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

Very interesting and cool experience. The tour was 5cuc and was well worth it. Our guide Renee spoke great English aswell as French. Lots of bats but they dont bug you as long as you dont bug them. Be willing to get dirty and crawl into the smaller sections, it is a great adventure. Very humid and hot in the... More

I would recommend to go to the Curve Ambrosio Cave if you staying in Varadero. The gentleman showed us in the cave and he gave us a torch to go around in the cave but I would recommend if you can get a torch before you go there and another thing I would recommend to take a bottle of water... More

This is good small cave just a few minutes walk from the resort that we stayed. Size is good enough to bring young kids as they won't be as scared as going into a massive cave system. Still has a lot of bats and a number of chambers to explore. My kids had fun.

Thank Ranris
