The entrance to this cave is at the side of the road (Autopista Sur) very close to the Royal Hicacos hotel. We stayed at that hotel and walked there in 10 minutes. It cost $5 pp and we stayed in the cave for about 45min with our guide. The cave has several native pictographs and is full of bats. It... More

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.

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!
