Guatemala‘s Underground Bases


ALTA VERAPAZ , GUATEMALA
Functions: Unknown
Levels: Unknown
Tunnels to: Unknown
Notes: In or near the town of Languin in the departamento of Alta Verapaz, and 30 miles NE of Coban, a group of young men walked through a cave/tunnel entrance and 8 days later emerge into a large cavern illuminated by a volcanic cone far above [possibly SW corner of Izabal departamento - Sierra De Los Minas range?], where they see a fish laden subterranean river, beyond which the passage continued NW, some suspect to the Silpino Cave area near the town of Cayuga!?

CAYUGA , GUATEMALA
Functions: Unknown
Levels: Unknown
Tunnels to: Unknown
Notes: Cayuga-#1 or Silpini cave is reached by leaving Guatemala City going NE on Highway CA9 en route to Port Barrios on the Caribbean coast, passing on the way the town of Morales and continuing to Cayuga village before the Tenedores turn off is reached. A few yards NE on highway CA9 from Cayuga village, on the west side of the road, is the entrance to Silpino Cave, which was discovered by highway construction crews while carving out a hillside, although locals later built a stone doorway set with an iron gate which at last word usually remains unlocked.
A narrow passage continues north from the main room which then turns west. One report stated that a man from nearby Morales followed the passage, which later widens, SW for 15 days, after which he turned around. After 30 days in the cave his body was swollen, he was sick and had to stay in a hospital for 2 years!
Locals say that the tunnel was excavated by the Mayas [or at least parts of it extended by the Mayas!?], and that “stone idols” can be seen in some section.

It is said to be part of the Silpino cave system [NE branch?] and has MANY branching tunnels, “stone statues of owls”, a “river with fish and a light cold wind [that] blows… there was a place where their watches stopped dead and all of their flashlights went out… once a “Gringo” went into that tunnel and never came out again” [at least not out of THAT entrance].

Santa Cruz del Quiche, Guatemala
Functions: Unknown
Levels: Unknown
Tunnels to: Unknown
Notes: Near the town of Chajul, in the state or department of Quiche, locals tell of a nearby cave, in the second level of which is a seemingly bottomless shaft. In the lower room is a huge goblet carved [by Mayas?] out of solid stone. No comment as to whether the shaft is natural or artificial was offered.
