Video: Underground adventure awaits at Barra Honda caves
Barra Honda in Guanacaste is the only national park in Costa Rica established to protect caves — some 42 of them, including the spectacular Caverna Terciopelo.
Inside this cave, you’ll see a variety of interesting stalactites and stalagmites named after the ordinary things they look like (say, fried eggs). It’s open to visitors 12 years old and up, though there is also a small cave open to children.
If you go, be sure to wear closed-toed shoes because you can’t enter the cave in flip-flops.
Reporter and videographer Amanda Zúñiga recently did all of the above and produced this video. Enjoy.
