He then gives you alone time to explore it yourself. It will probably take you about 30 min from start to finish if you explore... More

The hut outside the cave entrance was unmanned but I just walked into the cave anyway. I entered alone with just my iphone torch so found it to be a creepy experience, could hear bats all around me and it was darker then I'd expected. Was relieved to find other people and the guide inside so paid him the entrance... More

We stopped in here from the bus and for like 5 bucks you get a wicked tour. The guide in the bruins hat was awesome and obviously loved his job. Its creepy in these caves and you will have bats flying around you. really cool cave drawings, a stop to remember.

Visited this cave with a guide and besides the many bats in it we found it very interesting with many old drawings on the caves stones. Highly recommended!

Small cave with interesting cave wall art. Very good guide, helpful and informative. Some fruit bats are present but will not harm people! Thanks

The trail needs more signage. You do get a little map but it need to have direction on it. Very quiet and lots of lizards in the bush.

We were not told of them and... More

I mistakingly reviewed Saturno caves but meant Ambrosia Caves. Not far out of town heading towards the 5 stars, you will see the entrance on the side of the road. Not big caves, very minimal walking but it has ancient drawings and alot of tiny bats. $5 CUC to ride the bus to get there and 5 CUC to tour... More
