A true caving experience. Physically challenging, but not overly so, that will leave you in awe of the beauty of the cave. Make sure to wear clothing that you don't mind potentiality ruining.

We had a guide and went down deep into the Crystal Cave! It was a very cool experience, very dark, quiet and damp in the cave. There were times where we needed to squeeze through cracks and crevices. Bring spare batteries incase your lights go...More

If you thought ATM was physically challenging then Crystal Cave is not for you. If you want an adventure without the crowds, seriously consider this challenge! There is mud, crawling (or sliding) down narrow sharp passages, no security ropes, while using only your headlamp and...More

Breath taking, amazing, awe. If you truly love adventure and beauty, it's a place you cannot, not go. ( just to put it mildly ) It caught me by surprise. The most amazing formation I have ever seen. If you have the courage after you...More

Nice cave combined with a jungle hike to get to it. Best part was "the music room" where you can tap on the formations and they make a nice sound.

The passages at Crystal Cave are no comparison. Some of them are narrow enough for an average sized person like me to have to take her small backpack off to climb through. There are no tunnels or passages in ATM that you... More
