  • Ricky was our tour guide and he was absolutely amazing. My mom was initially having some trouble with the steps and terrain in general. He literally took her by the hand and led her the whole way. He was very patient and made her feel comfortable. Ricky shared some interesting details along the way about the rock formations and the bats. The views of the mountains were beautiful. The experience itself was lovely, and Ricky made it even more pleasant.
  • Truly a beautiful experience. It’s $19 per person but if you go online and pay online I paid $33 for two people which was equal to $16.50 per person. Worth the money. You visit two caves and the tour guide we had was extremely knowledgeable. Reserve online to ensure there is availability during the time you want to go especially if visiting during pandemic (covid). Glori (our tour guide) was GREAT! She was extremely knowledgeable, answered all questions, showed us things along the trail not only in the cave and was extremely friendly. Wear good footwear (No open toe) because there is a lot of walking, exposed roots and rocks along the way. They are supposed to be opening a new route to another cave or two in the area in the summer. (Hopefully still on track) I would love to come back and explore some more. We got to see some fruit bats. Great experience with a lot of information.
  • The experience was great! It was very educational in terms of the island’s ecosystem. The guide was very knowledgeable and answered questions without hesitation. I totally recommend!
  • Ernesto the biologist and tour guide was amazing! We saw two beautiful caves as well as Taino carvings. My family and I were truly amazed. Definitely recommend!
  • Ricky, our tour guide was amazing! Beautiful views and relatively easy hike. Wear closed toe shoes!
