Some 70 m deep, flooded sinkhole with anchialine ecosystem – e.g. the groundwater in this cave is connected to the sea, while at the surface is less saline water. Here live unique species of remipedes – Lasionectes exleyi – crustaceans with the only other relative species in the Caribbean as well as some more unique organisms. These organisms are relicts of the Mesozoic era.
