Left completely on our own to explore.A bit uneven underfoot. Take good shoes. Worth it to get out of the resort.

This is a neat little cave that you get to explore - there are bats all over the place - be sure to wear a hat!

I was afraid of bats prior to visiting this cave. They were flying around us while we looked at the Aztec drawings on the cave walls. It was worth the 5 pesos as we had some great laughs and were intrigued but the experience.

We stop at this cave on our way back to our resort from the Varadero Double Decker bus. It cost 5 CUC and the tour guy walks you through and explains things about the cave.
