Fun Info About Lanquin

These caves were one of the first national parks to be declared in Guatemala and are such a huge complex of limestone caves that not even experienced explorers have been able to find where they end.
The caves offer travelers an opportunity to explore the inner depths of the earth & if you get there at the right time you might even see thousands of bats starting their nightly flight.
