Enjoy the walk to the caves! ; )

We went up on a rainy day, and had a bit of a struggle with the mud, but the flowers growing up the slope are beautiful. As for the cave, you can expect a 1-hour tour with a guide... read more

we visited as part of our tour of Vinales. Worth seeing, although a cave is a cave! Guys posing as the original Indians outside, so a bit touristy, but so what. Usual opportunity to drink Rum!

Was okay and cave is nice to look around. Was very crowded and we decided to leave before we got to the boat ride. Very narrow close spaces especially with the crowds. If you're claustrophobic you wouldn't like it. Had a nice lunch nearby before the short walk over. Was part of a full day trip we took from our... More

We went up on a rainy day, and had a bit of a struggle with the mud, but the flowers growing up the slope are beautiful. As for the cave, you can expect a 1-hour tour with a guide (Spanish only). Not much to say on that part... (10 CUC per person)

We visited caves as an additional attraction to our horse riding tour. It was "ok" kind of attraction. It's fun to visit it but if you won't make it.... there is nothing to regret.

We went to this cave during our horseback ride through the Vinales valley. I don't know if it's reachable by car, but I don't think so. There were not very many people inside the cave, which costs around 2 Cucs per person. At the end, there is a water hole for swimming. To swim, you have to be willing to... More

Great walk through the limestone caves, similar to Halong Bay if you have been to Vietnam. Be ready for the long queues for the boat ride at the end which is also the way out.

Hike up is quite steep and slippery, inside caves no hand rails and very dark as you only have a low powered head torch

this was included in a horse back tour that we did. It was an unique experience. You do go through some very tight spaces so I wouldn't do it if you are clausterphopic.
