Cave Nature / Park
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. Put Morgan's Cave on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our San Andres Island itinerary planner.

  • I was pleasantly surprised by the site. There are two real caves plus museum exhibits of artefacts from the 17th century onwards.Not one of those stupid "experience" things. They also let us visit ind...  more »
  • We felt embarrassed to be witnesses to this "attraction". Your 15,000 COP gets you admission to a small, musty cave, several pirate "replicas", some trinkets and local art on display, and a dance show...  more »

  • 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$
  • Apart the caves you can appreciate typical dances of the island, the coconut museum and other attractions, take repellent for mosquitoes.
  • That's so so. the staffs hurry everybody up all the time and not that interesting.
  • The tour is not organized and the guides make no effort to pass the information about the place and history. You can take some funny pictures... But don't dare to try the tasting of the local liquor.. They reuse the plastic cups without washing!!
