Like nothing I've ever seen. Beautiful formations! This tour goes far back into the cave and it is extraordinary. The guide, Yonquel, was very knowledgeable and spoke great English and was very personable, kind and patient. Best cave tour we've ever experienced!

The place is awesome. Very secure trip. Easy but needs to be in good health to walk thru a cavern. Beautiful formations. About 750 mts below surface, about one kilometer of walk. Recommended
