Cuevas dels Hams, Porto Cristo

1.7
#2 of 11 in Things to do in Porto Cristo
On a guided tour of the subterranean caves of Cuevas dels Hams, discovered in 1905, admire an impressive array of stalagmites, stalactites, and underwater lakes. Artistic lighting adds to the mysterious atmosphere of this underground world. Look for the fish hook–shaped formations to which the caves owe their name, as "hams" means "hooks" in Spanish. Your tour ends at the biggest of all the lakes, where you listen to classical music played from an animatronic gondola. After all, this lake is called the "Sea of Venice."

  • We fell on it and thought to visit the caves of Drach, but it were the Cuevas dels hams. What is in itself Yes not bad, ultimately it is also a beautiful cave. However, there were many technology in addition to the like movies, strange musical show boat on the Lake, what hold just a matter of taste, a very different aspect that bothered us: fences are installed everywhere, so we have seen that in any other cave. So much sense should have everyone that you don't touch anything (although if I really think about it, I wonder again about the people, that pretty good shooting with Flash, but also about the Guide, which is perfectly acceptable). The charm is suffering immensely through these fences. By the fact that it has even the overpriced price from €21 p.p (certainly primarily serves to pay the electricity bill, the others have staff and maintenance costs), the sympathy is gone somehow play the flute and it really gets the Impression of a "Tourifalle", because it's about money and not about the cave. Anyway, that was our impression. What do I need in addition to the film an electronic language guide English if the presentation in full volume in Spanish... you could solve different and much less expensive. And what a professional image? What had bit of amusement park. And costs the operator money and thus the visitor. The tripartite review give I intended for this purpose that the cave is nevertheless beautiful, if it hides everything else.

  • Even though it is expensive and small nature gives us a marvel inside this cave that few places in the world can be seen. A pair of films you spend to make the visit longer since they are really small. If you have the money and it's an ugly day leverages these caves to keep you on the couch watching TV.
