Walking through these very well maintained and generously lighted caves was impressive. The lack of tourism has helped these caves maintain their beauty and natural appearance. The boat ride on the river located at the bottom of the caves was like no other experience and...More

I saw families with babies. They didn't give out safety belts do I guess it's your responsibility. It's not that fantastic an experience. I would choose a different place to visit
