Cueva del Jabali may not be the most naturalist experience but the friendly workers of the nightclub offer you chairs and refreshments. You can spend easily hours, watching the water dripping from hanged bottles into stone basins and birds coming to bath and to drink. A very quiet and nice place in the morning. The place is easy to access, and because the workers of the nightclub offer water to the birds, the place attracts all imaginable warblers and rarities.
