Cueva de Los Verdes

The tunnel formed by the Corona Volcano is one of the most extensive and interesting planet. Along their journey, there are at least sixteen Jameos (opening or mouth area that allows access to different caves). More than six miles preface acquaintances from the crater of the volcano until it enters the sea in an underwater section of a mile called "Tunnel of Atlantis."
