Formely a borough of Arecibo, Camuy was officially founded in 1807.
This town is located about an hour from San Juan via toll highway #22.
Camuy is best know for it's fabled rio Camuy Cave Park,a 268-acre ecosystem that is part of this hemispheres most impressive subterranean cave network,
intricately carverd by the mighty camuy river.
Visitors and guides board trams that take them to the mouth of the clara cave.
Trams also stop at the 650-foot wide tres pueblos(tree towns)sinkhole,where special plataforms allow visitors to view the river passing 400 feet below from one cave to another.
another atraction is espiral sinkhole,where visitors can descend some 205 steps to reach its striking entrance.
The mewly opened cathedral cave a wild caving tour experience-boats over 40 indian paintings and rapelling facilities.
The cave sinkholes and subterranean streams are all spectaculars and worth seeing,as the world's THIRD longest underground river runs through this breathtaking park.</b>
