  • A must do if you're in La Fortuna are. Other than in Europe no visit through landscaped paths, but with a helmet on and boots to do you go about natural path in the cave. Crawl, roll, jump: all part of the game. Highlight is the large waterfall. Please note that your clothes dirty and wet.

  • Outside La Fortuna are the caves of Venado. On the outward journey found a faster shorter route via Google maps! This is not recommended for your car! Huge boulders and stones make this difficult and rough road. Simply take the highway route! The cave itself is absolutely special. After a helmet with light walking you down to the cave. Once you are inside walk, crawl and sneak you passages that you go through the natural cave. When you take the flashlights having 100% dark. Some "rooms" are extremely beautiful. The guides speak good English and tell fun facts about the spiders, bats and diamonds! Advice is to an adventurer. Then this unknown Pearl definitely a must!

  • If you can brave residents of the eight-legged variety, this is a MUST-SEE. The caverns are incredible. The guides are fantastic and super knowledgeable. There are lots of great surprises in store, and you will climb, swim, and hike into every one.
  • Google Maps claims no roads go to Vernado, but Waze can take you straight to the cave entrance. Or take 4 into Venado and continue through town and out the other side to the cave. Knee pads make low crawls easier, and get ready to climb through tight spaces! The guides are great, and and we had one to our 2-person group. They adjust the tour to your level. They're investing in the place, with a beautiful swimming pool. It's a great place to go underground and trek through a wet cave!
  • A fun guided river cave (low flow) with some crawling and a little climbing in spots. Lots of cave crickets and a few bats. Bring knee pads elbow pads if you have them. Fresh fruit served after.
  • There is good service, good price, the guides are amazing. The place is so natural. Las caverna is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. It is a place everyone has to visit.
  • Absolutely amazing,, brilliant guide to take us through with lots of knowledge and passion for taking tourists round the caves. The caves were fascinating to see,, so happy we visited while in Costa Rica.
