I went on a tour and zip lining, the tour was ok, informative- I could have gone without it. Zip lining is a different story, that was awesome!! Our tour guides Kay and Sydney were great! I have been Zip lining over the Dominican Republic jungle and still liked the caves better, would definitely recommend it.

Well, it was definitely "touristy," but the tour was well done and it certainly lasted a long time. Interesting use of space and information--if I explained more, it would ruin the experience. The tour guide was just ok--he needed some public speaking experience and for heaven's sake, quit asking for tips! Teen son LOVED the ropes course/zip lines (extra charge)... More

What a majestic place to visit. The cave stays the same temp year round and feels cool enough to wear a jacket. The tour guides are knowledgeable and friendly, bring your kids too. They will find it fascinating!

We absolutely loved, loved, loved our Zipline tour today. Not only was it a fun and exhilarating thrill, I feel like our group hit the jackpot with our tour guides Gordon and Sydney (and no, I do not know them personally)! They were knowledgeable and capable but more importantly- hilarious and energetic! Thank you both for a great time. My... More

This was our first time zip lining and the guides, Gordon and Sydney, were a lot of fun! If you can, try to get into their group. The overall experience was great and we will definitely do this again.

This was a first for myself and family. It was an overall great experience, but our zip guides Chris and Sydney made it absolutely amazing! They were not only very professional, they demonstrated amazing patience and skill. They not only made the trip more enjoyable, they managed to help my wife complete the course even though she is deathly afraid... More
