We chose to make our own way here via local buses which was a trek! We almost got lost on our way there, walking from Campanet as there are no sign posting to the caves. There is a bus that goes to the caves at 1pm and 4pm. We chose these caves as an alternative to the Caves of Drach... More

We went here from Port de Pollenca on a rainy day. We only had to wait 10 minutes and it was beautiful inside. Quite good for younger children (6 and 8 with us) as it isn't too long.

Very well organised if rather expensive guided tour which lasts 40 minutes or so. Like eveywhere in the resort of Canyamel, most tourists are German therefore the guide spoke little English. Classical music played at significant moments to add effect!

Very interesting visit. Our guide was very knowledgable and spoke 4 languages to our mixed group. The children went in for free (6&4) otherwise 12 euros per adult well spent.

Well worth a visit. We drove there, 20 mins from Cala Rajada. It is also possible to get a boat trip from Cala Rajada which leaves at 10:30am and returns at 13:30. The caves are very cavernous with stalagmites which must be 10s or 100s of millions of years old. A tour costs EUR 13 and lasts about 40 mins.

Showcases can be an anticlimax, or touristy in the extreme this is neither and well worth the entry fee, have never felt quite so awed by a load of stalactites! The guided tour was interesting but then we also had freedom to wander towards end of the visit. Quieter than some sites of other caves in mallorca.

This is well worth a visit even although it is very busy - transport to and from via local bus services is excellent

This was the first cave I visited and I was quite impressed. I found the lighting to be beautiful and quite a technical feat when you consider that the cave is over 5 million years old. Our guide was multilingual (Spanish, English, French, German) and certainly knew his stuff. My wife doesn't like closed places, she's a bit claustrophobic, but... More
