La Cueva del India is located (appr. 18°29'33.89"N 66°38'30.42"W) in Arecibo Municipality on Puerto Rico’s north coast.  In 1992, the Planning Board of Puerto Rico designated Cueva del Indio as a Natural Reserve. The site got its name from the great number of engravings, known as petroglyphs, found on the walls.
