Cuevas del Indios (Indian Caves) bear the marks of a lost culture and people of Puerto Rico - the Taino Indians. This site was once a place of refuge from nature's harsh conditions outside (practically living on a cliff face would entail some harsh conditions..). More recently, the site has been turned into a small attraction and site for big name movies, like Tomb Raider and Die Hard.
Spend some time up here. There are lots of great photo ops:
Then you can make your way down into the caves. There will probably be people around, so just follow them. Even if you just feel up to wandering, it's not hard to find the entrance. If you're concerned, you can also hire a guide on donation and they will show you around and tell you some history of the place. But you'll fine self-guided...
Yes, there is ladder that you take to get down into the caves. It's not too scary. If you have a fear of heights, you might not be too keen on it. But I have a fear of heights, and I managed up and down this just fine.
Once you're down there, go explore! There are petroglyphs all over the place. Check out the Taino Indian designs, perhaps you've seen some of them elsewhere in Puerto Rico?
After you've learned a bit about Taino culture while spelunking through these caves, head back up top and check out the arches. It's a quick walk in the opposite direction of the caves. You'll find narrow little paths cut through the sea grape trees. Watch out for holes, there are some random pits that fall directly into the ocean. Most are noticeable, but just be cautious.
