“Nice tour underground”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

You are taken on a tour of the cave, which is quite long. It's a bit cool and wet down there, so bring a jacket. They gave some good explanations about how they were formed, as well as some general info on the Volcano and such. There are some neat formations in there. If you don't speak Spanish, make sure to bring a translator with you.

“Worth the hike”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Interesting and fun, not cheap but beautiful. Make sure you have enough time to take a hike through the nearby forest.

“The volcanic caves”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

It's no worth the 15000 pesos...
We went there when it was raining.
The cave is good, but it shouldn't be that expensive !!!
The explanations were a bit poor...It's not really easy to go there with very young children!

“A short tour, but worthwhile”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

After a difficult road of volcanic ash, I got to the park. It's a very different landscape with a cool, albeit short, descent into the caves. Make sure you pack a raincoat, because it drips all over inside the cave. Really cool!

“Interesting trip inside the earth”
Reviewed February 17, 2012

The volcanic cave is well explained by local guides and the caves provide a sound speological experience, worth for children and adults (especially when all lights are turned out, to experience the absolute darkness).

The road to the caves, around half an hour, is in extreme poor conditions.
