Amazing experience! Try turismo aventura! The guides Guille and Juan were outstanding! Not sure if there are visits conducted in English, but the explanations and insights about the cave and its formations were outstanding. Thanks for this great experience!

This cave was truly amazing! I really enjoyed it despite being a bit claustrophobic. :) Never seen anything like it. But call ahead. It's a long, windy, country road and a shame to drive all the way up there to find out that they are...More

El Soplao is a very special cave, apart from the wonderful location. Some of the crystal formations are quite unique and despite visiting many caves in various countries this rates at the top or very near. The only complaint is that the tour is very...More
