Poor guide, great cave

Busy, rushed and a dry, rehearsed, charmless tour guide. However, the cave itself is fantastic and worth the cost to visit.

See the olms/human fish
Nov 2020
What Jama might lack in size, it more than makes up for in two other areas. First off, you can see the vulnerable (per the IUCN) "human fish" or olm. This little creature is pretty incredible, and endemic to water, in caves, in only Croatia and parts of neighboring countries (Italy, Slovenia and Bosnia). Secondly, the guide we had was excellent. Very knowledgeable, friendly, and passionate about caves, caving, the human fish... I've been to many-a-cave in numerous countries, and our guide here was one of, if not the most, knowledgeable and informative. I definitely learned more than I was expecting to.

Tickets are 75kn/adult, and our tour was about an hour (though our group asked him heaps of questions, so maybe the tour is usually a little shorter than that). Everything is kind of a ghost town--during winter and during The Covid--so now is definitely the time to go. (Just email or call a day ahead of time to set up a tour).

Highly recommend for fans of caves and/or weird, cool species you can't see too many other places.

Oh, one last note: to contradict what a reviewer a few down said about this cave not being for the faint of heart or those who are claustrophobic, I didn't think it was claustrophobic at all. Granted, I'm not prone to claustrophobia in the slightest, but I've definitely been in caves with smaller rooms and tighter passages, and I wouldn't think this would be too confining for others. There are a good number of stairs, but the guide will let you take your time walking up them.

Nice place to visit. One of the best local attractions. Direction to the place a not good and service staff tend to be rude. Cave was interesting and great to see.

We visited this cave this afternoon as we were in Porec. This cave is not so big but is worth visiting. We visited it with a passionate guide. The price is 75 Kune for an adult.

Beautiful cave

Wonderful cave to visit with family and young children. The rock formations are absolutely stunning. It is easily accessible, well lit and the paths are secured.
The facilities around the cave are wonderful. The tourguides are great.

We visited here in August as part of a family holiday. The caves, guides and facilities were excellent. It is physically demanding and not for the faint hearted or those with claustrophobia. My nieces enjoyed the pony ride and this could be expanded. All told a nice place

Worthwhile trip
Oct 2019 • Couples
My wife and I visited while on holiday in Istria on an overcast day. The guided tour was very informative and the guide spoke English, German & Italian.
The visit was well worth the money.

Escape from the rain
Sep 2019 • Couples
One of the best cave visits we have done (and we’ve done a few!).
Very well organised parking, restaurant, clean toilets and excellent English speaking guide.
The tour lasts about 40 mins and involves descending and then ascending 270 quite slippery steep steps. Down to a depth of 60m.
Quite a few young children with their parents. Most were being carried which didn’t seem sensible to us. And would not have been tolerated in the UK with H&S rules as they are.
Well worth a visit (even on a sunny day).

Instersting, friendly & pretty
Sep 2019 • Couples
My girlfriend and me came to visit as last group of the day in 5 o'clock, and we were the only ones. Our guide, who only a day before gave her last exam (I think her name is Karmen), was very friendly, gave us a number of interesting facts, explained all attractions and readily answered our questions. She was very professional & kind. The place is not big, cave is some 200-300 steps deep, no problem for a healthy individual, and very pretty. Take long sleeves because temperature inside is always about 14°C.
