The place is one of the most visited attractions in Bonito, therfore make sure you have a reservation before. The goddess explain about the visit, which takes around 1h 30 min. If you have problems with stairs, I don't recommend. However, if not, then you have to go. The feeling is like of an Explorer entering the earth and finding... More

Best on a sunny day - still quite an amazing sight. Great exercise too, walking up all of the stairs on the way up worked off our massive breakfast!

For anyone who has done a cave tour before, this is no different. They explain the way the rock is formed over millions of years etc. What makes this truly beautiful is the water. But it's a lot of waiting around to finally get down there and the guides don't speak english.

The place is not suitable for people with reduce or limited mobility. To reach the cave have to go down several uneven steps, but the view is worth it. The tour was well organized and met the schedules.

We had a very knowledgeable geologist guide who explained how the grotto was formed and the reason for the azure coloured water(all to do with limestone and sun). The descent is quite steep and you are kitted out with protective hairnet and helmet. Plenty of time to look at grotto and ask questions.

This cave contains lots of stalagmites, many of which are growing towards the light. At the bottom is a very deep blue pool of water. This is caused by the light shinning on the white limestone rock at the bottom. Visits are in groups with a knowledgable guide - it involves a walk down 300 steps so wear sensible shoes.
