Overview

Amid the hills of the Arikok National Park, you'll find the alluring entrance to the Quadiriki Cave. Crawling through the stalactites you'll notice a long, dark passageway leading down into an ancient coral formation. Here, hundreds of harmless bats have made their home amongst the cracks and niches of the cave walls. Further down the 100-foot tunnel, you'll notice traces of light that get lighter as you approach the vast cavern with two luminous openings in the ceiling acting as skylights. Check out the cave walls and you'll see some pretty cool cave paintings by the Arawak Indians, the original inhabitants of the Island. Its a little scary at first, but it's definitely worth the trip.
