  • The entire family enjoyed the hike into, through and around the grounds. Our tour guide was patient with the kids and elderly as well as knowledgeable. And of course, the views and photo-ops were great. It was just as fun to make the short trek as it was to see the "window".
  • Unique experience. Very educational and the staff give the tour in Spanish or English. Get ready to get a little dirty but it's worth it. My kids loved it
  • The main attraction is a beautiful view. Other than that, just a normal Caribbean Forrest. I think is a too long of a trip and sometime kind of boring. Much better when I went and was just a walk in the woods until you get to the cave a see the view. Now is too much talking.
  • Fun 10 min hike to the window. You get to see bats in the cave. There is a guide that takes you through. The view is beautiful.
  • The tour guide was funny and helpful. He told us a little about the history of the cave, the animals and insects that lives there etc. I had a great experience. Even tho it was raining.
