We went to this cave with Barracuda Tours on a half day snorkeling tour. We paid 35 each and it was totally worth it. Just enough time to walk down on our own to the cave and swim in the (freezing) water. Got some great...More

Visited here as part of a jeep safari and it was lovely to get into the refreshingly cold water! Nice place to stop and not too busy when we were there.

Be aware of tour guide cornering you to force for tips! Otherwise, a very nice cave with different rock formations to view and touch. Water is drinkable and it's perceived to elongate your life among other things.

When we arrived there were 5 other people at the cave. It is not large but great for snorkelling. My kids had great fun trying to get to the bottom (22 metres) and the eldest made it. Three bus loads of teenagers arrived as we...More

Loved swimming around the cave. The water is on the cool side but it was a lot of fun. Beware that there are a lot of stairs to climb down and up

Visiting these caves was a unique experience. It is a place of wonder and natural beauty. There is a pathway and good lighting, but I would not have someone with limited mobility undertake this tour. My husband and I went with our two teenage children....More

You don’t need to know how to swim to visit. One end is shallow.

It's less than an hour, just off the Varadero Airport road... The whole Coral Beach/Saturn Cave tour cost $35 CUC each so I'd think $20 CUC return is about right... There is an admission charge to the cave.

That would depend o where you are staying. It is only 5 CUC to get in and always get the price from the Taxi driver before leaving. We were driven from Melia Penninsula to Cali 13 for 15 CUC but it is normally 20 CUC.
