Trip Planner: Central America / Costa Rica / Province of Alajuela / Arenal Volcano National Park / Venado Caves
The vast system of Venado Caves in all likelihood dates back more than 15 million years. The eight chambers of the limestone cavern stretch for almost 3 km (1.8 mi), and are filled with interesting rock formations. On a guided tour, you'll see underground streams and waterfalls, as well as stalactites, stalagmites, marine fossils, bats, and frogs. Tours include a flashlight, boots, and a tasty meal, but bring a change of clothes as you will get wet while crossing the water curtains. Arrange to visit Venado Caves and other attractions in San Rafael de Guatuso using our San Rafael de Guatuso holiday maker.
