I have seen this thing for years and I thought it was kind of spooky when I first saw it, there was a different sign on it with a pitchfork. I like the cool ironwork always and still think it is a spooky, creepy cave. Cuidado el Diablo!!!!! Jeff Lee/ Kai Lee

We were told that ice use to come on ships and it was stored in the cave. Another story is that it was used to store ammunition during the war. Our grand children think it's cool and that's what counts.

Only saw it from our Tour Bus as it is barred for people to go into for safety reasons of course! Not really a spectacular thing to see otherwise.

Husband, son, and I saw this gate on our quick tour of Mazatlan. We didn't get much information about it, but we saw it. We toured in a vehicle called pumeria. It is like a mix of a Volkswagon and golf cart.

We saw people on the other side of the road taking pictures and didn't understand why until we walked a little further up and saw the gate. Got the story from our guide and found it an interesting stop on the walk.

Its a strange attraction usually included in most city tours. There are many strange rumors and theories about this cave including stories of pirates.

This picture is all and exactly what you see when you go here. It was a quick stop to see and hear the tradition/meaning. Our tour guide was great giving us information on each little stop.

You can see this attraction from the road near the cliff divers. But all there is to see is this outside façade. The cave is locked, see from the picture. There really isn't anything else to see.

Not the most exciting attraction in Mazatlan but it is across the street from lots of yummy food vendors at night!
