Since I moved to the Midwest in 2012, I’ve been fortunate to enjoy six trips to Chicago, each time with different loved ones. I’ve been to many of the tourist attractions more than once, and have found some off-the-beaten-path gems along the way. Read on to find out what I’ve learned!
Cueva del Indio is a bit off the beaten path. Locals seemed impressed that we had been there and tourists looked at us confused when we mentioned it. Though it came up as a recommendation on a number of travel sites, I can see why tourists might pass it up: we took windy roads much of the way there (I kept promising my husband we were only 10 minutes away) and Google Maps didn’t seem to have any idea where we were going. However, you’ll eventually see signs for Cueva del Indio, and you’ll even pass a few beaches on the way (such as the black sands of Playa La Boca).
