Best movie set in rural Puerto Rico. The movie Contact, a fiction drama with Jodie Foster, was partially filmed here.
NileGuide Expert tip:
The trip from San Juan is a bit long, but well worth it. The views of the rugged terrain and pristine flora make the trip very special.
- Operated by the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center of Cornell University in cooperation with the National Science Foundation, the Arecibo Observatory is the largest single-aperture telescope in history. Visitors have a chance to admire the monumental structure and also have access to an exhibition building that explains the many astronomical phenomena that the observatory studies.
