In between the gorgeous beaches of Rincon and the world’s largest Arecibo Observatory I stopped at a prime attraction, hidden somewhere on the Puerto Rican central mountains – the Rio Camuy River Cave Park. Home to the world’s third largest subterranean river, and with over 220 caves (and many more still unexplored), this place is a must. Though the daily capacity is limited, if you do manage to get a seat then you’re in for a treat – a 2-3 hours guided tour through the major caves.
You start off with the tram taking you down to the caves, and then the group slowly makes its way down the trail and into the large caves…
Inside, it’s a whole new world of beauty…
They’ve done a really good job with the lighting and the circular trail and the guide does the usual tourist "what do you see?" accompanied with various explanations.
Very well done.
