We were visting Batu Cermin Cave on the way to Ruteng from Labuan Bajo. The site and cave are interesting. You can see clearly that the rock formation was under the sea. The guide was friendly and could explain the history of it.
The site can be improved by showing information board that explain the theory behind the cave.

Its a very short drive out of town. A little pricey for the guide but all money seems like it pays for maintenance and protection so that's good. Guide pretty good. Cave is pretty ordinary if you have done caves before. Nice helmets supplied...not smelly at all so may havebeen rereplaced since earlier review. The spiders are not spiders as they only have six legs so cannot be poisonous like other reviews have mentioned. The guides make a point of finding one as a bit of a point of interest but not that exciting unless you like big bugs. Not spiders. The mirror effect is not that cool either. Visit middle of day for best effect. Bring water. All in all not worth planning a big trip around but if you have time it's ok and I liked it. A little bit of bending which is fun to get through small bends so no good if you have a bad back or inflexible.

Interesting but not in great condition and not that large. Only visit if you had spare time. Guides friendly and helpful

Located not far from the town centre, the cave has a short but scenic walk to the entrance. Unfortunately we went in dry season when apparently it is less spectacular due to the absence of lakes inside (the name of the cave means reflection cave). A guide takes you through, the tour is not too long and taxing. Not bad for a quick visit but probably not worth going out of your way for.

Don't waste your time visiting this place. It is the worst cave i have ever been. A lot of mosquitoes. The place is small. Don't forget to bring flashlight.
