Hampton Beach in all its glory.
On the second day there, we traveled to Cuevas el Soplao. They looked like how I imagine the entrance to Hell will be like.
The most prominent feature of the caves though are the crystal structures. These stalactites don't grow in the traditional way. They defy gravity and end up pointing off in all directions, seemingly at random.
These structures can be found in other caves, but none of them have as many as Cuevas el Soplao. As tempting as they were to touch, doing so would get you sued. I had to restrain myself, but I left the caves without a single lawsuit.
The next day we visited another cave. This one, Cueva el Castillo, is important more for its history than its architecture. These caves were occupied by ancient man and were filled with various drawings. It was almost disturbing seeing the negative-prints of these people's hands.
It was humbling to realize just how many people have gone through this world that we don't remember and how brief our lives are in the scheme of things. But before I digress into any philosophy, I'll just say that Cantabria is a unique place and definitely worth the long bus ride.
