Arecibo Reviews

2 reviews
Arecibo is a great town, it has it' ups and down. But nothing that can't be changed. It has beautiful beaches, amazing sceneries and it even has the biggest Obsevatory in the whole world. Politics arwn't great in Arecibo, well in all of Puerto Rico aren't.
Review Arecibo
Crime is a very high rate and safety is not to good because there are police officers but they dont really care about what happens, and during the night the lighting in the streets mostly do not work which happens to cause more crime.
