“Spectacular but be wary”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

Living with Fibromyalgia I was wary about venturing this much. However was very glad I did because it was well worth the extra pain. I'd say pick a free day and give it a go. Definitely not suitable if you require walking aids.

“Really nice day out with a surprise at the end”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

Amazingly warm inside was my first impression. The guide spoke in both english and spanish. There is an auditoruim set up deep within the cave as the acoustics are supposed to be perfect. There is a really neat surprise at the end... but you'll have to go in person to find out what it is... You won't be disappointed.

“Loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

This is a strict guided tour and takes a bit of climbing down and up (dont wear beach flip flops for this) but well worth seeing and walking through. The tour takes about 50 minutes in all through what is essentially a volcano tube. There are a couple of points at which we had to bend down to get into the next section and the entrance is tight - but overall it is not a problem at all.

“Well worth the vist”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Was a great experience climbing up and down tunnels created by volcanoes , tour guide was ok and got the gist of what she was saying but was mostly in spanish and german ( tip to all people wanting to go to these places is hire a car !! All attractions are close by and tour reps rip you off buy the 6 attractions together , we did 4 in one day was only 30 euros each adult and children fee under 6 . someone in our hotel got charged 25 euros to take her 4 year old on each coach trip !!! so cheaper to hire car and not pay for them at these attractions

“Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

The lava caves are great. There is a bit off walking up and down steps and some tightish squeezes. However, I would say it is doable for most people with low level fitness. Not suitable if you are claustrophobic. Teenagers loved it especially the surprise.

Well worth a visit.
