    travel for two hours to learn about these caves to my arrival is informed me that if not more people they should not we could get...

After waiting for an hour and see that nobody was kept saying the same thing... the option it was pay equivalent to 4 or three and give a tip $$ the person who accompanied us. at the end we could get. the cavern is spectacular. but persons responsible who only are talking sitting and using your cell phone much invalidate the place.
