The cave itself is bigger than ee had expected and there is a lot of information on display about the natural processes that formed it and the mega fauna that once roamed these parts.

The only slight surprise was that the onsite little shop/cafe actually only has a few Milodon themed souvenirs.

REMEMBER to enter the cave you need to have purchased a separate national park entry permit for the cave. This is separate to the Torres del Paine Park entry. The permit can be purchased online.

Massive rip off. Literally 10 dollars for absolutely nothing. There is nothing in that silly cave and you are done in 10 minutes. It's a major scam. Don't do it. It's not even pretty

Interesting site with an informational trail about the life of a mylodon leading you to a big cave. The entrance fee is a bit steep..so OK skipping if you are tired, short on time, or have seen caves before.

As far as caves go there is not much to see. I think it’s has importance as an archaeological site but our guides skills in speaking English were limited so we did not get to know this aspect at all.

OK, but not really a "must". Main cave is a short walk from parking area. Entrance fee is around CLP 8000, and it's cards only - no cash accepted. The combination of poor internet conection and my UK credit card meant the transaction wouldn't go through, so the exasperated people on the ticket desk just said to go in - it's free. Word of warning there about using non-chilean credit cards. Sometimes they work, other times they don't, so never put yourself in a situation where you have to rely on them. Have cash too. The cave was OK, the viewpoint on the hill above the cave was worth the walk. I didn't get chance to explore the smaller caves - they're a bit of a trek.

I had a great experience at the cave, but I would really suggest taking a guide. There is so much to learn about this amazing place that having someone knowledgeable really made the experience more enjoyable. I booked my tour with Tomas from X-plore Patagonia and highly recommend you do the same. He was genuinely excited to share his knowledge of the cave and all of the animals found in the area. You will love Milodon cave and Tomas!

Buy your ticket before you go!!!! The staff there are beyond incompetent, lazy, who all need to wear helmets (welcome to Chile). We had one hour at the cave, 35 minutes checking in to register, re-register, connect to wifi, download forms, document and ID exchanges, bank transfers for payment because cash is useless, etc. all for a giant hole in the rock... We like caves, so we found it of interest. The giant main cave and the medium cave were awesome, skip the small one. Not worth it.

Located at a short driving distance from Puerto Natales, it is a natural monument with caves. It is situated along the flanks of Cerro Benitez. It comprises several caves and a rock formation called Silla del Diablo (Devil's Chair). The monument includes a cave which is notable for the discovery in 1895 of skin, bones and other parts of a giant ground sloth called Mylodon darwini, making it extremely unique. It is also part of the End of the World Route, a scenic touristic route. Certainly would very highly recommend visiting Cueva Del Milodon to any tourist in Puerto Natales or Punta Arenas.
