Brilliant. My wife and I had the place to ourselves, once a few local kids showed us safely past the entrance. Amazing experience. It did cost T$15 per person, I guess to keep the generator running for the lights in the cave :)

If you have an underwater torch, take it but even without it, use your snorkelling gear so you can see even more. Well worth the visit TOP20 @NZ$16. So refreshing and great formations.
