The low-lying Cave of the Swallows or Cueva de las Golondrinas is tucked along the scraggly Atlantic coastline of Río San Juan, just a five-minute boat ride from town. An optional stop on tours of Laguna Gri Gri, your captain will steer the boat inside the small cavern–watch your head–to view its rock composition from ceiling to floor while you float on crystal clear turquoise waters. Once the boat exits the cave, you can choose to swim in the calm natural pool surrounding the area.🤿🐠  Tag someone you'd love to explore this astonishing place with. 👯‍♀️🌞  📸: @nomadavirtual
