Price per person: € 75.00

The journey to the northwest side of the island, will carry you past the haystack hills - where the limestone washes away over the centuries leaving behind hundreds of little heavily vegetated hills where more durable rock was left. The extensive subterranean cave systems of the park are reported to be the largest in the Western Hemisphere. Your visit to the park begins with a short video as you wait to board the open air trolleys, which twist and turn their way through the road carved out of verdant foliage before reaching the moss lined entrance to the cave. After this ten minute trolley ride, multilingual cave guides will escort you on foot through the enormous cave, 200 feet high and a half-mile long. A large opening at one end of the cave allows light to filter through part of the cave, creating beautiful photographic opportunities. From this opening you will see one of the many sinkholes carved out by the Camuy River, the world’s third largest underground river.

Arecibo Observatory, the world’s largest electronic radio telescope, is a huge dish which is 1000 feet in diameter, and is suspended above a sinkhole. The personnel at the observatory have arranged a very interesting display in the main building overlooking the dish and antennae, one which truly gives you an appreciation for the mission of this unique installation (which is poised, listening for signs of extra-terrestrial life 24 hours a day). In addition, you will have an opportunity to step out onto the balcony and personally gaze out at this incredible instrument.
