English/Deutsch/Castellano The caves of Jumandy are located about an 1hr/bus or 20mins/Taxi ($6) outside of Tena. Entry is $3 for the 1hour tour and $1 for boots. Be aware you will get wet! The caves are filled with water and at some point you might have to swim. Your tour guide will explain it however and provide you with headtorches.... More

I came here with some friends, and we had a lot of fun! There were some cool formations, and the guide was nice and knowledgable. You will get wet though, so prepare for that! Really cool swimming at the end near a waterfall. For the price it was a really great experience!

The caves are interesting, and the guide is knowledgeable. You get a chance to go under a "healing" waterfall, touch a fertility rock, and see some bats. The view climbing out is also breathtaking. Expect to get VERY WET! The complex and pools surrounding the caves have a cheap, tourist feel to them, but the caverns themselves are still fun.... More

I went to Cavernas many years ago when everything was natural and gorgeous, now the pool complex it's naaasty and dirty, the attention is so rude and they charge you for everything. The place it's completely destroyed, such a poor managing. I do not recommend this place there's way better places around there.

If you have seen a few caves before with pristine formations then this one will be a let down. Because there were only two of us we had to pay the entire $15 tour fee. That was not worth it. It has a big ugly water pipe running through it and most of the stalicmites are damaged.

First and foremost for the 5$ it cost to take the tour it is a great price! The caves are fun with some interesting creatures inside, has a cool part you can swim/use a rope to cross where the water gets deeper. It has a waterfall where you can sit under and holes you can dunk yourself in as well... More

To get there, you should take a taxi (7$ for the ride) because it's a little bit out of town. The site itself is not well maintained (the slides, the pool, etc) and you have to pay 2 or 3$ just to enter. You need to Bring a swim suit for the cave though! If you don't have watershoes, you... More

I went to this cave many years ago when there was still mud in it and that was one of the main reasons i was looking forward to go. Now because of bad management the cave lost its mud and now frankly it was like any other cave..although now a more conservationist approach have been put into guides to try... More

I liked the cave. it is very beautiful. The guide was helpful. You will get wet, so you must have others clothes. But it is not allowed to take pictures inside the cave which is was very disappointing. And, I have my protect case with me.

Nice staff,low budget entrance $2 and $3 for guide services. The tour is short, almost 1 hour. The story of Jumandi is very interisting.
