    Visitor Center

    by frankcanfly Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: You`ll have to climb 500+ steps from the parking area, but if you`re on crutches, they`ll drive you up. (thanks Carlos).

    At the top, you`ll find this visitor center, complete with scientific explanations of what goes on here. They also show a `day in the life` movie, in Spanish on the hour, in English on the half hour.

    The Approach

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: After 30 minutes of winding roads after passing the town of Arecibo, this is the first view.

    It seems surreal, I`m looking around for James Bond or Doctor Evil to appear. (portions of `Goldfinger` were filmed here)

    Fondest memory: Now you`ve read about it inside the visitor center, it's time to open the door to see the parabolic dish in person!

    Fondest memory: One of the three support towers. They average 300 ft in height, and were built in an average of 20 days each!

    Favorite thing: One of the most important things when visiting Arecibo, besides a visit to its historical zone, is to see the orld largest radio-telescope in the rural barrio of La Esperanza.
