To best orient yourself to Morovis, start your journey at the Diógenes Colon Gómez Cultural Center in the main part of town. Occupying a former municipal hospital, this space is a community hub dedicated to preserving the historical, cultural, and environmental heritage of the Moroveño people. The center offers everything from music and painting classes to poetry performances and art exhibitions.
The organization also puts on the annual Festival de Cuatristas y Trovadores, a fun-filled event held every September with music, dancing, food, drinks, and local crafts.
Sign up at the Diógenes Colon Gómez Cultural Center for a guided tour of Cuevas Cabachuelas, one of Puerto Rico’s most intriguing and alluring eco-tourism destinations. This natural attraction, which is part of Las Cabahuelas National Reserve, includes 60 entry points to a series of caves, caverns and ditches. The site is a marvel to behold, with intricate stalactite and stalagmite formations, diverse flora, and an array of wildlife and insects.
The caves also offer an important glimpse into history. They feature art etched and painted by the Taino people who originally inhabited the island, as well as fossils of animal species that no longer exist in Puerto Rico.
