Worth seeing if you happen to be in the area, but don't bother paying the fee for the "guided tour". The tour guide, while energetic and friendly, provided little information or interesting facts regarding the cave. There was a concert being set up in one of the larger rooms while I was there, scheduled for later that evening. That, I suppose, would be pretty cool, but the cave itself is nothing special and the guide adds nothing extraordinary to it.

“good caves, very different from a living cave”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

These caves are old lava tubes and areas where volcanic eruption formed the caves and made the caverns and such. Because of this, it is not a living cave where there has been water running through the limestone and stalactites and stalagmites are not growing. Therefore you don't get the varied colors of a living cave and the different formations. That said, it is still quite an interesting cave because you are walking through an area where lava once flowed. it reminded me of all the Hollywood "blockbusters" that showed the magma flowing through the tunnels. You do have to go with this in mind - the experience of seeing a lava cave versus a limestone living cave and compare the two because otherwise, it might not be as fascinating. And at the end, there is a nice surprise which refused to be photographed by me unfortunately. So I would say it is worth the trip and expense

“Boring and not worth the fee”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

My friends and I made a point to stop at this cave having read about it and heard good things. We were extremely disappointed. The tour guide said nothing interesting (he really struggled with speaking English) and the cave it self is small and boring. It might be more interesting to come for an evening concert but the cave tour is definitely not worth the 9 Euro fee. Go to Timanfaya Park instead.

“Ah! Wait for the secret of the cave!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great journey to the centre of the volcanic earth. Beautiful lighting by Jesus de Soto emerges you in the colours of the amazing geology. Another Manrique triumph through and through. Couple this trip with Jameos de Aqua down the road for a full day out.

“a lava tunnel at its best”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This empty lava tunnel has been turned into an amazing set of walkable caves. You must enter with a guide, and the rock formations you see are really worth the visit. What's more the caves hold a secret... that you'll have to find out by yourselves :p
