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

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.

don't let the official tour guide badge fool you, this is a country specializing in knock-offs . The cave itself is pretty cool, but there is no easy, or safe way in or out.

This was my first bat cave experience, so I'm unjaded in saying that it was an awesome one. The trek through the jungle is ok, but the cave itself is steep, slippery when wet, and fairly dangerous on the best of days. So naturally my girlfriend and I were interested in doing it. There's a pool at the bottom of... More

This was really cool, but quiet dangerous - you should have proper hiking shoes on to go deep into the cave. It is incredibly hot and smells like, well, poop. There is bat poop everywhere, be prepared to get VERY DIRTY. It was a very neat adventure, but I dont think I would do it again. The Crystal Cave (next... More
