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.
