  • This tunnel was used by the train system that surrounded the island in the early 1900s that ended in the 1950s. It remains a place to visit with beatiful views of the ocean. The beach is good for surf...  more »
  • Tremendous place. Fantastic to take pictures and spend it with your family. Part of the history of Puerto Rico and Quebradillas. A spectacular, typical breeze of the beaches in the country.

  • It was very beautiful and definitely a historic place. However as the sun went down, we didn't feel comfortable staying. I totally recommend making this a stop if you are in the area. FYI There are any restrooms.
  • Beautiful views and nice nature trail through an old railroad tunnel. The beach is decent, too. Sometimes, there are vendors selling souvenirs.
  • It's a historic tunnel. Be careful when you're entering the tunnel, the walls are muddy due to water seeping down. Your eyes might not catch it at first since you are entering from the lighted into a darker area. Very scenic all around the coast. The waters and coastline after the tunnel are very treacherous but there is a safe beach just north of the tunnel. There are vendors before the entrance with local produce and eats. Please support them. I will be back.
  • Nothing really great about the tunnel but the view is nice of the ocean. Road is passable but down to one lane in some spots. PR National Guard is giving out water under the highway 2 bridge so be mindful.
  • Little devastated after the hurricane but still a beautiful area! I've seen before and after pictures and understand why the locals say the while island is devastated but for my first time I thought it was still beautiful. The tunnel here used to have a major railway that transported sugar cane. There's an interesting cave through the tunnel but you'll need a flashlight or headlamp to check it out.
