Local guides were friendly and the cave was pretty cool but some of the headlamps we used were dim and this took away from the enjoyment.

Aspects of the caves were nice but overall is wasn't really worth it. The guide didn't have English so forget being informed of the geology or any other facts you may wish to learn.

I was alone when I did this tour, so it was just me with two teenage girls as my tour guides, who ventured into the cave. It was an exciting experience. The cave had lots of interesting spots, it was a sight to see! Getting around the cave was a lot harder that I expected, but my guides helped me... More

It is a nice and interesting walk, but they do not tell you how to be prepared. The water will get you around the waist, so it's best to do your visit with swimsuit. Additionally, you go through very small and slippery places, so your camera may be in danger. But yes, it is a very nice place if you're... More

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!
