  • 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'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.
  • Very beautiful! I never got tired of seeing the ocean here. And the walk through the tunnel was great.
  • Beautiful place, try not going on the weekend because there's too many people visiting. Would recommend a swim there's great waves here unlike everywhere else! Unfortunately there's lots of trash everywhere because Puerto Ricans just love to throw trash around instead of taking it away with them....but that's the same everywhere in PR. If you can overlook that it's a great place to visit for a few hours!
