Cuevas de Santo Tomas, Vinales

3.6
#3 of 9 in Parks in Pinar del Rio Province
Enjoy an atypically comfortable stroll and cruise on the small river flowing through the dark caverns of Cuevas de Santo Tomas. Cave exploration is often perceived as a strenuous experience, but that's not the case here. After taking a short walk through the cave and observing the stalactite and stalagmite formations, you can hitch a relaxing ride on a boat to a landing outside. Due to the lack of light, narrow spaces and uneven terrain, the experience might not be suitable for elderly people or children.

    We very much enjoyed this half-day excursion. We took a taxi (the price for three people was in the August 2017 20 CUC (back and forth including wait time), admission 10 CUC per person, which was together still cheaper than an organised excursion). For the hell you need sturdy shoes anyway, also a bit fit one should be (the tour where it goes uphill and downhill, takes about 1,5 hour) and have no fear of heights - but it is already a family trip. In the cave itself are to see stalactites and stalagmites and bats that wander around.

    The Cuevas de Santo Tomas was part of the Vinales Tour we did by bus. The most impressive view, in my opinion, is actually when you arrive at the cave. If you stand in front of it, the cave is surroun...  more »

    You have to enter by passing a cave but the reality is that much to see there isn't. It is a short tour and to pay some 3CUC to enter.

    It was very large, but nothing spectacular. I will say that I did enjoy it though.
