“Just a cave in the jungle”

Worth a visit if you are on a tour bus but I wouldn't go out of my way for it. 250CPF entry for adults then a 5 minute walk through jungle into an average sized cave where the locals hid from the French back in the day.

We stopped here on whim with our rental car. The road to the track is completely sealed and there is plenty of parking. You take a gorgeous little walk through the bush (5 minutes max), past a burbling brook to a large cave. The cave has a little catholic shrine and further back is the hide out the local queen used during the second half of the 19th century. The track was a little muddy. If you don't have a tourch, you can rent one from the friendly lady running the entry kiosk.
