Parque de las Cavernas del Rio Camuy // Camuy River Cave Park!

Tuvimos la oportunidad de Visitar el Parque de las Cavernas del Rio Camuy, junto a nuestros queridos amigos!! y ciertamente tuvimos un dia ESPECTACULAR!!  El lugar está hermoso, Impresionante e Impactante!!

El Parque de las Cavernas del Río Camuy es uno de los lugares más espectaculares de Puerto Rico. Es el tercer sistema de cuevas más grande del mundo en donde al momento se han descubierto 18 entradas. Al llegar comenzarás tu travesía con un vídeo y luego un trolley te llevará a la entrada de la cueva principal, Cueva Clara, la cual tiene más de 170 pies de alto y estalagmitas y estalactitas inmensas. .//

 The Camuy River Cave Park is a cave system in Puerto Rico. It is located between the municipalities of Camuy, Hatillo and Lares in northwestern Puerto Rico, but the main entrance to the park is located in Quebrada, Camuy. The caverns are part of a large network of natural limestone caves and underground waterways carved out by the third-largest underground river in the world, the Río Camuy (Camuy River). The cave system was discovered in 1958.  Over 10 miles of caverns, 220 caves and 17 entrances to the Camuy cave system have been mapped so far. This, however, is only a fraction of the entire system which many experts believe still holds another 800 caves. Only a small part of the complex is open to the public. The 268-acre park built around the cave system features tours of some of the caves and sinkholes, and is one of the most popular natural attractions in Puerto Rico.

Las fotos no le hacen justicia a lo precioso e imponente del lugar.... para fotos más claras, aquí,  Les cuento que aquí se han filmado varias películas!! entre ellas... Batman Forever  y Pirates of the Caribbean.

My pictures are not so impresive... but you can see better pics HERE.   I have tell you, here have been filmed several movies !! including ... Batman Forever and Pirates of the Caribbean.













"Sumidero Tres Pueblos" is a giant sinkhole measuring 650 ft (195m) wide. The Camuy River can be seen 400 ft (120m) below from three observation platforms that are located at different points alongside the opening of the impressive crater. The sinkhole is located where the borders of the towns of Camuy, Hatillo and Lares meet. Each town has its own platform overlooking the sinkhole.

Esta área, lamentablemente están cerradas al público, pues están deterioradas.... aún así no dejaron de impresionarme.... sencillamente bello, 200 y pico de escalones en forma espiral...hacia donde?? no sé!!LOL no pudimos bajar!!

Visitors must be in good physical conditions in order to walk into "Cueva Clara" and reach "Sumidero y Cueva Espiral" to see the mouth of this cave. They must go down to it through a scenic 205-step boardwalk. The challenge is getting the way back to the tram. Once walking down the 205 steps into the sinkhole, the cave itself is off limits to reach. Only experienced spelunkers can penetrate the cave and the underground river with special permission from the National Parks Company of Puerto Rico. This sinkhole is believed to have once been an enormous cavern that collapsed thousands of years ago. At the opening of the cave there is an impressive sight.  Sorry, just the info, because this part of the park its no longer on service.... we just have amazing conections and let us go to see the "cueva espiral" from the top!!







Las chicas tuvieron la oportunidad de ver mucho de lo trabajado en el semestre: musgo, helechos, hongos, tipos de hojas... laboratorio en vivo y a todo color!!! con muucha variedad!! //  The girls have the opportunity of observe a lots of things we study!! like: moss, fungus, types of leaves.... and lots more.


Sueño hecho realidad!!! poder soplar Dientes de León!! // A wish come true..... blowing dandelion!!

Ya voy a buscar al parque de las cavernas en google y anotarlo en mi cuaderno de viajes anhelados. Algún día regrezaré a Puerto Rico y me aseguraré de pasar por este paraque.
