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.

If you are staying in Varadero and are near these caves they are well worth the visit, myself and my partner took the short hike to the caves and were glad that we did! There was some ancient cave art, and if you can stand confined and dark spaces with the odd cockroach it is an amazing experience. As a... More

The man at the cabin outside takes your 5 cuc, gives you a torch and let's you loose in the cave! We saw bats, cockroaches (not so fun), some cool formations and some old cave paintings. It felt like we were discovering stuff for ourselves, which doesn't happen in developed sites. Would recommend!

Cool little cave you can explore by torchlight. You get a mini tour with the 5 cuc entrance fee which isn't all that interesting but the guy doing it was very friendly and will lend you a torch to explore afterwards. Lots of bats which is either the best part or the worst part depending on how feel about them.... More

It is an interesting place to stop if you are around. Not very long to visit (about 30 minutes). If you are afraid of bats - do not go there!

This was an interesting enjoyable visit. Would highly recommend it for Cuban wildlife and nature of a different kind. The Varadero bus will stop at this site. I walked from our resort. The guide took you into the cave and gave you the lay of the land OK the cave. His English was "excellente". Many bats most of them were... More

We stumbled across this while walking around near our resort one day. Only 5 pesos and you can see so many things! Highly recommend taking the time to see this place!

For 5CUC, this cave was worth the time (1hour) especially if you are staying at the Royalton Hicacos as it is only a 10min walk from the resort (heading east along the main road). The guide was personable and very knowledgeable regarding the history of the cave. There is only one guide so you may have to wait if they... More

We walked to this cave from our resort. It was interesting, with bats and Indian paintings. It takes about 30 - 45 minutes to see it all. The guide from the entrance desk gave us a tour. This is included in the 5 CUC entrance fee - I would definitely recommend having the guide show you around. His knowledge was... More
