......At the top of the hill there is a fork
where you go to one cave or another. There were vendors selling water,
peanuts, chips, and ice cream. We got ice cream! I feel sorry for
whoever carried the cooler full of ice cream up that hill, but I sure am
glad they did. Actually the coolers of bottled water were probably
heavier – but I had my canteen and did not need any water. Oh, my GPS
said we were at 270 meters elevation, but later at the beach it said 70
meters – so I don’t really trust the GPS on my phone. So I do not know
how high we climbed.
We spent most of our time in the
Maestranza cave. It is very large and has lots of natural light coming
in. There were sections going off into the dark but no one in our group
wanted to explore them (except me). We had some older folks with us,
and a couple kids around 7 years old. So even climbing up the hill and
down into caves is doable by most able bodied people. (Your 7 year old
may or may not be up to it… up to you.).......
