“Underground wonder”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

I was delighted with the small lakes with completely transparent water and the different geological formations that looked like snow.
Unfortonately no photos are allowed.
The tour lasts about an hour and worth a visit

“Do not miss!!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Spectacular caves with enchanting views. Pristine waters, stalagmites and stalagmites without adorns nor artificial colored lights. Enormous rooms with incredible heights.

“A set from Disney”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We disliked the corny coloured lighting.

We like the fact that the caves were endless and the shapes extraordinary. Well worth a visit especially with children.

Very interesting (although the commentary is in spanish only), and a lovely cool respite from the afternoon heat.

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

It is hard to imagine that such a wonderful place exists below the ground. Wherever we looked we saw amazing stalagtites and stalagmites. Beautifully organised and wonderfully cool after the heat above.
