La Gloria well: located less than 1 km from El Salitre, it is a natural well where people go swimming and enjoy barbecues. La Cueva el Perico: natural cave located about 3 km from the main road that leads to El Mararay village. La Peña del Cajón: Natural formation in the form of a cut in the ground, which has a height of 110 mt at its highest point, ideal for rappelling.
