We went a little later on in the day (4pm) so it was less crowded but still just as nice. There are no tour guides and nowhere to... More

I enjoyed the visit to this cave and to be able to swim (snorkel) while I was there. I went as part of a full day tour. The cave visit itself does not really take that much time. Not sure if there is any cost if you just show up o your own. On its own, it is not a... More

Kids enjoyed but it was a bit crowded and hurried. Would have liked it to be a little less busy and rushed.

Really interesting to see how the cave develops and the vegetation growing out... More

You cannot just go to Cuba without visiting this cave you can actually say you swam in... Do it! You only live once, breath taking scenery.

swimming in this cave was one the most awsome outing I have ever done.Unfortunately there was over 100 steps back up. Not for someone who cannot do stairs and it was hard getting into the water.
