La Cueva del Agua

La Cueva del Agua is a cavity flooded by the waters of a thermal aquifer. Located in Isla Plana in the province of Murcia, it is composed of a network of galleries of several kilometers of development and that continues in exploration. On the surface the water has a temperature of about 18 ° but from 6 m it rises to 30 °. Although its waters are crystal clear, they are used as one of the most dangerous caves in Spain and it is easily disturbed. It is a cave with a labyrinthine path with constant ramifications that makes orientation difficult.
