  • The caverns are indeed beautiful and impressive. They’re worth a trip. It’s around 2.5 km of walking including two somewhat steep ascents on steps carved from rock. Our research told us to expect...

  • Coolest caves I've ever visited! The place is *massive*. Unfortunately they did not have English-speaking guides (which are mandatory). Would have been cool to have geological explanations for some of the crazy rock formations we saw. Note it is very humid in there so you will likely be hot. In January, shorts and t-shirts still had you sweating a bit. Street footwear was sufficient.
  • The tour guides are not by any means giving you an in depth scientific explanation. They mainly mention interestingly shaped structures but that's about it. With that being said, it's fascinating! Definitely worth the trip. I suggest you take public transit or the buses that leave from the "Costa line" bus terminal. $44 pesos per person on those buses, the public transit doesn't pass by too often. Don't be afraid to ask the locals for your best option in regards to getting there's majority of locals are very hospitable and honest!
