Parque de las Cavernas del Río Camuy (The Río Camuy Cave Park)
Are you a frustrated Indiana Jones? Don’t miss a visit to this Puerto Rican wonder.
Puerto Rico's first natural charm.
Each year, more than 150,000 people visit this extraordinary archaeological landscape of the 'Parque de las Cavernas del Río Camuy', which is a formation of stalactites and stalagmites with more than 45 million years of being eroded into shape by rains and winds. This excursion will transform you into a real Indiana Jones through the tunnels and passages and with a guide who explains both the geological formations and the suspicions that the pre-Hispanic Taíno tribes already knew, as they explored these caves. Considered as the first natural charm of Puerto Rico, it is said to be one of the largest cave systems in the Western Hemisphere, with formations that look like giant mushrooms, water columns, fossilized quartz and the famous 'Sumidero Tres Pueblos': an underground Cliff that's closed off by the mighty Camuy River in the background. To reach the park, it’s necessary to hire the services of local agencies.
