Destination Details

Arenal, Costa Rica

Set within the northern lowlands of Costa Rica, the Venado Caves offer visitors a rare glimpse into a mystical underground world – one that is filled with stalactites and stalagmites, caverns, rivers, fossils, and strange subterranean creatures.

This 2,700-meter stretch of limestone caves is thought to have formed some 15 to 20 million years ago, the result of both tectonic shifting and a forceful underground river. After their formation, the caves remained below sea level for a long amount of time. Finally brought to the surface following further tectonic movement, the caves were eventually stumbled upon by the Guatuzos aborigines.
