Morgan's Cave, San Andres

1.8
#5 of 6 in Nature in San Andres Island
The legend of hidden treasure lures tourists to Morgan's Cave, allegedly the site of pirate Henry Morgan's buried bounty. Some 120 m (400 ft) deep, the cave can only be viewed from its mouth, but remains a part of nearly every tour of San Andres Island. A replica of the cave and Morgan's boat help bring the legend to life, while staff performs the traditional mento dance. Hear stories of the Caribbean's pirate past, while getting a look at modern island culture.

  • place famous for stories of pirates who have visited the island... you can reach very easily the cave but charge you for entering...

  • Poorly preserved place, full of mosquitoes, with some very bad figures made of pirates, a show of music and fun. Pass away!

  • It is a place if you go through you need to know. Make you a guided tour and tell you the story of the pirate Morgan. It is ok.

  • Sadly, they managed to take an intresting place with an impressive collection and made it a boring tour. The guide was really bad and lacking passion. Would not recomend going there, and if you do go - read about Captain Morgan's history online and come ready.
  • Beaches, specially El Acuario visited until 2pm are among the best in the Caribe. However, San Andrés as a city lacks of classy tourism facilities, organization, cleanliness, amenities, etc.
  • Can be managed better. Too costly entrance ticket of 5$
  • Everything is made for tourists but still beautiful
  • Apart the caves you can appreciate typical dances of the island, the coconut museum and other attractions, take repellent for mosquitoes.
