Caves are wondrous structures that sometimes are natural, or excavated into being the perfect home. This could have been done by ancient natives, or more recently, but either way, staying in a rock enclosed tunnel has its benefits. First of all, it’s refreshingly different from the average hotel, and many of our picks are near villages. Secondly, the temperature and absence of lighting are prime for excellent sleep. Intrigued? These are the coolest cave Airbnbs in the world.
