Gruta de San Pedro
Gruta de San Pedro information
Although it’s not the most spectacular of caves, Gruta de San Pedro makes for a popular excursion. The cave is approximately 400m deep with an enclosed lagoon, and though it is no longer possible to swim in it, the lagoon can be crossed in pedal boats.
It’s a scenic 6km hike to the cave along a dirt road (two hours each way). Taxis will do the return trip for around B$30, including waiting time. The local community has also set up two simple albergues (basic accommodations) to overnight in. There are a total of four rooms with a single bed in each and prices are negotiable. Remember that all proceeds go to help the community, so be generous.
