This is actually the second time we visited the caves the first time being in 2008 - we went again with guests who had never been and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

It was beautiful. The cave had beautiful lighting and we walked around the grounds for a little bit after the tour. For only $USD2.50 per person, I highly recommend it.

We were on a carnival cruise and instead of paying for their package, we hired a private driver for the day. We went to the cave and got a tour/history of the town, its people, and Haiti(its poor and destitute neighbor). The guided tour was well worth the cost. Tour company"Exclusive Tour", driver-Gabriel Coats.

You won't regret going. It's also accommodate to disabled people. I was afraid because I have back problem but they even had elevator if you can't walk.

Nice attraction in my beautiful country. It's just about a 30 minutes tour but you can learn a lot about history and see nice graphics down there. It's beautiful and the guides are well informed, too bad you're not allowed to take pictures inside the cave.

I enjoyed this cave. the guide was well informed and easy to understand. the formations in caves are very nice.the cave art was interesting-it does appear that some touch ups were done over the years.. A small museum and gift shop are on the premises. a nice time was had-also the iguana exhibit was nice.
