Owner description: World famous, are visited since 1898; inside is lake Martel, considered one of the largest underground lakes in the world, where live classical music concerts are performed every day. You can cross the lake on a boat at the end of the concert. BEWARE, there are two caves to visit in Porto Cristo, the largest and more frequently visited are the Caves of Drach. We advise to get tickets online from our web page, the same price than at the ticket office and you don´t need to print it.

A trip agency were charging 42 euros per person for the caves. We opted instead to pay 9 euros each on the public bus, and about 14 euroes each for entry. I didnt really consider it value for money at all. We were not shown any video unlike previous reviewers seem to have been. We entered the cave, were ordered along by men holding flashlights. In my opinion, far too many people are allowed in at once. The caves are very pretty to look at, but due to the volume of people we were unable to stop and properly look at anything as we were constantly being moved along and had people barging into us, making it impossible to take any kind of photo. We were attracted to the caves by the boat trip at the end, however we did not bother with the boat trip as we would have had to queue for easily at least twenty minutes just to get on a boat for roughly two minutes. The concert was very nice however I would have preferred to have been given more info about the caves etc and taken in in a smaller group. Not worth the entrance fee.

This is an excellent trip, if you only do one make sure its this one.We went with no frills excursions. Our guide Juan was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic even though he must have done this trip loads of times. We got to see a lot more than we would have done if we had made the trip ourselves which we had considered doing. Porto Cristo is especially pretty and the caves themselves are awe inspiring. Thanks also to Rafa the driver for a safe and comfortable trip.

Spectacular caves, i have never seen anything like it, the show once you are in there is very serene and calming, you forget that you are actually in a cave.
