From swimming in narrow caves to jumping into a pool, you can have absolutely everything there. Sometimes quite tight. Don't forget shoes (no sandals) and your action cam. Best adventure so far.

Ir was nice to visit this cave where we could see the bats leaving the cave at sunset. There is a light system long the path but unfortunately it was not working and we rely on our phone lights. It was gourgeous!

The park entrance fee was Q15 and the tour was Q45. You are provided rain boots and a helmet. The tour was short and sweet, but very cool. Not a must see if you don't have time, but was worth the trip for me since...More

Great experience. But be ready to swim, climb, be in tight/dark/slippery places. Some bats. :) Don't take any phones or so, only if water resistant. And you will be all wet in the end. :)

My absolute favourite cave. You have to dive, climb, sled, also. Really great. Highly recommend even it is not to easy to reach.

We left from Lanquin and got to the park right when it opened, there was one other group that was all ready out there. The pools were wonderful to swim in, great hike and Grutas Las Marias an adventure we will never forget.
