  • Amazing, You will definitely have an amazing experience in this cave. You and your light will have more than 2 hours of walking around this cave to discover all the shapes it has on the rocks. Don't forget to bring water and closed shoes and a great camera to take your photos and see how the cave still has some gold in the rocks. Whoops, it seems the Spanish forgot to check there. Enjoy!
  • It's awsome! No lighting just your own spotlight, sometimes really tight so you have to crawl on all four or even slide on your belly. It's a real experience of caving!
  • A neat cave to explore if you are visiting the area and have time. It is reasonably priced, and has some interesting features. The map on the outside is a little worn, so be sure to pay attention to the numbers in order to find your way out.
  • Es un bonito lugar pero toma en cuenta que no hay luz adentro. Si sufres de claustrofobia considera entrar. Mejor paga un guía que te acompañe. Full dark inside. Have to rent or bring lights. Lights are off since where affecting / drying water that runs on the cave formations. Get a guide to be able to move inside.
  • A location very near to Santa Elena and Flores Island, some caves with much spread and much to do. There are many formations that simulate creatures and things, with a little imagination are seen. The downside of this place is that there is a visitor center, one enters the hand of God, without guides, and although there is signage inside, one can lose. I recommend not following corridors away from the marked or separated from the group. Same is an incredible place.
