  • Big cave with lots of rooms and easy to navigate as a couple big rooms have skylights (holes in ceiling to outside...). Signs reminding you to be quiet since bats live inside, which we saw plenty of!
  • The notable Guadirikiri Cave got my particular attention for its two large dome-shaped chambers illuminated by the sunlight streaming through holes in the roof of the cave. The cave extends for about 100 feet. So I needed a flashlight to explore this spot gem. ****
  • Worth the stop, for the petroglyphs.
  • Great place to learn, very important to the story to the entrance of the cave
