Alta Verapaz, Part 3, The Caves

To end my weekend trip to Alta Verapaz we turned to Grutas del Rey Marcos, a cave complex a few minutes drive from Coban. These caves were discovered (or cataloged) in 1998, and still some areas are unexplored due to the water level.
Helmets and boots are required to enter the complex and is better if you bring your own flashlight because the ones they provide are very dim. Photographing at this location was rather difficult because I entered with a large group and they all were moving around, pointing their flashlights to my photos.
