PUERTO RICO where to go
 

Indian Sculpture
Cacíque Mabodomaca was one of the leaders during the Indian Wars. His chiefdom covered Quebradillas, Camuy and Isabela. Before the European invasion this area was one of the most important Taíno chiefdoms and was known as Guajataca (Taíno for "The Water Ladle"). Legend has it that when his warriors could no longer hold back the European invaders he led his people along the Guajataca River and disappeared into the Island's central mountain range. Route # 113 (Quebradillas-Isabela) has been renamed "Avenida Cacíque Mabodomaca" in honor of this great leader.

   

Río Camuy Cave Park
There are only two other places in the world where you will find a cave system as massive or dramatic as the Río Camuy Cave Park – and neither of them has a tropical underground river thundering through it. Only a small part of the complex is open to the public: three crater-like sinkholes and two caves… but what a spectacular part it is! Visitors ride a trolley that descends into a sinkhole lined with dense tropical vegetation while a guide describes the sights. After a walk across ramps and bridges and through the dramatically illuminated, 170-foot high Cueva Clara, another tram shuttles you to a platform overlooking the 400 foot deep Tres Pueblos Sinkhole.

Golf Course
Located in the former Ramey Air Force Base, this 18-hole course is one of the best maintained and breeziest on the island. The course is on the island's north-western tip. The fees are relatively inexpensive, which makes the course very accessible. There is no need for a tee time reservation, and clubs are available for rental. Only soft spikes are allowed here.

   

Jacinto Blowhole
El Pozo de Jacinto is a place of good luck for everyone except the farmer who the place is named. The story is about Jacinto who had a favorite cow which he kept tied to himself while he was pasturing his herd. The cow apparently got to close to the edge and fell in, dragging Jacinto. Today, it is said to be lucky to shout, “Jacinto! Dame la vaca!” (Give me the cow!) as the spray comes up.
