What a place, fantastic is all I can say. The cavern is amazing, though dangerous if you have small kids as there's no handrail or wall between the pathway and the lagoon. The crabs look biggish in photos but in reality you struggle to see them ( they are that small !). The Auditorium is unbelievable, I can see why... More

There's really not a lot to say about this 'attraction': you pay 9 EUR per person to walk down some steps through a restaurant-area, a small cave with miniscule white crabs, more steps and restaurant-areas, followed by some kind of weird swimmingpool-like structure that totally seems out of place. The journey ends at yet another restaurant-area and of course a... More

I was advised by the bus tour rep not to try this "attraction" as the steps and paths are very steep and narrow ! Instead I had a "personal" tour of my own by the staff ! My wife did take the chance and confirmed that the rep had not exaggerated ! The "caves" ,they are in fact lava tubes... More

We paid 18 Euro (2 adults) This was the experience; you enter down steep winding steps into a cafe area, more steps which lead down through the cafe to a cave. Next you walk through the cave with tiny white crabs to the next cafe area. Up more steps to a swimming pool - which is beautiful around that to... More

We had visited here before but this time we went late Saturday afternoon. We enjoyed a coffee as we watched the light change in the cave then we sat in the gardens as dusk fell. It was magical to watch the lights come on one by one and then see the pink streaked sky and the first stars. Saturday is... More

We paid €9 each for 2 adults and 2 children over 12. Worth it to see how beautiful it is but a short trip. They have a beautiful pool but you can not get in it which seems a little tease. Restaurant was not open which also is a shame so apart from a 15 min walk and a look... More

This is an interesting environment - part natural and part Manrique design. There are some eye-catching parts, including the pool with the albino crabs (tiny!). What you must watch out for is that it would be very easy to get from the start to the exit and miss more than half of it - there are few signs to take... More

First time we've been here & wasn't disappointed. It was 9 euros entrance fee & had a lovely restaurant with bar for snacks & dinners. Fabulous setting in a lava tube tunnel with a small lake in the bottom which has small white albino blind crabs that are unique. Go & see them, they are quite unusual & cute! Carry... More
