    Jameos del Agua offers a truly unique experience with tunnels, caverns, a salt lake, and an underground concert hall besides dining options. Ever imagined dancing inside a volcanic cavern?

    Make sure to wear comfy shoes if you want to party all night long. The volcanic floor is uneven, so it’s a good idea to ditch those stilettos and platforms.
