You should be comfortable with being in dark caves (obviously), climbing slippery rocks, rapelling down for 10-20 m, jumping into pools from 8m above. If you are, it's a great experience! Our guides were young, relaxed, professional guys. Equipment was perfectly fine as well

This was a spectacular trip from San Cristobal to the cave. The climbing guides were knowledgeable and placed a high priority on safety. My trip underground lasted about 5 hours and I enjoyed every minute of it. You should book your trip with this company!

Guides were excellent and attentive to our needs. Best outdoor adventure I've done. You should be in good physical condition, there is a bit of hard climbing, but after that the repelling & underground river sliding is totally awesome.

This adventure through the cavern system formed by an underground river, culminating in the Chorreadero Waterfall was unforgettable and truly an amazing experience.
