Cueva de Saturno
Cueva de Saturno’s direct translation to English is ‘Cave of Saturn’. It’s situated one kilometre south of the Via Blanca and is one of Varadero’s top tourist attractions.
It is a freshwater subterranean cave with temperatures averaging around 20˚C. You can book onto a tour that will take you to the caves and you can either snorkel or scuba dive in its refreshing waters, if you so desire. If you opt for scuba diving, you have the chance to dive 22 metres below the surface, giving you the best opportunity to see everything deep within the cave.
The cave is known for showcasing beautiful stalactites and stalagmites rock formations, as well as a variety of different fish and blind shrimps. It is highly recommended that you visit the ‘Cave of Saturn’ whilst on holiday in Varadero. There aren’t many people around the world who can say they have dived 22 metres deep into a freshwater cave in Cuba.
