Cueva del Indio - Atlas Obscura

Cueva del Indio

Besides being home to cave paintings and pre-Columbian Cuban archaeological remains, you get to take a boat through this stalactite and stalagmite covered cave.  


“Music is found everywhere in Cuba,” the guide said while climbing the stairs towards the entrance of Cueva del Indio, where an older gentlemen played the guitar. Past the entrance, there is a narrow trail curing around stalactite and stalagmites before coming to another set of stairs leading down to the water. A waiting boat takes visitors on a journey through the cave.

The boat captain uses a laser pointer to point at a variety of geological features and their names as you head toward the back of the cave, before turning around and heading out to the parking lot area. Once outside of the caves, if it is tourist season, you will be met by a variety of performers and souvenir sellers.
