Parque Histórico Cueva María de la Cruz


In 1948, historical and archaeological evidence was found in this Loíza cave. The archaeological finds included rustic pottery, remains of archaic human bones that predate the time of Christ, animal remains, fruit seeds, and marine fossils.

Currently, the area serves as a historic park for the municipality of Loíza. After paying an entrance fee, you'll be able to tour the cave as well as participate in the three different workshops: bomba dance class, beekeeping, and turban-making demonstration. Fun fact: The Cueva María de la Cruz houses one of the largest bee sanctuaries in the Caribbean, harboring thousands upon thousands of bees.
