Barra Honda Caves Tour

Nicoya

Plunging deep into the earth (in some places as far as 787 ft.), the limestone caves at Barra Honda glisten with stalagmites and stalactites, and offer up a wonderful place for adventurous underground exploration.

This guided tour begins with a short hike through the park's dry tropical forest before heading underground. As you walk through the forest, you may be able to spot coatis, agoutis, anteaters, and monkeys. Descending into caves, you'll hear the sound of water dripping against rocks and see the twisted, ghost-like formations of hardened calcium all around you. In total, there are 42 caves at Barra Honda, but only one is open to visitors. After an hour of exploring the ins-and-outs of the cave system, you'll emerge above ground and have lunch.
This is an all day tour.

A minimum of two people is required for booking.
