Rincón de Parangueo Crater

You enter this enigmatic lake-crater through a tunnel about 1,500 feet (500 meters) long, which local children are in charge of lighting. Most of the route is dark and narrow, until you leave the tunnel and everything is transformed.

At the other end of the tunnel you’re hit with the sensation that you’ve just reached another planet. The scenery is something completely unexpected: a white desert. If it weren’t for the inescapable heat, you could mistake it for a snowy landscape. A small reddish lake and green hill surrounding the ghostly crater provoke beautiful contrasts to the white soil.
