Destroyed National Treasure May 09, 2012
Taulabe is the cave system near the town of the same name on the highway from San Pedro Sula to Tegusicalpa, next to the Lago Yojoa. It used to be beautiful cave, but it is almost totally destroyed, with most of the stalactites broken. Touristic path of the cave is simply a sad sight, and only way to enjoy this cave is to stray outside of the path and go deep into cavern system

At the end of the tourist path, go right into the tunnels. You must have lamps (and backups) and good shoes, because it is very dark and slippery. On the way you will encounter numerous vandalism, including broken pieces and paint spray graffiti… Cave is still unexplored, so go in the group and be very careful. There are many crevasses’, walls to climb, small tunnels to go through, and it is mostly in the wet slippery mud. Further you go, nicer the cave gets and you will encounter large domes and stone waterfalls. Deeper you go less air there is, and we turned back when our lighter could not light up any more and our breath was quick and shallow… There are guides that you can hire to take you around, but they are not necessary. Tell receptionist that you are going deeper so that they know that you are inside (they almost locked us in…). Cost is 4$ for foreigners.

Good Luck and enjoy.
