    Venado Caves
    Stop: 4 hours
    With flashlights to light our way and all the gear for the adventure, we will enter into this labyrinth of ancient underground rivers and seabeds, exposed now after thousands of millions of years. We will visit rock formations with names like, “the birthing canal”, “the papaya”, “the coral”, “the altar”. Rock formations of stalactites and stalagmites are very common inside the caves, some hanging from the rocks overhead, and others surging up from the ground. A great colony of bats inhabits the caves, as well as spiders and crabs. After the tour we will enjoy a buffet of fresh fruit. Reserve this unique experience in Costa Rica and get ready to get wet, dirty and see this different world that will astound you with a variety of emotions.
