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!

It's not spoiled by too much paths and updates, so it has just the bare needed assists to get through. There are some quite deep pools. The formations are very very good, and i tell you that you must do this cave.

We arrived at the barangay hall at 6:15am. I had to be early because I needed to catch a ferry at 11am. It was open but no one was "officially" working yet as they said they actually start at 8am. But the lady who lives near the barangay hall was very accommodating and apologetic. She was quick to find me... More

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
