    Venado Caves
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    The amazing Venado Caves, formed 15 – 20 million years ago, were discovered by the aboriginal Guatosos. Throughout the 1 ½ hour tour through formations formed by an underground river, we will see stalactites, stalagmites, and marine fossils along with plenty of bats, spiders, and crickets. As adventurers, we should be prepared to move through very tight spaces, get thoroughly wet, and be covered in mud as we walk and crawl along the underground river and through the waterfall to explore the wonders of this cave.

This is a little-know gem that everyone should be visiting more! I was the only person on the tour and I was quite surprised. Bring along water shoes and a waterproof case for your phone. You can also rent these on arrival.\

Daniel was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the caves and various species it contained. There were lots of bats so it was a bit frightening to be at first. If you're claustrophobic, this may not be the adventure for you as there are lots of tiny spaces to crawl through.

The entire experience took about an hour and I learned a lot. After the tour, there is an area where you can shower and afterwards, they give you fresh fruit and water. I think this was an awesome deal and great value. I will make sure to do this tour again if I am ever back in the La Fortuna area.

Absolutely my favorite part of a week vacation to multiple amazing places.

Guide was hilarious, friendly, a wealth of knowledge, and very capable. The caves themselves are breathtaking and full of unique wildlife. I highly recommend this tour to any adrenaline seeker!

The caves and the guide were incredible. This review is for Seven Tours and their misleading "tour". You can go to the caves with your own transportation, and they provide the gear and the Guide for $28 pp. What Seven tours is actually providing is round trip transportation for an additional fee of nearly $200 depending on your location. When they discovered the location of my hotel, I was offered the chance to drive myself or pay additional fees. I opted to pay the fee not knowing what I know now. We had our own rental car, and I wouldn't have not booked this through the tour operator if they were upfront about it.

To make matters worse, they are supposed to pick you up in a van. We got picked up in a compact sedan. This made my family in the backseat car sick. The driver was very nice, slowed down and even pulled over when we asked. We also had to exit the vehicle twice during the trip because the fwd car couldn't make it through a muddy patch of road with all of us in the car. It just would not have been an issue had they actually used the van.

We did have a great experience in the caves, I just hate being taken advantage of a local provider trying to take advantage of tourists.
