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

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.

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!
