This is a cool historical sight that pays tribute to where the Puerto Rican culture all started. Right next to the carving is a little cave where you can get some of the best pina colada’s!

This sculpture is rare and unique, there is a small food business beside it and its clean and good. If you are driving from San Juan towards this city you will enjoy a spectacular view of the atlantic ocean...You'll just love it!

A huge rock carving of a Cacique. Quick and nice roadside attraction. Located on a busy road so it is kind of dangerous to stop.

This is a must stop if traveling to the west. Located seconds after guajataca this is perfect for taking pictures of this native Indian carved into a huge mountain. Be aware of the cars.

This is a great pit stop if you are heading to Isabela! It's located just off the main road (at a junction with another road). There are no formal parking spots where you can park, but there is space on the side of the road....More
