  • Be sure to visit this place, in the guided tour you can see bats, spiders and other insects, also a natural rock formation of singular beauty, walk between the super cold water rich, I loved it as natural and different experience.

  • 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.

  • Amazing place, must see. We went with a guide not from the place. Absolutely need a guide, but you can drive up and they gave guides. But, we heard that the drive you're sometimes have too many people to enjoy the visit. Our guide took the two of us and knew a lot. We saw a rare frog on the way... Picture posted.
  • Great time spelunking with our guide Ronaldo. It was challenging at some tight places but we got through most of them! You can rent rubber boots at the front counter for free. If you have big calves like me, ask for ankle boots. Take a shower after and bring a change of clothes and towels. One of the best adventures to do in Costa Rica.
  • 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.
