Refreshing sight

Small cave but tourists can swim in its cold and clean water. Stone formations are worthy of photos to show back home.

The P50 entrance fee, I thought, was fine until we heard a couple of tour guides mention something that explained why some parts of the cave smelled of urine... and it wasn't because of bats. I mean, they should put their collected fees to good use and preserve the cave's natural beauty and cleanliness, right?

I am always afraid to enter small areas like caves but I was indulged to get in because of the view. The water is crystal clear and cold. The guides are very funny and accommodating. We really enjoyed this trip and are always coming back to the cave.

A smallish cave with an underwater pool, you can swim in! It was definitely a surreal experience, since I first of all expected a cold cave temperature (it is a tropical cave, what was I thinking?) and then you have this amazing cave with stalagnites, holes in the "ceiling", which let through rays of sunlight and bats and then of...

Our friendly and humorous tour guide informed us that this underground cave was discovered accidentally by a farmer when he was clearing a tree that had fallen. The farmer lowered a ladder down the hole he found, hence, the name, Hinagdanan (meaning "fitted with a ladder"). Since then it had become a tourist attraction. At P165 for three people, this,...

I had no clue about this cave. It was when I hired a tricycle and asked the guy what is an offbeat place to visit in Bohol. I was pleasantly surprised to see this cave where freshwater and seawater met. There was no crowd. Only few high school kids were out having a swim. In the sweltering heat of Bohol... More

It was an interesteing sight to see especially when you know how it was discovered but the paths were wet and slippery and you have to go down a tiny hole. Very little ventilation and the only light was the sunshine entering the 2 hole sin the ceiling. We were in and out very quickly. The tour guides were very... More
