“Awesome!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

I love to explore, so this was awesome to me! Could have done without all the bats, but ya gotta take the good with the bad right?!!
They charged 5 pecos for the flashlight use, and thats all they charged, so it was cheap!
If you like to explore, this is a neat spot to visit!

“Nice adventure for the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Took a little tour through the cave. It was awesome to see. There are fruit bats flying around an on the ceiling. They wont bother you though. It was $5pp to enter. You can see the original drawings from the indiginous ppl that used this place for prayer an rituals..

“Bats included!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Very enthusiastic tour of the cave, and much bigger than we expected. We were given a tour then a torch to go off and explore on our own. Definitely worth 5 CUC

“Natural beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

The Cueva Ambrosio was a highlight of our trip. Our kids loved the bats flying around them, just that tiny bit scary without ever being threatening. They loved exploring on our own with a light they could hold. The vines and roots penetrating the cave ceiling, down to the cave floor, in the reflected light of sun coming in through their hole, made for some of the most beautiful and dramatic pictures of our vacation. The staff are very nice.
