  • We could not go in as they don't let fewer than 6 people in at a time. It might be fabulous, but we will never know. We hung around and watched the pictures on their screens, but left after 30 minutes when no one else arrived.
  • This cave has an impressive collection of original Maya artifacts still in the cave. There are lots of bats living in this cave, which is fun to see. We had a wonderful tour guide, who was happy to tour us in Spanish (for our practice) and help us understand concepts.
