About Arecibo

About the City of Arecibo

Also known as the "Villa del Capitán Correa", Arecibo is a municipality located in the northern shores of Puerto Rico. The city itself is a growing industrial zone with many locations to visit and explore. The name "Arecibo" comes from the indian tribe leader that resided on the area at the time the Spanish Conquistadors settled the zone in 1556. To most American's Arecibo only brings an image of aliens and space, mostly of course due to the Arecibo Observatory, the world's largest radio-telescope, and which has been featured in several movies. However, Arecibo is filled with other places for the enjoyment of the whole family. You can explore the "Indian Cave", a cave located right on the beachside and which is filled with many petrogliphs or carvings on the stone made by the early inhabitants of the Island.

How to Get There
Getting to Arecibo is easy if you are coming from San Juan, taking Route 22 which will take you directly pass the towns of Vega Alta / Vega Baja, Manatí, and others cities along the north coast. The trip from San Juan to Arecibo is about 45 - 60 minutes depending on traffic. Getting to Arecibo from Ponce (south) is a little bit more complicated but more enjoyable. Road #10 connects Ponce to Adjuntas and the towns of Utuado and Arecibo. Since the highway is unfinished (missing a section from Adjuntas to Utuado) you will need to take the old road #123 from Adjuntas to Utuado and from there to Arecibo. Click here to read our Road Trip article on how to get to Arecibo from Ponce.

Exploring the Area - What to Expect
Getting to Arecibo is fun for the whole family. If you are staying in San Juan, the best way to enjoy Arecibo is to take a day to explore the zone. We recommend you start the day by getting early to the Camuy Caverns which lie about a few minutes from Arecibo in the City of Camuy. Then after that head towards the Arecibo Observatory, and then to close the day you can spend an afternoon of fun for the kids at the Arecibo Lighthouse and Historical Park
