We drove from Ponce to the caverns, coming from the south involved difficult driving on very winding roads. The staff that helped us were very good. However there were a lot of... read more

Lots ø walking but worth it. Some of the steps are steep. The facilities at the start are not always open and close early. Bring your own water.

The incredible underground cave system is truly a visit I am glad to have seen. There is an audio set given to you to describe the multiple stops during the tour, which we found very helpful as it became difficult to hear the tour guide due to cave acoustics. However, getting down to the caves was unorganized at best. We... More

We have seen Cenotes and underground river in the Cancun but this is a must to see if you are interested in archaeological adventures. Caves are huge with milllion + years old stalagmites and stalactites. If you are travelling from San Juan the drive is beautiful as you can drive along the sea beaches and local towns to know the...

We drove from Ponce to the caverns, coming from the south involved difficult driving on very winding roads. The staff that helped us were very good. However there were a lot of staff standing around but there was a lot to do. Bathrooms needed stocking, repair and cleaning. Our trolley driver gave f an unfriendly vibe, maybe tired, we were...

Once you get to the caves you can enjoy an amazing underground network with a wonderful audio set to describe what you are seeing and learn how the caves were formed. Getting down to the caves is a different story. We purchased our tickets and were told the tour would leave in about 20 minutes later. Almost two hours later... More

If you have never been to a cave before, you will like this one. It's very easy to get to from Arecibo. Get early to buy tickets them go see the Arecibo Observatory which is a 20 minute drive away. Or wait two hours of you happen get in behind school kids on a weekday. It is an open cave... More

Previous reviews have said that Sunday is their busiest day. They were right. We arrived at 9 AM and there were already a lot of people there. The website says they open at eight, but if you call, they tell you they open at 9. We had to wait a half hour for our tour. When you get there, you... More
