Description

The oldest cave in the Agua Blanca system. To get there, follow the main walkway and climb up the stairs that lead to the entrance. Once inside, the space is divided into three galleries. The one on the right leads to an exit to the jungle where the floor is covered with a carpet of shells. The central gallery leads to a huge chamber with two exits to the jungle, one of them is right on top of the cavern. The third, which is also the longest, has three rooms in which you can see extraordinary formations.

Today the cave is equipped with paths and lighting so that tourists can roam more comfortably and safely. However, only one-fifth of the system is open to the public.
