High above the valley of Puerto Rico’s Rio Grande de Arecibo, a system of caves in the limestone cliffs serves as a home for a colony of bats — and gives intrepid visitors the treat of a spectacular view. A fifteen-minute hike uphill from the PR-10 highway and a flashlit scramble past stalactites and stalagmites brings you to the mouth of the Cueva Ventana, the Cave Window — and a vista of green hills and fields all the way to the horizon.
