Parque las Cavernas del Camuy (Rio Camuy Caves Park) is famous for the extraordinary number of caves that are scattered throughout the area. People visiting will be able to explore some of the caves and learn some things about them.

There are two main kinds of caves at the park that guests can explore. The first are air filled, perfect for hikers and the quick-visiting tourist. Guests will be able to head down into the cave where a guide will show them around and talk about the formations. The second kind of caves are only accessible by divers, and are completely submerged.
