Fabulous sight to visit. Largest caves we have seen to date with fascinating, beautiful natural formations. A short walk into the caves is through a beautiful rain forest. There is a small entry fee which is well worth paying. A must to visit

So its a big cave and pretty rainforest at front. Good enough for a quick pit stop if you are scootering around the island for 5 minutes.

Visit to caves was an interesting walk from the bus in the light rain. Our guide was knowledgeable and shared the local story of who visited the caves and why

This was a stop on our tour. Was good to see and was an interesting walk, the coins in the river where quaint. Nothing really there except an interesting land formation

My three children and I spent the day on the Isle of Pines as a part of our cruise. We decided to ride a tender boat to the island without booking a shore tour and have a look on our own. Much to our surprise...More

Quiet location with interesting cave formation, and good for 30mins-1 hours wandering around and photo opportunities. Kiosk sells lovely bracelets and wraps.
