“What a cave.”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Set in the archialogical site, this is the best of the Latima caves. It is amazingly high and deep. The area of caves that is now open to the public seems to have been reduced, but you can still see and visit the best two or three.

“Vast cavern”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

We enjoyed the lady singing to demonstrate the echo with the guided party who were ahead of us. The quarry is an impressive size and we were sad it was half closed off, with no explanation.

“echo”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Very interesting and our guide sang and it was a good experience and demonstration of the incredible acoustics. Amazing how nature can create such natural wonders.

Careful if you have vertigo or claustrophobic since when you get in - it is quite dark inside - or just stay by the entrance.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

The atmosphere here is definitely worth experiencing and is slightly spooky even in the presence of loud and jolly tourists.
