If you are feeling extra adventurous and brave, your next vacation destination must be the Venado Caves. The Venado Caves are a horizontal cave system, different from a vertical cave system which requires harnesses and climbing equipment. Your local guide will provide all the equipment you need to explore these thousand-year-old caves; just bring yourself and your adventurous curiosity!
As you enter the cavern, you will first see a subterranean river before entering the dark depths of the cave. Here, your local guide will expertly show you the hidden fossils, antique coral reefs, stalagmites and stalactites, and many bat species living inside. After this two hour hike, have a few moments to relax in the pool or with a shower before leaving the town of Venado.
I was born and raised in Costa Rica where I grew up in the rural area of Liberia. I was lucky to have grown up in Liberia, an area known for its vivid culture, zipline tours, and diverse natural wonders that only begin with its beautiful beaches, tropical dry forests, and volcanoes. In addition to the gorgeous environment I grew up in, I also constantly traveled to the far corners of Costa Rica with my family ever since I was a child. All of this has made me into the nature-loving person I am today! I love the outdoors, and even today I live near the Arenal Volcano and Monteverde. I love taking the time to observe nature, whether it is by birdwatching in the day or taking photos of frogs or snakes around my house in the evening. And of course, I love being able to explore nature with my job! My favorite part about being a tour guide is not only being immersed in nature but also being able to have the opportunity to meet new people and understand others’ ways of seeing the world.
