The caverns will leave you in awe. The formations are by turns soaring and finely detailed, resembling everything from theaters to animals to massive pillars and church organs. I rented the audio guide, which was well done - informative and entertaining. Unfortunately the special tours were all booked when I got there, so i's good to reserve a place ahead of time. But 90 percent of it can be seen on the self-guided tour. The above-ground cafeteria offers healthy, reasonably priced dishes.
