“Not Recommended”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Would not recommend going to any caves at EL NIDO because its so small and it smells really bad. I went to one where i had to basically crawl in to a small hole to go in. (keep in mind mi six ft tall) and when i go in, it smells really relaly bad. Not recommended

“Interesting entry, but smells of bat droppings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

This is an interesting cave, since you must crawl through a small opening and tumble down to enter the first cave. Our tour guide had thoughtfully laid a life jacket to "cushion" our crawl.

This made for some fun.

The cave itself is unfortunately stuffy and (undesirably though expectedly ) smelled of guano - bat droppings! We hurried and ambled up the rocks to the next cave, which had some fresh air from a shaft in the rock.This is really a pair of caves more for wacky photos (people peering through a hole in the rock, ets )

Though it was interesting first time, I would not come here again.

You can read my frank and honest account of our El Nido trip (with dozens of photos) here - http://goo.gl/6HyXU

“Breath taking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

It is beautiful and unique. You will need a boat and an experienced guide to take you. Good place to take pictures. Visit in the afternoon . less people around
