“Stunning but what if...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

I jumped into the water at the more shallow, rocky end while others were jumping in at the 22 meter end. I did not see a single staff member there in case of emergency. Brave guys and girls were jumping off the huge rock that sits in the middle of the cavern and I had to close my eyes as each try to outdo each other. Unless the guy collecting pesos for the snorkel masks was a lifeguard in hiding, I was a bit concerned. Take the mothering instinct away and it was stunning....I would love to see what that cave looks like at night but I don't imagine that is an option. On my next trip, I will see if they do bat cave tours because I suspect that slippery substances on the lower stairs was bat guano!

“Swimming in a cave”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

This was a real experience, fresh water inside a cave. It can get really busy though as bus loads of torist come to swim.

“Did this on the jeep tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

This was a great experience. Think of a cenote in Mexico only this you can walk down to. It was clear and clean. You can jump in and even off of some of the rocks. Wear water shoes if you have sensitive feet. You should at least try it. Have fun.

“The Caves”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Very unique spot, great visit to see freshwater in a cave. Felt rushed a bit with the number of tourists arriving but was glad to see it. Equipment rental at $1 CUC was encouraged but no equipment is needed.
