Not an amusement park this is a fascinating site if you are truly into history and archaeology. Glad it has been preserved but hope government continues to support it.

It's interesting. You will walk a lot. It's mostly outdoors. They have a souvenir shop. Go comfortable.

Everyone from the island should come at least once. This place will alow you to understand how our indian predecesors lived...can't say ancestors because the spaniards wiped them all out.

If this is the best we can do at maintaining our Indian heritage....!!! Just a bunch of rocks laying around with no explanation whatsoever, the guide does a fairly good job once you get him warmed up.

Had a great learning experience on the taino indian background. Pretty amazing how much got done around their times with no technology. Definitely check this place out if your nearby in the south region of Puerto Rico.

The museum and ruins don't take much time to see - an hour or two tops. The ruins basically consist of some small stone walls with a few very faint petroglyphs. No trails to hike.
