Agua Verde West

Sarah and I started our hike to the Painted Caves at Aqua Verde's west anchorage. We had our destination tucked into Google Maps, our cameras, and some water. We walked but the batch of tourists on the beach just got back from a mule ride but they did not go to the caves, not possible on a mule. 

Now this hike is not the same as Monkey Mountain, it's pretty flat with just a few steep hills, but it's just as ardous. Walking on soft or drfting sand for several kilometers, then scrambling but a very steep hillside which is all gravel and loose rocks is plenty of work. 

After several kilometers of walking we sighted the cave on a steep hillside above and scrambled up to the entrances.

The Cave

There are supposed to be cave paintings inside but we didn't find any. 

  But we did find some bats.

Then came the long walk back, and when we got to our beach and then out to the boat we were ready for a swim and a beer.
