The caves' pool consists of a layer of fresh water sitting atop salt water, while the passages within the cave extend 900 m (3000 ft) horizontally.

  • A cave filled with still murky water that is accessible by one winding staircase. Nothing much to see. No exotic fishes or good views.  more »
  • I learned that there were native americans on the island before the arrival of Columbus et al. which was interesting.  more »
  • Found a guided tour for 40 bucks per person. Bus took us to Ben's cave, to see some mangroves, the city, and even some old houses (ravaged by hurricanes lol). 10/10 for the price.  more »
