A wonderful place but they are missing a trick! There is a lot to take in here and so much to know and understand but there are no tour guides at all. No audio guides too so you literally stroll around yourselves in no particular order. I found this to be an interesting place with lots to see but boy... More

This is a series of Volcanic tunnels transformed into a beautiful natural feature by Cesar Manrique. It costs about £7 to get in. There are beautiful gardens, a restaurant built partly into a cave, an underground 600 seat theatre, a small underground lake with albino crabs and a museum. It really is stunning.

Love the cave with the white crabs (very small). Also love the whole area with the pool. Nice place to spend an hour or two. Be aware lots of stairs to go down and back up.

Cesar Manrique left his indelible mark on this spot. Not easily traversed however if you have mobility problems. The attraction offers many lovely photo opportunities and the little albino crabs, apparently unique in the world have a permanent home in the pools deep in the caverns. Make sure you visit the concert hall, often missed by tourist groups playing sheep... More

Lava tunnel designed by Manrique (local personality: architect and artist). The inside lake is the "home" of the blind crabs - at least for them and it is worth the visit. There is also an outdoor area and a restaurant, so you can plan around 2 hours for a slow motion visit here. Plus, in the tunnel, it is chill,... More

Restaurant and lake full of blind crabs and a large auditorium contained in an old lava tube ,unfortunately there was no concert being given in the afternoon but I expect the acoustics are excellent

Another Manrique ‘must see’ attraction (buy a combined attraction ticket for more cost effective visits) and very conveniently located for the neighbouring Cuevas del Verde. Arriving at lunch time and, fortunately for us, between coach parties, we descended to the restaurant area first before any rush took over. The setting is impressive but the food and service weren’t. As polite... More

Jameos Del Aqua is ancient volcanic tunnel arranged and adapted by César Manrique, an architect and artist born and burried on Lanzarotte Island. He used to live in the U.S. for few years where he gained great appreciation and estimation but he returned home and was devoted and engaged in fight for retaining Nature on his beloved Island.

Very good - I visited this attraction and was not disappointed - this is not for disabled people as they can part view this from the top, but is not accessible to the cave below, where the white albino, blind crabs inhabit the deep natural poos in the volcanic tunnel. A lot of steps to go up and down and... More
