Tiger Cave| Intensity: Easy
This cave, named as such because villagers once saw a dog chase a jaguar cub into the cave, is about an hour and a half hike from the village of San Miguel, in the Toledo District. The hikes to the cave pass through modern-day Maya farms and Milpas. Not many get to see this unique cave as it is on private land but it would be a great experience for those interested in going.
