“Bats!!”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

We rented a nice ol 56 Plymouth and headed out with our 4 kids to find a cave to explore on a rainy day. We ended up here and stayed here for 1 hour exploring and marvelling at the 100's of bats. The kids were even fortunate enough to see roaches too. We were there mostly on our own but found a nice couple from the Netherlands on our way out that took a family photo for us. We paid 5 cuc each per adult and kids were free. It was well worth the visit and left a very lasting impression on our children. We highly recommend it, very fun outing!!

“Very Interesting Cave”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Wonderful attraction in Varadero within walking distance from several famous hotels. The guide is speaks excellent English and is always ready to tell you some interesting facts and stories. The cave is not overloaded with tourists - most likely you will be there alone, which provides excellent opportunities to watch the five kinds of bats inhabiting the cave closely. It is really exciting to see so many species of these lovely animals in one place.
