The caves were my families FAVORITE activity while in Costa Rica! There were 5 of us, including my 3 kids ages 18, 10, 9. I was hesitant to tell them too much about the activity prior to arriving because I didn't want them to freak about the bats and critters they'd see inside, but they were totally gung ho! It's shocking how small some of the spaces you crawl through are. I wouldn't recommend a guy who's over 6', 200 pounds go through! I was also nervous about having my kids go through because there weren't a ton of reviews from families with kids, but ABSOLUTELY they did great, and made it through a lot of areas a lot easier than I did! It's not strenuous, you just need a good attitude and be very ready to get filthy. I brought old tennis shoes and my kids all had Keens covered toed sandals. I don't recommend wearing Teva type sandals; there's too many rocks you could stub your toe on. I do recommend wearing long camping pants and thin long sleeved tshirt as well to cut down on possibility of scrapes. It's an awesome 2 hour adventure with great showers to clean up in at the end. Def bring a change of clothes! It's a 45 min drive from La Fortuna. You won't regret going!! We had a blast!
