Saturn's Cave

Natural magic.

If we head toward Varadero from Havana, at about 12 kilometers from Matanzas we can take a detour to visit the Cueva de Saturno, in the town of Carbonera - also known as Cueva del Cepero. This prehistoric cave is not as well known among tourists, but it's one of the most magical places on the island, with a beautiful underground lake that's 60 feet deep, with water so pure and clean that you can see down to the bottom even though there is no sunlight. Its stalagmites and stalactites make up curious geometric shapes all along the way. It's a rare treat to contemplate the stalagmites that emerge from the bottom of the lake to reach the surface, serving as proof that this lake did not exist for many thousands of years.
