Cuevas de Santo Tomas, Vinales

4.0
#2 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 must not be very fit but the path of ascent to the cave entrance holds its own. In our group, they went up a couple of about 65-70 years and suffered greatly. That Yes, the cave is amazing. Worth the initial suffering

  • Big cave offering a 1.5 to 2 hour tour with helmets and local guides. Nicely done and in a beautiful location  more »
  • When our horse ride, we made a stop to visit the cueva. The visit is not great but it's worth it, our guide being more friendly and explaining well inside the cave

  • It was very large, but nothing spectacular. I will say that I did enjoy it though.
  • Something short of course, but interesting. The expectation is perhaps greater.
