Not the easiest trail to transverse; especially if you are handicapped in any way. Although, I have been over rougher trails. They have horses that you can ride a short loop around near the cave formations. They have some pay as you go bathrooms and...More

From where we had lunch coming from the Blue Lagoon, we can see this cave but did not actually go there. Just seeing it from a short distance was enough.

Bantay Abot Cave is actually a hill with a hole in it. Locals say it looks like a green whale. We did not pay to go in, as personally, I don't think you should have to. It is, after all, just a hole in a...More
