Nie way to spend 2-3 hours. The tour itself is about an hour (we opted for the Tram Tour) there is also a more personalized tour where you can explore by foot. Reasonablly priiced, nice history lesson, knowledsgeable guide, and beautiful plants in the "gully" just outside the entrance to the caves. Not a typical Caribbean thing to do. Taking... More

Very unique cave. It's so large that you need a tram to get around. It ends up 170 feet underground and is great to see the natural stalactites and formations and crystal clear running water. My kids loved it as well so a great family excursion. Tip- we took an island tour and asked our guide to see a bunch... More

I've been on cave tours in a number of places around the world, and this is probably the best, ever. Everything about the trip is top notch. Glass sided elevator down the cliff of the gully. Well done modern Visitor's Center. Tastefully done souvenir shops. The caves themselve are phenominal -- flow stone, classic stalctities and stalagmites, underground rivers and... More

I understand some reviewers' reserves about the fact that this attraction was created whilst destroying what Nature created. However, it's done and there and I think it is well worth visiting. I would especially recommend it for children and for people who are unable to walk through other similar caves in the world. The guide was very knowledgeable and helpful... More

Everything about this attraction was marvelous. Taken the elevator down to the gardens below begins the beautiful journey to this gem. Everything was immaculate and the electric tram ride through the caverns was nothing short of amazing. Tour personnel provided a lot of information about the cave and pictures are allowed and encouraged.

We went on the tram tour and our tour operator was a bit less than enthusiastic to be leading us through. I've been on several other cave tours in the U.S. and Central America and I like walking through much more (which they do offer, but we didn't have time to do it). They left us in the self guided...
