SPELEOLOGY

SPELEOLOGY

Make your way through the inside of earth to live an extraordinary experience. This cavern is  sculpted by El Bornego, a creek that runs throughout its entire length, spanning over 400 meters. For millions of years, these waters have eroded marble walls and crevices into smooth tunnels and  monumental and galleries. Groundwaters filtrating  from the ceiling have poured thousands of stalactites over the ages. These calcium precipitations serve as nesting ground for the mysterious Oil Birds or Guacharos (Steatornis Caripensis), nocturnal birds that use echolocation to navigate in the dark. Along the entire course of the cave, visitors will experience a myriad textures, forms, and volumes created by the play of light and shadow upon stalactites and stalagmites, speleothems, among other geological  formations which will leave an unforgettable impression.

In order to get to the entrance of the cave, visitors have to hike along a trail that winds up the canyon for about an hour.
