This cache location will lead you to the mysterious "Iguana Cave"
that I've named "Arawak Indian Cave Cache" after the native indians
of the Island of Anguilla. It is little known by locals or tourists
and unpublished anywhere other than one website called
Anguilla-beaches.com.... a blog of sorts thats very helpful and
intuitive to getting to know Anguilla.
There are two ways to get here...one a simple park and short
walk, and one requiring a nice little hike through the jungle on a
fairly well-beaten path. I will include the waypoints for both.
"Waypoint A" is where to park for the hiking version of finding
the cache. You will need to follow signs to Crocus Bay, turning
left before "Da Vida" restaurant and "Why Knot" clothing and
fashions.. You will break off the paved road to find "Masara
Resort" and follow the windy road down to Katouche Bay. Don't worry
about trespassing...all roads leading to a beach or bay are given
right-of-way and egress for anybody wishing to get to the beaches
and there is a parking area at the very bottom of the steep hill.
From parking area "Waypoint A" you will need to find "Waypoint
B"...the trailhead into the jungle which you will take to hike to
the cache. Follow the trail to the right and around the old shallow
pond. You will come across an ancient sistern...a well for
collecting and holding water that is probably 200 years old. There
is only one fork in the path. Stay to the right. The path will
begin to ascend...you will pass a set of natural rock stairs, and a
group of cactus guarding the entrance to the cave.
"Waypoint C" is the coordinates for the place to park for a
quick and easy path to the cache. You will need to drive around
finding the roads leading you here which isn't hard. Once you find
the coordinates for "Waypoint C", park and walk the path towards
the ocean and coast which will take you to the cache
The cache is not in the cave, it is on the opposite side of the
trail where you will cut in near a group of cacti. Be sure to go in
the cave while you're here...it's not dangerous and there is ample
light once you're inside. There may be bats but they don't bother
you. THere is an awesome tree growing inside the cave getting light
from a hole in the "roof". Be sure to bring a camera and take pics
inside the cave. We captured some bizarre "orbs" in our
photos...perhaps ghosts of Arawak Indians?
