I wasn´t so excited about the cave but we went anyway. There are a few a little bit difficult places but if you are normally fit it all good, for the price (300-350 pesos per each, don´t remember anymore) you get two guides who help you. It´s going to take about 1.5 hours from end and back but we turned... More

Much better than a lot of FAMOUS caves in the world! This one is just natural, no food path inside and drink water available just from the white rocks inside the cave! It was an adventurous and surprising experience, take a note Don't bring Big bags or important things that could get wet, don’t bring a normal camera or mobile... More

My brods and sis were hesitant at first. Afraid what would happen inside a dark, stoney, a little bit slippery cave from the entrance. But once you get inside with the aide of the tourist accredited guide, you will experience the excitement, the beauty of different rock formations, the freshness of the waters dripping from the stones and overall the...

It's a nice climb up and down, some nice white rocks, stalogmites, etc. Everything a cave needs to have. But it's a mediocre cave, many better ones in the philippines. Very friendly staff though!

They had awesome formations inside, I loved it. I went there twice, once I went there, there were no other travellers and I didn't want to pay the fee (500 Peso) all by myself, so returned (but the travel to the cave, climbing the mountains by motorcycle, was quite awesome as well), The second time, I was with others and...

My family really enjoyed this. Two adults 50+ and two boys 10 and 14. Lots of stooped walking and a bit of climbing here and there, but no claustrophobia. Really nice formations and the local guides are super patient. Highly recommend this. I think the scariest part is going through the entrance, so if you can make it that far,... More

The cave was a highlight of our trip. You must go into the town, rent helments, head lights, and tour guides. You can "lock" up your valuables but didn't seem too secure. It's 1.5hr in the cave. There's only a few places where you need to squat and walk. (Mostly at the beginning) Other places you're wading in waist deep... More

Be prepared to get wet. The entrance is pretty small, but it`s getting better. There are some restrictions, but big enough to get easely through. The guides are very helpfull!

This was an awesome experience! The cave is difficult to navigate at some parts, but the guides are very helpful. It's beautiful and I highly recommend it.
