Barra Honda Caves

Trips and Tours in Tamarindo, Costa Rica

Tour Description

Indulge your adventurous side with a visit to the underground caves at Barra Honda National Park.

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 offers 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. There are in total 42 caves at Barra Honda, but only one is open for 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
