Arecibo Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 68 photos

Enormous Radio Telescope in central Puerto Rico

A very interesting place to visit! It's definately worth the 1.5 hour long car ride to get there from San Juan.

See Tips below for more Photos!

The Arecibo Observatory is part of the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center (NAIC), a national research center operated by Cornell University under a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation (NSF).
