  • My absolute favourite cave. You have to dive, climb, sled, also. Really great. Highly recommend even it is not to easy to reach. 
  • We left from Lanquin and got to the park right when it opened, there was one other group that was all ready out there. The pools were wonderful to swim in, great hike and Grutas Las Marias an adventur...  more »
  • Let it be said, this is not the Lanquin cave, far from it. It's just an underground river where one can swim and walk. A tour just for fun! It gives you at the entrance of the candles to oil or whatever since no wax flowing and they are tough (a little water not the scare not). The problem is that a few dozen people at the same time visit with so many candles who smoke black. So you're in a light fog throughout and especially all the cave became black, soot settling anywhere. A small waterfall in the middle that he shouldn't be afraid to (you can get around it). A scale is here to help you and ropes prevent you from dragging on the top. At the end a small jump, watch where you jump. In conclusion, if you're there and you have a little time to lose, it's one business like any other but is not an obligation. If you want to swim in a cave, cross the border of Belize and go to Actun Tunichil Muknal, it is much more expensive but you will return with other memories!
