Its not worth for the money 12 adults 10 kids under 12 and 3 parking light house is close. The park there is nothing to see what you see in my pictures is what they have. Waist of time and money.

I hadn't been there in 10 years, they added a small water park. It was perfect for our family. The views are spectacular, the kids loved the pirate cave with the small aquarium at the end. We had a great time!

This is Puerto Rican history! A must visit place when in Arecibo. Bring your swimsuit and get ready to explore the nearby beaches.

Loved it!! It's great for kids. The small aquarium, the lighthouse and the views are great. After seeing all that, you can enjoy the pool.
