Most interesting feature of the Hicacos Penisula after the beach and reef snorkeling. Easy to access for anyone. Take the bus for 5 CUC from anywhere along the Hicacos Peninsula. After the cave visit the Reserva Ecologica de Varahicacos

We decided to tour ourselves around on mopeds and headed over the ambrosia cave- it was pretty cool if you get a chance to check it out you should. It cost 5 cuc and you had a guide who took you around. A must to check out unless you don't like bats lol!

Worth visit if part of an excursion. Don't expect UK standards of access and lighting. Great if you love swimming - 22m deep

I loved the bats and they are everywhere so many in fact you can hear them communicating with each other. The guide did a good job of explaining the drawings and how the cave was formed.

A very cool stop as we were walking by. Many different pictographs along with bats in a neat cave that was easy to access and walk about. The lady working there was very passionate about the bats and history of the cave and was a pleasure to deal with.

We walked to this cave from our nearby hotel Blau to learn about the history of this area. Our guide was so knowledgeable and amusing he made the visit so enjoyable. There are bats flying around the cave but they do not come near you, so no need to worry. There are paintings on the wall from the ancient Indians.... More

We visited this cave in August. The guide was very interesting and had lots of information to share about the cave, the paintings and... the bats! I, personally, don't like flying birds around me. However, this didn't stop me from visiting cueva de ambrosio. Yes, the bats fly, but they don't come near people. We were there with our 7-year... More

If you are afraid of bats, do not go there! The guide was very friendly and told a lot of interesting things about the cave. Worth a visit!

I went to the cave with my husband to see the three species of bats that are native to the cave. In all honesty, I was pleased and surprised by the gentleman who worked there, he was knowledgeable about the history of the caves, the vegetation, and the bats. I truly recommend this as it is a short trip by... More
