Home>Cueva Ventana Puerto Rico Photography Hot Spot
Cueva Ventana (English: “Cave Window”) is a large cave situated on top of a limestone cliff in Arecibo, Puerto Rico, overlooking the Río Grande de Arecibo valley. It is visible from the PR-123 but is accessible from a trail that begins adjacent to a Puma gas station located along PR-10 on kilometer 75. The Window Cave and surrounding land are owned privately.
Using a tripod was allowed on the tour when we went. They came in handy for our crew because this is not an easy hike. There are muddy areas, slippery rocks, and areas that you will go very slowly as not to fall. It is well worth the little bit of stress to experience the overlook. We call the overlook shots tourist shots, but this one is an exception because you will be shooting out from the edge of a Window Cave.

Cueva Ventana – Photography Hot Spot
Lens: This area is a wide-angle lens location. The only wildlife we encountered was the adorable kitty cats in the benches’ waiting area before the tour.
Gear List at a Glance: Circular polarizing filter, neutral density filters, tripod, shutter release, wide-angle, and zoom lens. CPL filters will help you to create dynamic images. They will make your white puffy clouds whiter whilst looking out the Window Cave.
When to Go: Any time of year. It is a tourist location, so midweek is the best offseason to avoid humans. There is a hike, and it is not an easy one. It is slippery and can be a little tedious. This is not for the elderly or people who have mobility issues. You climb down into a cave, rocks are slippery, but it is very well worth it if you can handle it.
Shutter Speed – Find out more about how to shoot in shutter priority. This is used mainly for moving subjects when you need to avoid motion blur.

Don’t forget that you can use a rain sleeve on your camera if it is raining. If it is bright and sunny, you want to use a low ISO such as 100.
If you are doing photography along with your ghost hunting on cloudy days, you can do running water or waterfall photography to avoid the glaring sun. You can also use an ND filter to get a long exposure for dramatic effects, even in the sunshine. If you ghost hunt indoors in abandoned places be careful!
