...........A very peculiar feature of Cuba is the abundance of caverns in the limestone deposits that
underlie much of the island's surface.

The caves of Cotilla near Havana, of Bellamar near Matanzas, of Monte Libano near Guantanamo,
and those of San Juan de los Remedios, are the best known, but there are scores of others.

Many streams are " disappearing," part of their course being through underground tunnels. Thus the
Rio San Antonio suddenly disappears near San Antonio de los Banos; the cascades of the Jatibonico
del Norte disappear and reappear in a surprising manner; the Moa cascade (near Guantanamo) drops
300 ft. into a cavern and its waters later reissue from the earth; the Jojo river disappears in a great
" sink " and later issues with violent current at the edge of the sea.

The springs of fresh water that bubble up among the keys of the S. coast are also supposedly the
outlets of underground streams.........


It's very difficult to get information about Cuba, even if one goes to 'Google - Canada', so I was
very happy to run ito a blogger with a lot of pictures.

I hope they come through!
