This opinion is confirmed by specialists from the Ecotur Travel Agency, which is in charge of nature and adventure tourism in this archipelago.

The entertainment industry here has many surprises, varieties and curiosities, as is the case of its cave system and its use in active vacations.

Therefore, an attractive stay on the island can be related to its cave system, a proposal suitable for speleologists, professionals or amateurs, or simply for adventurous pilgrims.

That route can include the world of caves and subway rivers that in the northwestern coast of Cuba has particular charms. Some scientific theories say that the first inhabitants of the island arrived in those areas thousands of years ago.

Its caverns served as a refuge in the midst of a suggestive and unique landscape, besides being a provisional dwelling for pirates and French corsairs in the 16th and 17th centuries.

Cuba is considered by speleologists as a 60 percent karst surface (tropical karst).

Cuba has 26 000 caves and many of them are interesting natural museums.

In Varadero resort, there is the Ambrosio cavern, whose name is due to a type of classification provided in 1967 by Cuban researcher Antonio Nuñez Jimenez (1923-1998).

These are only examples of the western region of Cuba and the famous Varadero, the island’s main sun and beach resort, but the cavern panorama is much broader and richer.
