Lanquin Cave Aug 02, 2012
Lanquin cave is seriously beautiful cave and national park 15 minutes walk from the center of the town. There is small fee (around 30q if I remember correctly) to get into the cave area but guide is not necessary. Path takes you pretty far into the cave but you should get good shoes when going in because everything is very wet and slippery. Around the path there are lights powered with generator but you should have your own light and see things differently. After the path ends there is much more cave to explore but I did not have any equipment so I did not do it…

Right after the sunset lots of bats fly out of the cave and it is very special to see it. Usually, guards have some lamps, but bring some too so you can all put some light to the cave opening and see those bats better. Right under the entrance of the cave Rio Lanquin comes out to surface from its own cave. It is sizable river and it is very special to jump in its water and enjoy the jungle like scenery.

One of my favorite caves ever !
