecibo. Arecibo is the islands largest city and is located 50 miles west from San Juan.

We'll first meet up in the metropolitan area and drive all the way to the northwest coast. From here we explore different caves, sinkholes and/or beach areas.

Puerto Rico has the third largest Cave System in the world and the only one that has an underground river passing right underneath more than 300 ft below. This Topographic Limestone formations were formed underwater millions of years ago and gave birth to one of the most exciting places in the world.

You can choose between 2 destinations including "Cueva del indio, Cueva Ventana or Arecibo Observatory and The Rio Camuy Caves Park"

What’s Included

Other: Transportation and tour guide services are included all along the way and through out two different destinations. It could be The Rio Camuy Caves park, Arecibo Observatory, The Window Cave or Cueva del Indio. You could combine your favorite two or add another destination to the package for $50 extra. All tours are private and include a stop at a local restaurant for lunch i can recommend. Entrance fees to the attractions or PR cuisine delights are not included in the price. The Camuy caverns and Arecibo Observatory are closed Mondays and Tuesdays. For all my tours, I own a 14 passengers van but if there's more people interested on the tour please let me know and I will add the difference to the price or create a customized experience.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

3 $40 - Per person between Entrance fees to both attractions and a stop at a local restaurant.

What’s Extra

Other: Entrance Fees to the attractions are not included on price. For example "Cueva Ventana" has an entrance fee of $20.38 for adults. This price is approximate and is based on entrance fees at the chosen destinations and our lunch stop. Adults pay $20.38 at Cueva Ventana, $14 per adult at the Rio Camuy Caves Park for example. If the group chooses to do a third destination here or outside the list close to the area it would cost only $50 extra.

A Recent Review of this tour

Hector picked us up (8 of us) at 8am and we started our day - headed out of San Juan and toward our cave tour. We all peppered Hector with questions and he was a wealth of knowledge. After the Cave tour we went to a fabulous restaurant on the water and then was treated to a unique beach for a swim and exploring. We never felt rushed and was repeatedly told that it was our day and that he wanted us to have many opportunities to explore different parts of the island. It was a great day....
