The history of the cave is very interesting. This is not a beautiful cave, just average, hot and humid. The tour takes about 30 minutes and there are steps to climb.

This is a steamy place to be. The stairs and lighting are great. The caves are very lovely. One of the highlights were the iguaunas wandering outside.

The tour of the caves was nice. Our guide was experienced and somewhat knowledgeable, but the heat and humidity in the cave was almost unbearable. There are fans situated in various spots on the tour, but they only served to blow the sweat from your...More

It was really good. My wife and I enjoyed seeing the powerful waves coming in and out. Our driver Randolph took us there. He told me we would like it and he was so right.

There's a large parking lot and a small cafe area where you can get a snack and pay for your tickets. Tours went fairly often and lasted about 45 minutes. There is a long set of stairs to climb before entering the caves. We had...More

Did the visit as part of a larger group, the guide for the caves was informative and friendly. It seems they limit the number of people that can go in at a time which improves your experience. Overall they're very accessible and a good representation...More

Far to expensive. Just pay at the location itself. About $10-12. Enjoy. Definitely worth seeing

I completely understand, I can be claustrophobic at times as well. I really enjoyed the caves and didn't feel claustrophobic inside at all until they switched the lights off. I'm sure you could ask them not to, but I didn't... More

Stairs are a bit narrow but not too difficult to climb. When I went with my wife, the group that came with us had a bunch of elderly people and they were able to all make it. The cave tour takes about 25 minutes from what I... More
