You had to climb into a sma ll opening to get into the cave and it smelled of urine. I went in and came right back out.

“Interesting entry, but smells of bat droppings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

This is an interesting cave, since you must crawl through a small opening and tumble down to enter the first cave. Our tour guide had thoughtfully laid a life jacket to "cushion" our crawl.

This made for some fun.

The cave itself is unfortunately stuffy and (undesirably though expectedly ) smelled of guano - bat droppings! We hurried and ambled up the rocks to the next cave, which had some fresh air from a shaft in the rock.This is really a pair of caves more for wacky photos (people peering through a hole in the rock, ets )

Though it was interesting first time, I would not come here again.

You can read my frank and honest account of our El Nido trip (with dozens of photos) here - http://goo.gl/6HyXU

“A tricky way to get in.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

My friend and I had a fun time getting into this cave before we we're able to see the gem inside. Me as a 5 footer, I still need somebody to lift and push me to get in the way. You have to put a cushion on the flat rock to avoid bruises and scratch My healthy friends and aged one are eager to get in and so they took the risk and it really pays off! It's a worth visiting spot.
