Fresh Water Cave Utila Reviews
Fresh Water Cave Mar 14, 2011
There are few caves on Utila, but I went only to this one because I found few friends to go with me.
Cave is around 3 km from the city, and you can get to it from the road that goes to the airport or dirt road that follows the coast.
When you pass the airport keep walking to the island's power station. Little, almost invisible path on the right 10m before entrance to the power station is the one to follow. After around 50m walking into the forest, you'll see hole that was once larger cave, but now obviously collapsed. Entrance to the existing cave is small and right under wooden ladder.
Be prepared to crawl in mud, sweat, and bring some light source, because it is DARK down there. Do not go in if you have problems with your knees or claustrophobia, because you wont have any fun (nor the people that have to take you out from there).
Cave is around 40-50m long and in the end opens to a bit larger dome 5x5m with height of around 2.5m.
On the right side of the "path" there is underground fresh water lake. You can jump in it in the end of the cave, but do not try to dive around.
