  3. Cuevas de Bellamar


This 45-minute journey into the underworld takes the visitor through 300 meters of the 500-metre cave system known as the Cuevas de Bellamar. These caves were discovered in 1861 and soon became one of Cuba's main tourist attractions because of the beauty of the secondary formations. Throughout the tour there are halls and galleries of incredible beauty, fountains, stalactites and stalagmites, crystallized domes and other formations bearing names such as La Fuente del Amor (Fountain of Love) or La Galería Coco Rallado (Grated Coconut Gallery). Once outside the caves, there is a cafe-restaurant along with shops.
