It might not be your first priority to visit since it is quite far away but it is by far a unique experience to see how 1,500,000 birds fly out of a cave for more than an hour! The pictures can not describe the experience.

A big hole in the ground where the swallows come out early in the morning and return in the afternoon. You can do rapel, but it is pretty expensive. Access is through a really weird rock formation.

It is quite a journey to get to the cave. You have walk pretty far. It basically a big hole in the ground. It is kind of cool to look at, but not a must see in my opinion.
