The Blue Tank : Cuba’s largest flooded cavern

A natural site located in the municipality of Gibara, in the north of the province of Holguin, which takes its name from a cave with a collapsed roof similar to a large natural pool that allows access to the largest flooded cavern discovered in Cuba.

Its main tourist attraction is the access to the cave itself, by a sinkhole of 30 meters long by 15 wide x 7 deep, with transparent waters and bluish reflection that gives rise to its name.

It has four kilometers of explored galleries, which enjoy acceptance for cave diving, allowing the passage through various speleothems, stalactites, stalagmites, columns and mantles.

The Blue Tank is within the ecological reserve “Caletones” one of the most important in the country, crossed by one of the most important migratory bird corridors in Cuba, with a record of 86 migratory species, nine endemic species, 11 endemic subspecies and 34 resident varieties.

Post by @CubanWindow from the original post: Cuba expert reports Havana and most tourism sites are back after Irma

Cuba took a pounding from Hurricane Irma, with severe flooding in parts of Havana and some towns wrecked along the north central coast.

By now, however, most areas of the capital and other key cities that are frequented by foreign travelers are ready to receive visitors, according to a US-based Cuba expert who just returned from a three-day inspection tour with his team on the island.

Places open for business include Havana, Santiago de Cuba, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Viñales and the cities of Camagüey and Holguín, said Collin Laverty, an expert on Cuba and US-Cuba relations and the founder and president of Cuba Educational Travel.All these cities are ‘almost untouched and fully functional,’ according to Laverty, whose company runs trips focused on art, culture, history, politics and economics.
