Camuy Overview

The city of Camuy has two nicknames, "La Ciudad del Sol Taino", which means the “City of the Taíno Sun”, or "La Ciudad Romantica" meaning “Romantic City”. It is said the city’s name was derived from the Taíno word for sun, which is Camuy. Others believe that it was named after the Camuy River. No matter how the name originated, one thing is for certain - it is a breathtaking city. The sprawling beaches lined with large palm trees and the beautiful coastal sunsets are a sight many visitors will never forget.

The Rio Camuy Caverns, also known as the Rio Camuy Cave Park, is set on 268 acres of park grounds with picnic areas, a souvenir shop, trails and a very interesting exhibition hall. Due to its popularity, it is suggested that reservations are made in advance. The caves were opened to the public in 1987, even though their existence had been know by the Taíno people for centuries and it became a significant research site for speleologists from the 1950’s. The caves were formed by the Camuy River and are accessible through a sinkhole, which is 200 feet deep. Once in the caves visitors will be transported into a magical world of cathedral-like caverns, limestone sculptures and glistening stalactites and stalagmites. The clear water and caressing rays of the sun make the caverns dance with light. It is also the third largest system of caves and caverns in the world.

This majestic destination in Puerto Rico is a fascinating and historically rich city. Over and above having some of Puerto Rico’s most breathtaking attractions, Camuy also boasts colorful and rhythmic festivals throughout the year. It is a seaside resort with many hidden treasures and diverse adventures.
