Cave
Explore Bellamar Caves, an ancient cavern system with intricate rock formations. Venture into the deepest caves in Cuba, which, discovered in 1861, rank among its oldest tourist attractions. Descend a large man-made staircase into the cavern, where you can explore 1 km (0.6 mi) of the vast system. Admire the stalactites, stalagmites, and glittering crystalline formations that grace the cavern walls, and consider taking a drink from the "fountains" of love and youth.
