This cave was a 15 minute walk from our Hotel. It was much more spectacular than I expected.

It was ok...saw bats in real life and they don't care for people so no biting.. It was an interesting stop for our shopping trip into town. Used the double decker bus and enjoyed the scenery.

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.
