I went on this tour with a friend and the hiking was amazing. We first took a hike to the Dragon cave, which was relatively steep, but not incredibly difficult, and walked around inside the cave. Our guide was very friendly, spoke English very well, and kept conversation going.

I'm not reviewing any particular tour, just simply commenting on some of the caves in the area. There were three of them that I saw, which were pretty good. Nothing spectacular, but certainly worth checking out if you are in San Cristobal, as they are a short drive away. You can
