It is a popular tourist attraction to Puerto Ricans as well as tourists visiting from outside Puerto Rico. An admittance fee of $3.00, established by the owner of the gas station, is required to enter the trail to the cave on Saturdays and Sundays due to its popularity. The number of visitors is at its most popular on both Saturdays and Sundays from early morning to an hour before nightfall. The cave nor the land in which the cave is located at are owned by the Puerto Rico Department of Natural and Environmental Resources. The Arecibo Municipal Government planned to talk to the owner of the Texaco to buy the adjacent land to be transferred to the Department of Natural and Environmental Resources and protect it from recent vandalism. As of January 2013, the admittance fee was established daily and raised to $5 in February 2013. A boardwalk project was constructed from the gas station leading up to around 200 feet into the trail.
