Barra Honda National Park protects a cave system that plunges hundreds of meters into the earth. Venture down and visit this strange world of bats and stalactites.
The cave systems hold mesmerizing limestone forms, sculpted over millions of years by a combination of rainwater and gravity. Your light throws eerie shadows off the bizarre shapes. Stalactites mark the way as you delve deeper.
Sweeping your lamplight around a chamber, don’t be surprised to see dozens of bats roosting in the ceiling, awaiting nightfall—a common sight in this often overlooked ecosystem.
