The Cantabon Cave was one of my highlights in Siquijor. Absolutely stunning - you walk through a river inside the mountain and will see stone formations you most likely have never imagined they even existed. Bring flip-flops or water shoes and be ready to get wet about up to your hips (swim shorts ideal). The guides are all local and... More

You will pay php500 plus an admission free for two local guides and a set of headlight and helmet Pros: Unique, quiet Cons: Narrow passage ways, low head room, tedious treking

Wow what an experience. Don't go if you are claustrophobic. Really beautiful inside but ware waterproof shoes and something you don't mind getting wet and dirty. Glad I did it but wouldn't want to do it again.

Whaouuuu !!!! It was our first speleology experience, and it was a pleasure ! A little afraid at the beginning when we saw the entrance of the cave, but it disapeared rapidly during ride. Great moment !

Cracking cave system but be aware that you may be waist deep in water an humidity is very high (in March). I would reccomend buying some cheap thongs rather than bugger up your Birkenstocks. Also think about your camera/phone. Well worth doing though. Cost was 590 pesos for two of us including all fees and two guides As you walk... More

This is the 3th best place in the world that I have been! It is sooo amazing! It is like you are in an action movie or something. So authentic and you really paddle through the cave. Highly recommend! Better that underground river!

We went along to this without really realising what we were getting into. Be warned, you will have to wade through water! My camera was destroyed in this cave. Apart from that I think I enjoyed the experience. The guides do not know anything about the history or formation of the cave and I thought it was a bit expensive.... More

It's beautiful although it's a little expensive for what it is. It's a little physical and there's no security amenities. I do not recommend it with kids.

This is a really nice thing to do if you are ok with walking and crawling inside caves! There is a lot of water in the cave (it is so clean you can drink it), so bring clothes that can get wet and dirty (since you need to crawl at points). Also bring shoes that can get wet and which... More
