Marvel at unusual rock formations in a kaleidoscope of colors on a tour of Cueva de los Verdes, a volcanic cave system. Its formation is a result of the eruptive activity of the La Corona volcano around 3,000 years ago, which created an underground tunnel. Listen to guide explain the unusual geology of the cave, tell how it has served as a hiding place, and reveal its special secret. The 1 km (0.6 m) cave has uneven floors, many steps, and low ceilings. It may not be suitable for those with mobility problems. Sensible shoes are recommended. PutCueva de los Verdes into our Punta Mujeres road trip planning tool and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

Very nice volcanic cave. The guided tour through the cave took around 45 minutes. Worth a visit
