Do not miss this. It is quite the adventure well worth the trip especially of you like history and a bit of danger. Its a long day but well worth it. Particularly good for rowdy teens.

This cave and river hike are just amazing. It is hard to explain the experience of following the river and scrambling over rocks as you climb further and further into the cave. Our guide Francisco was amazing and instrumental in getting us through this adventure....More
