These caves are a must see while in Viñales. Even for those who fear closed in spaces, there is ample room to love and view the interior and a lovely boat ride awaits you.

A comfortable walk to an underground river, where a boat will take you through a river to the exit of the cave. It is a beautiful trip, with a good mix of walking and boat riding.

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
