Had an awesome time at this place, its not a tourist trap at all but a full blown genuine bat cave that you need a guide with flashlights to climb down. When you get to the bottom theres a cool pool formation where the ocean is coming in. We saw 3 snakes in here too which was a good laugh.... More

We visited Boracay, Phillipines in October 2014. We paid for the transfer to Bat Caves however upon near arrival were informed the Bat Caves and Crystal Cave were both closed to the public. Very disappointing.

The trip is a dangerous one, as the tides could suddenly come up, and trap people inside. Plus being trapped means drowning also. And there were no bats to be found. My recommendation is to spend your money elsewhere.

I hate bats, so it is just my opinion. There are lots of those things out there. Go have fun, if you like.

Just to give the company a different challenge for the day. We came here to see the inner part but not so much to the dark part of the cave. enough light can illuminate the entrance for picture taking. Enjoyable, We had fun!!!

I don't know why Trip Advisor still has this spot on it's list, but the cave has been closed for a long time already. Long ago, tourists (mostly American then) came to the caves and killed alot of bats. Some shot them when they were flying out of the cave to feed. It's all closed now.. and sometimes you can... More

I didnt see lots of bats but the cave itself is worth going to. It's scary at first but gets exciting the moment you enter the cave.
