These caves are really interesting. I am a bit claustrophobic, but everything was well lit and very open, so I didn't have any trouble. Make sure you get there just before the hour, because you have to go through with a tour, and they only leave on the hour. Our guide Crystal was excellent and even did the tour in three different languages so everyone would understand.

Very interesting tour- and our your guide was incredible. You have to climb 49 steps to get to the entrance of the cave. There are only 2 locations inside the cave where you are able to take photographs. But, my family of 4 loved it!! We loved seeing the bats hanging overhead, and hearing all the great stories that our guide shared with us. We would do it again in a heartbeat! The tour is 30-45 minutes, and you will enjoy each and every minute!! I think it was $12 per adult and (if memory serves me) $6 per child (3-11 yrs old). The grounds are immaculate. Small cafe there that serves only beer, water, soda, chips, ice cream and muffins)- and strangely- that's all you'll need while you there.

This cave was really nice. However, I live in Kentucky, so our natural caves are a little better. Great tour guide!

The tour guide was excellent (didn't get his name). He gave us alot of the island's history and also a bit of geography lessons. The caves are beautiful btw.
