But, should you want to explore, Utuado is one of the most beautiful regions in Puerto Rico - rich in Taino history.
Centro Indígena Caguana
Estimated to be over 800 years old, this Taíno heritage site is considered, by archeologists, one of the most important archeological sites in the West Indies. The site most likely served several different functions. First it was used for ceremonial dances, religious rituals and other rites; it was used for playing ball games in which two teams of equal numbers tossed a ball to each other; and third, it is believed to be used to make astronomical observations. Monoliths and petroglyphs carved by the Taínos can be seen among the rocks and stones, some weighing over a ton, that were most likely brought from the Tanama River located adjacent to the site.
El Cemi Museum
This museum in the mountains of central Puerto Rico gets its name and shape directly from its subject. The three-pointed stone shape is a cemi, an important spiritual object among the Taíno, an indigenous people of the Caribbean region. The El Cemi Museum in Jayuya showcases cemis and other Taíno artifacts in its unusually-shaped home.
La Piedra Escrita
This place is naturally beautiful. A monumental stone with important petroglyphs allows you to get in touch with the Taino culture and its enviroment. A popular spot for bathing in the river and cooling off.

El Sol de Jayuya
