Great to see, but make sure you have had a Pee before you arrive as no facilities on arrival. You have to book a time, don't just arrive!

Easy to get to by car, or a stiff walk uphill from Benojuan station. Bat-lovers will enjoy the cave!

These caves are just about a 25 minute taxi ride from Ronda. Don't expect to show up and go right in. Because this is a privately family owned cave they only do a certain number of tours a day. So, they will wait to start...More

I am calling the phone number to make a reservation and getting a recording that is only in Spanish. Has someone here called to reserve with any success? Can anyone tell me what the recording says?

You are probably calling out of their operating hours. On their website it says 10:00-12:30 and 16:00-17:00. Good luck!
We visited this site and had to accept group with Spanish guide - we understood almost nothing but loved the caves. His might we have got English speaking guide? We were travelling on our own not part of tour group.
