Today you just get photos and video of the serious wave action on Puerto Rico’s northern beaches.
Playa Mar Chiquita (Mar Chiquita Beach) is a beautiful protected beach that is extremely popular with the locals.
Plenty of parking on a weekday, and a guy selling mojitos for the unprepared.
The lava rock that makes up the area is extremely sharp and abrasive, bring good footwear if you plan on exploring.

The lava rock that forms these cliffs is crazy sharp and tough on the flip flops

Reserva Natural Cueva del Indo (Indian Cave Natural Reserve) preserves an ancient Taino Indian cave with petroglyphs.
We didn’t hike over to the cave since we were wearing flip-flops, but we spent plenty of quality time enjoying the beach and stunning coastline.
If you visit, don’t pay the ten bucks to park at the private parking lot, there is streetside parking just east of here.
Worth a visit if you’re passing through, but not necessarily a destination in itself.
