The Marble Caves are amazing and beautiful! We did two options -- the boat ride and the kayaks. I'm glad I did both -- the kayaks feel much more intimate and let you really soak in the spectacle of it. We got extremely lucky and...More

We couldn’t take a boat trip to the caves the day we arrived in Puerto Rio Tranquilo, because the wind was way too strong, so the port was closed down. But we booked a trip for the next morning at sunrise, despite a windy forecast....More

Don’t miss the opportunity to visit this amazing natural rock formation, many forms, the colors of the lake are marvelous, many people on high seasons. They also recommend to visit the marble caves at Puerto Sánchez, not so popular and great place as well.

Unique and magnificent little piece of nature. Cant be missed as part of the Route 7 road trip. Do not make the same mistake as me and jump in the first boat you encounter. It was great but we paid 70k for a private tour....More
