  • Easy location from the city of Aiguá, Maldonado the caves of Salamanca is a real treasure of Uruguay, First a trail well marked and with help of a few steps, then amazing halls under the mountain form interesting caves that generate good photos ... Following the trail it is possible to climb up the rock and show the immense plain.

  • A beautiful place no doubt but that it should improve in terms of tourist. No doubt Uruguay is not prepared to receive tourists and sell you the wealth that have these places. No one tells you the story because there are no guide. But there is a legend about a matrero would have hidden in this cave in the 19th century. On the other hand the Salamanca name comes from the indigenous language, in reference to the word Salamanac, which means place of occult ritual. To improve about the way and take into account: 1) footwear to walk among rocks, closed and covering the ankles, is a place where snakes and arthropods can find us surprise 2) bring water on hot days to not dehydrate 3) special care with rocks which have given Moss which can make you easily slip really a beautiful place of our country that are not properly exploited and if we did so we would have a much more fluid tourism and numerous

  • There are two very important aspects to take into account, the caves are really beautiful, the setting is spectacular, the nature and the life that can be seen from the top you will draw more promptly, the other thing to keep in mind is that there is a complete tourist service, there is no tour or special services, if there are bathrooms and cabins. There is a rest that I saw one once it open insurance soon will be improved services the truth is that when safety fences, insurance you will be very quiet because not they flock to the place. The easiest reach is by car and from water towards the caves is not very nice but is a couple accessible dirt road. The environment is worthwhile and the place itself also, essential visit if you are in the area.
