Gruta del Quintero (Quintero cave) is named after the nearby town Quintero. It is not very good developed, semi-wild, but rather easy to visit. It is signposted and there are guides.

The cave is inhabited by a colony of Mexican bats (Tadarida brasiliensis mexicana). They can be observed flying out of the cave in the evening after dusk.
