  • We've been to several caves in Europe and North America, but this one stands out for the 1,000 year old drawings left by the Caquetio Indians. If you're going to look at the stalagmites, you'll be dis...  more »
  • There stalagmites,mites and columns, scant water and petrogliths from a millennium ago. Considering the harsh nature of the topography it is a testament to survival.  more »
  • Seeing the rock paintings left by the Caquetio Indians was truly amazing. The cave itself is a testament to the beauty of nature and how we should care for and respect these gifts.  more »

  • This place is so neat. There's a creek where these little fishes will nibble on your feet and remove any dead skin... sounds weird but I promise its awesome.
  • Really cool cave very interesting great tour guide lotta culture amazing pictures of the fish that eat the skin off your feet was crazy it was definitely said we should check out certainly wasn’t expecting to see all that
  • Caves are interesting but you must walk a few minutes to the left of the caves to find a small stream to dip your feet into and get a free exfoliation from the little fish in the water.
  • This is a nice place to visit. To drive to the cave and coast through the park you will need a vehicle with a good approach angle or the front of your car will scrape up in the arroyos that cross the paved road. They are numbered going up on the way in. We saw a couple whose vehicle overheated on the way in just to have the same experience on our way out 🤣. We took the same position as the nice couple that it was all part of the 'trip'. If you do go in the cave there is a natural breeze that triggers a dust spout out of the hole in the cave roof. The picture below is not a great shot of the twister.
  • Incredible cavern south of the island of Aruba with a natural source where you can soak your feet so that small fish groom them in the style of ichthyotherapy.
