  • Highly recommended place to visit. Friendly and helpful staff. It is a long way down so make sure you have comfortable shoes and take a jacket because it is cool down there. Which is great in this heat. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
  • Beautiful oasis of calm before you enter the caves. The caves are magnificent, and bigger than any I've seen. The guide was very knowledgeable, helpful, and respectful of the cave. Definitely recommend a visit for an afternoon!
