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

    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.

    Apart the caves you can appreciate typical dances of the island, the coconut museum and other attractions, take repellent for mosquitoes.
