“neat caves”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

so cool to see bats in their natural habitat. And the host Jose was real nice & friendly and toured me around . showing me the cave drawings and bats and talking about the trees etc it cost 5 CUC and I gave him a couple for tip and I cleaned his wound he had got from stepping on a nail from the construction debris left laying around on the road, hope that road is finished soon. was very interesting, something I had never seen before

“Very interesting place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Visited here last year while on vacation to Cuba.
Beautiful caves and a very informative/helpful guide.
Definitely worth the stop if you have an extra hour or so.

“Great caves, Great guide, and interesting history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I thought the price was reasonable for what we saw, the caves were interesting to see even if you're not interested in the history and the links with the mayan calendar. The bats were very cute/small and were flying around everywhere, some sleeping and huddled up together. It was interesting to learn the importance of bats in cuba and what they do.
Also you can enter the cave without a guide so it feels like you are discovering something yourself, which in my opinion is even better, you can take your time for pictures and just taking everything in!
All round a great trip!

“Nice guide, but don't expect to mutch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Because of the guide we really enjoyed to see this cave. No other tourists were there so we really got the full attention and explanation. You can see some fruitbugs and old carvings (we aren't really sure if they are real or just drawn). It's a nice trip when you are staying over in Varadero. (costs to enter are 5 CUC and the Hop on hop off bus tour from varadero stops at this cave)

“Cool side trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Interesting 15-20 minutes activity. If you have the day pass for the bus it's worth a stop if you into these kind of things.
