Portraits-of-my-Land-Bayano-Caves-13Recientemente visité las Cuevas de Bayano.  Se trata de tres cuevas ubicadas en el lado sur del Lago Bayano en la Provincia de Panamá.   La primera cueva, la más grande es de aproximadamente dos kilómetros de largo. El río Seco se abre paso a través de la cueva, permitiendo que los botes puedan ir hasta la mitad interior de la caverna, pero nosotros fuimos a pie.  Muchos murciélagos viven en la cueva y habían partes que tuvimos que cruzar nadando porque estaba muy hondo.  Las cuevas segunda y tercera son menos accesibles, porque se requiere “gatear” para explorarlas, sin embargo fue realmente una experiencia inolvidable.

I recently visited the Caves of Bayano. Three caves located on the south side of Lake Bayano in the Province of Panama. The first cave, the largest is about two miles long. The Seco river runs through the cave allowing boats to go to the inner half of the cavern, however we went walking. Many bats live in the cave and there ware parts where we had to cross swimming as the river was very deep. The second and third caves are less accessible because it requires crawling” to explore them, but it certainly was an unforgettable experience.

Cheers!
