Sanctuary

By CraigBill    





Iíve always have an affinity for the world down under - no, not Australia, but the landscape below our feet. An entire world of its own, away from the changing, dynamic and busy environment above. And when I arrived my first time into Puerto Rico, I immediately searched out and cavern locations, especial y since I had not yet seen a tropical cave system.

Rio Camuy Cave was highly recommended and I wasted no time driving about an hour or two toward the west side of the island. Although this cave was fashionably hot, it was dreamy... Drippy, slick and misty. This was different from the desert caves such as Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico USA. An because of this, Rio Camuy had a unique mood. It was obvious that rain water had a lot to do with the life of the cave.

Rio Camuy Caves are probably the most well known cave formation in Puerto Rico. Located in the town of Camuy, this is one of the largest cave systems worldwide, as it turns out. There are about a half million bats living in the cave, and you can hear an underground river while youíre treading inside it. I then turned around and went through the cave again on the way out , it looked totally different.
