Overview

The region in which this park is situated is known as "karst country" a stretch of uneven terrain in the Northwest region caused by the erosion of some of the largest limestone in Puerto Rico. This park has long attracted visitors from all over the world because of it gives an amazing glimpse into the underground geography of Puerto Rico. Above ground, the karst landscape is also impressive as it is composed of hills with sharp peaks (mogotes) and dramatic sinkholes (sumideros).

Admission includes trip to Clara Cave Junction and an audio tour.
