Gruta de San Pedro

What Lonely Planet called "hardly remarkable," had me, a decidedly novice spelunker in awe. A few kilometers from the tiny town of Sorata, this epic cave runs 400 meters into the ground and has a mysterious and remarkably large lagoon engulfed within its depths. The best part... the spooky and incongruous paddle boats floating in the dark lake. The ominous clicks of hidden bats echo around the space as I heave and transpire in the oppressive humidity.
