“Great caves, Great guide, and interesting history”
Review of Ambrosio Cave

Ambrosio Cave

I thought the price was reasonable for what we saw, the caves were interesting to see even if you're not interested in the history and the links with the mayan calendar. The bats were very cute/small and were flying around everywhere, some sleeping and huddled up together. It was interesting to learn the importance of bats in cuba and what they do.
Also you can enter the cave without a guide so it feels like you are discovering something yourself, which in my opinion is even better, you can take your time for pictures and just taking everything in!
All round a great trip!

Because of the guide we really enjoyed to see this cave. No other tourists were there so we really got the full attention and explanation. You can see some fruitbugs and old carvings (we aren't really sure if they are real or just drawn). It's a nice trip when you are staying over in Varadero. (costs to enter are 5 CUC and the Hop on hop off bus tour from varadero stops at this cave)

Interesting 15-20 minutes activity. If you have the day pass for the bus it's worth a stop if you into these kind of things.
