My teenage boys and husband enjoyed it, but it was truly one of the most awful experiences of my life. I wish someone would have told me that you will spend 4 hours in a dark, wet, enclosed space with bats flying all around and that you climb straight up wet, slippery rocks with wet shoes. If you were to fall, it would be onto rocks and then into the mucky, waist deep water below.
The guide said to be aware of snakes. I asked what was the plan in case someone got bit... And he replied, "Well, I'm not sucking it out!" and then went to another subject. In other words, there was no plan. I actually hardly ever saw the guide once we were inside the cave. He was up front telling people where to step, and I was about a mile behind having panic attacks. If you lag behind, you are on your own, at least with this guide.
Then your reward, when you finally make it to the top, is to view the bones of a murdered little girl who was sacrificed to the gods. And then you get to turn around and do it all again, except downhill this time.
If you are even the least bit claustrophobic, think twice before you go. If you don't like slopping around in mucky water with who knows what in it, bats flying around you in the dark, slithering on your belly to get between rocks, or climbing up and down steep, slippery, wet rocks, maybe this isn't for you. I wish someone had told me.
