Our guide was simply the best guide we have ever come across. he spoke 6 languages and had four different nationalities in our group and conversed with each of them flawlessly. The tour is relatively short but very educational. I would recommend it to anyone that has the time. Very close to the airport.

Caves were small but the tour was informative and well done. Nice formations and opportunity to see bats! The caves were worth seeing.

Unusually hot and humid caves, must be able to climb approx 50 steps up cliff face to entrance. Photography in only one chamber to protect fruit bats. Worth the visit. Snack bar and rest rooms.

Caves are caves, but I loved the history here, with slaves using these as hideouts. The tour was good, as it was a small group, but if you go when cruise ships are in port during tours, you may be in a large group. If you are flexible, call ahead to check on their schedule. There are 46 steps up... More

I wasn't expecting to find caves in the island but they are! Interesting to hear about the island history and the bath preservation.

Very friendly guide! The caves have some interesting details and the guide will do his best to keep you entretained and teach you some of the caves history. On the other hand, the indian trail walk is a bit plain. The most interesting part of that walk was a huge iguana resting on a rock that allowed a couple photos.

Not only is this a cave but you can also climb all the way through the caverns to overlook the island for miles and miles. It was the most fascinating views of the sea and the sand I had ever seen. Be prepared to do a little climbing if you tour these caves. I recommend shoes that strap to you... More
