More information about the excursion to the Crystal Blue Ice Cave:

Important note: Sometimes it is not possible to access the cave due to the climate. If the rain has been intense the days before the trip, the cave may be full of water, which will have to be cleared before entering. If this happens, other cave-like formations such as glacial arches will be explored. Your guide will bring you as close to the entrance of the crystal blue ice cave as possible and walk around the area to create, in the same way, a memorable adventure.
