Looking for something a little more "underground"? Then the Venado Caves Tour is the one for you! Join us on this fascinating subterranean adventure where we'll hike through the endless maze of caverns of an underground river. An activity termed Spelunking or Potholing depending on what part of the world you are visiting Costa Rica from. The Venado Caves are estimated to be nearly 20 million years old, formed by underground streams that still flow through the limestone caves today. What an incredibly unique opportunity to explore Arenal off the beaten path!
Get down and dirty as our expert guides help you navigate the caves' narrow passages, leading you to incredible chambers filled with ancient stalactites, stalagmites, unique rock formations, fossils, and wildlife such as bats, cave fish, frogs, spiders and crickets. Be blown away by all that the Venado Caves have to offer on this fun, informative, and unique caving tour. This tour is very "hands-on", and you should expect to get muddy! To maximize your comfort and enjoyment of our time together, be sure bring a change of clothes and a plastic bag for your wet ones.
We offer special discounts on the Venado Caves Tour and many others tours in the Arenal region and throughout all of Costa Rica. Don't miss out on the fun of this unique once in a lifetime opportunity. Save money and book your spot with the Real Deal Tours today!
