  • A place not to be missed! Very interesting, by the natural wonders that we can appreciate both the legends that adorn the place. However, I do not recommend it for anyone. While the tour is not complex, it has certain requirement that is not recommended for large people, or people with claustrophobia. I recommend to wear gloves to enjoy a little more :)

  • The wonderful place. But those who manage it not alert you how dangerous that is to enter with children and people who are not trained to climb. Sometimes only matter charge entry

  • I loved to know these caverns open to the public concession to a private company, guides are excellent and for the adventurous, it is a great experience to see the inside of our mountains, is not to be missed, is 8 km of gravel into the route.
