What a great experience. The clearest and cleanest water I have ever swam in. A little cool but not as cold as we were told. The steps down into the cave to the bottom could use a little work but there are railings which help. Once at the bottom the natural pool is amazing. very hard to tell the depth... More

Was an amazing experience. Being claustrophobic, i had a bit of anticipation to go down deep in the cave, but it is fantastice, and at the bottom you are rewarded by being able to swim in the grotto and u still see the sky, so it very fun even for a claustrophic lady!!!!!

It was a great experience! I jumped in expecting it to be really cold but it wasn't bad....very refreshing. Jump in! You will be glad you did. The water is crystal clear and there is quite a large area to swim in and around the rock formations.

Great opportunity to swim in an underground cavern in fresh water and stalactites. Close to Varadero.

this was a great little cave. nice fresh water & cold. it was neat to be able to see the bottom(66ft at deepest point) from the surface. I found it quite refreshing after the snorkeling I did in the ocean.

make sure to bring your waterproof camera for this excursion. There are other rooms to discover here. The water was lovely. There was no one there to really tell you how the caves were formed etc but it was beautiful. A must see.

I've always wanted to swim in a cave and this didn't disappoint. While small in size, the water was deep, clear and cool. Despite the darkness, we could see quite well with snorkel and mask. Another check off the bucket list!

Beautiful fresh clear water cake. My second time visiting Saturno. Still amazing even on the 2nd visit. You descend into the cave via a very long winding staircase into a very large spacious cave supplied with fresh spring water. The water is so clear and fresh. You will be invited to swim in the water, climb on the rock formations... More
