  • Description Caves: San Ambrosio Cave, Varadero Beach. Cuba

    Two out of the fifteen archeological sited discovered at the peninsula that reveal the customs of the area’s indigenous population are both located in the Varahicacos natural park. Traces of pre-Columbian inhabitants (72 rupestrian paintings) can be found in local burial plots that go back 2000 years, representatives of the agro-alfarera taino culture. The primitive pictographs and carsic formations in the Cave of San Ambrosio are surprising. The first one is a 250 meter long cave with five interconnected galleries. During the colonial period, it also served as safe heaven for maroons, or black runaway slaves. Los Musulmanes’ path, with its great diversity of plants and animals, also presents several interesting geographic points as does.

    San Ambrosio Cave
    Ambrosio's Cave is about 250 metres long and has 5 galleries that interconnect. The walls of the cave have numerous drawings that make up one of the largest collections of Indian pictographs in the Caribbean. During the slave trade, many runaways hid out in the cave systems. In the district are salt works and it is believed that the famous sea captain, Sir Francis Drake, stopped to take on salt used for preserving meat on his way back to England.

    “A hidden gem ”
    This attraction is not very well advertised, but it is worth a peek. It is a connected set of caves featuring ancient pictographs on the walls, an interesting history and bats. What's not to like about that? It's a cool place to visit on a hot day.

    There are tons of bats on the ceiling, and quite a few cave drawings. The natural beauty of the caverns was beautiful and the tour guide made this well worth the $5CUC. It takes less than 30 to complete.
