  • It's a nice place to go on a rainy day or to cool off on a hot summer day. The cave is quite long and well lit with a new LED system. A lot of different chambers, all very beautiful to see and a nice ...  more »

  • Cool place. Don't go it you don't like close in spaces
  • Very good and interesting and impressive, but would have been better with some English information
  • The best
  • Very nice place and suggestive, I visit it all the years when I switch to Abiola and, during the summer, the shows that organize inside are very interesting and very beautiful artistically. During spring there is risk of encountering students while summer people (but not too much). The visit more beautiful I made it to March where it was just me, my wife and another relative with the Guide ... Overall is very well organized and the guides are very prepared!

  • Nothing to brag about. Few concretions, plenty of rock and an especially obnoxious lighting to more colors that made Zoot the cave itself. The boat ride is short and we see little.
