Location: Camuy – North Coast of Puerto Rico
Be ready to be wowed as soon as you enter this wondrous natural attraction tucked into the karst region of the north coast, a perfect day trip just about 1 hour an 20 minute drive from San Juan, Puerto Rico. This cave is the third largest underground cave system in the world and the Rio Camuy runs through it. Photos really can’t capture the beauty and wonder of this place, this place is not to be missed during you visit.
Parques Nacionales (Puerto Rico National Parks) manages and runs this 300 acre park offering walking tours through this enormous cave. Your tour begins with a fun trolley down a steep rolling hill surrounded by lush tropical plants that kids will love.
Your tour starts at Cueva Clara which is about 170 feet in height. You will be given a set of headphones, available in Spanish and English. You’ll walk through marvelous stalagmites and stalactites, and gorgeous works of art formed over thousands of years by Rio Camuy. During your exploration, you’ll feel the heat of hundreds of sleeping bats and enjoy sights and sounds of an underground river at a sinkhole of about 150 feet deep.
