Information gained from chronic cantabria.

On a personal level I have to comment that it is very important to bring warm clothes because the boat makes a lot more fresh than on land. In addition the organizers are asking plane carrying shoe.
The boat is beautiful and looks across the bay of Santander, since we are up magdalena. Highly recommended for children and adults. Spend a day meeting Santander and free from the sea is a great opportunity for a new vision of the city.

You can take drinks and food to the boat if you like.

A nievel fauna and the environment are some gabiotas and little else. If you explain verbally but do not see too much. Yet the ride worthwhile.

Price: 10€ per person. Admission includes free entry to the Museum of the Cantabrian Sea.

A day in the caves of Soplao. Recommendations

12 comentarios »

There are two ways to visit the caves:

  • The first is a normal mode, you get into a train that travels about 150 meters and then starts the visit. It is a quick visit and perfect for those who do not have much time.
  • The second method is to caving. It is a very easy, no complicated hayninguna and may perform any person who has no physical deficiancias is very important or higher. Rapela Not only is walking and most of the trail is a path already done. Be careful where you step when it is just the path because the soil is quite irregular. Not bear even shoes for that. I saw some boys who took him and only managed to get dirty and then clean the base manguerazo boots that are always first a little dirty and wet. They provide special shoes and a sweatshirt for the occasion without any extra charge. It is necessary to call to book:

Information and booking:
902 82 02 82
Reservations Groups:
After consulting for availability and requirements in this phone.
Monday through Friday from 8 to 22 hours.
Saturdays from 10 to 22 hours.
Sundays from 9 to 15 hours.
The only thing is you might have some difficulty (and seeing as it will depend on the guides to the group) is going through a small hole under a rock, but you will spot is filled and exciting. Whoever wants to can go around without having to do so.
I recommend strongly to the second option. The truth that lasts two hours and a half and is a past. We live much the cave and learned much more about it.
The route to get there is very nice and from the Cantabrian motorway exit was announced as the Cave Soplao thus only be alert to this indication. From the exit to the cave goes through several towns and a climb that seems very nice that you’re going up to 3000 meters, also from the top seems very high but you’re actually at about 1000 meters.
For lunch there are some very attractive people with interesting menus. as one goes up there, be a good meal. To lower the food is good m uy a walk around any track of any people for there is much lush forest in the area.
I hope you enjoy it!

Hello everybody,
Nothing better to recommend a place to visit first and so I did. First note that entries can be drawn in the same hotel for a euro less than the cost at the box office. There are also some very important recommendations that I should not miss the visit of the park Cabárceno:

  • Technical flight birds of prey: the show is not wasted. Upon entering the park, provides a map of the site as well as such events in the same brochure. It is important to find the time (I abjo more hours) to first release and you get a good second place. The event takes place in an amphitheater, the best location is on the right side when viewed from the front from where they enter. Please be assured that the birds fly and stay very close even more impressed.
  • Demonstration with sea lions: This event is spectacular, it is also important to get a little time to watch either. Pass .. is to see it.
  • Bears: Because there are  (Sigue leyendo.)
