    Visit a bit expensive for the place (must pay the guide in addition to the entry) but the cave is nice, well built (light color) and 2 skylights at the end of the visit are splendid. Attention be well shod because it's slippery, with no visible holes (dimly lit ground).

    Despite the years and improvements is still a place that required some physical capacity, and the right clothes, because what is slippery areas and rustic steps and very small parts to climb yet is an excellent example of the underground formations that abound on the peninsula I have visited it since childhood and continues to amaze me wear repellent clothes comfortable footwear that drift in moisture without his snack why come out with hunger sed and Café drinks and potatoes are expensive. Good luck

    Good place for those who want something out of the beach pool or comfort. They are caves that more can be said; only advise carrying water, tennis or non-skid shoes to make travel safer. A little dangerous for very young children, but certainly a very nice experience. If you are in excursion takes you to other archaeological sites and it is good to take a repellent.

    Being a geology nerd, I loved this place! Be prepared for a 45min-1 hour walk in very humid conditions (it's cooler than outside at least). We were there during the "dry" season and the floor was still a little slippery in parts, so wear sturdy shoes. There is some lighting but still dark, the guide had a flashlight but you might benefit by bringing your own, too. The stalactites and stalagmites were amazing! Oh, and you'll be charged 3 times here (federal, State, and guide fees), I love Mexico and it's burocracies! :P

    I would definitely check these caves out, though beware that there is quite a bit of unstable ground and climbing! My kids loved it (12, 8, 5 yr olds)! We were able to hire an English speaking guide and I would highly recommend it. The Spanish speaking tour that went at the same time had 40 people in it, we only have 8 and I believe got to see more of the cave. The history of the cave is very interesting - it's a must if you are in the area!

    OK we did this from Merida and coming from Australia where we have some caves I wasn't impressed. You HAVE to pay for a guide and with a really long, inefficient and expensive journey to get there it's over in 90 minutes. Not recommended unless it's directly on your route. Don't expect lots of Mayan artifacts.

    Amazing undergroung cave system. The guide is entertaining and informative. Worth the trip.

    Anyone on the ruta Puuc should stop by these caves. The main chamber is really impressive with its 40+ meter high ceiling. The best thing about this place are the ancient cave paintings that are still easily visible. At the same time it's sad to see not much is done to preserve them. After coming home I found out that only decades ago there were many more paintings in the cave but most of them are gone now. Make sure to negotiate a price with your guide up front because their normal scheme of 'tipping' at the end of the tour seems like a way to guilt-trip you out of more money. Our guide was definitely nice but also kind of rushed us through the cave and acted somewhat disappointed when I told him what our 'tip' would be at the end of the tour. Whatever you end up paying, with a beautiful place like this, it's hard to imagine it not being worth the money.
