A unique place! It is a museum with ancient and taino artifacts. It is located in Jayuya, P.R. next to Blanca Canales House (another museum).

Easy parking, educational, $1 donation per person?!?! Wonderful! Enjoy the view of the mountains outside, and visit the neighbor museum house "Casa Canales". Very hot in the summer I was told!

Just looking at the area and then the Cemi is like been back to the Taino's era. Wonderful areas to walk and feel in contact with mother nature. Staff who guide us around very polite and friendly. Nice place.💙💙

Museo El Cemi is a great place to visit only if you are in the area and planning to visit other local attractions. The museum could be seen in 30-60 minutes. Please, take precaution with mosquitos, specially if you are sensitive to mosquitos or insect bites. The cost is minimal and there are several good places for lunch close by.

It's approximately 1:30 min from the SJU Airport area and you can see it in 1 hr (park and small museum) plus 30 min video. It's definitely worth visiting, but I recommend you also visit another attraction like Cueva Ventana, eat late lunch in Lago Dos Bocas o an Adventure in Rio Tanama so you can maximize the travel time.

For a small entrance fee, you get to see artifacts from the Taino Indians from the area. This quirky building only takes about 30 minutes to go through.
