Be adventurous and step into the jungle trail that takes you to the Cave of the Blind Sardine. 


Bring your equipment so you can descend through a skylight into the abyss first, and then hang on to reach the bottom of the cave. Once on firm ground, you will feel the moisture coming from the stream that makes up the river and softens the limestone cave. 


The water turns white on contact with the sulfuric acid that is generated in the environment and it is transformed into gypsum. You will find the famous blind sardines here. They are a species of fish that have adapted to the darkness and to the natural conditions of the sulphurous water.

Be surprised by this natural wonder that has been studied by speleologists, scientists and the media.
