The Camuy River (Spanish: Río Camuy; pron. ka-MOO-ee) is a river in Puerto Rico. It is the third largest underground river in the world and[1] helped shape the cave system known as the Rio Camuy Caves.[2][3][4]

The river and water flow systems of Río Camuy were studied by the US Geological Service in 1995.[5]
