This was an extraordinary experience. Although I am troubled by claustrophobia I not only managed the 800 metre tunnel to reach the grotto, but I was almost overwhelmed with the immensity of this natural phenomenon. You stand inside a mountain with a temperature of around...More

A great way to spend a rainy (or any) afternoon. These caves are incredible - the largest show cave open to the public. And the system is still being explored!Recommend warm clothing. The guide is very knowledgeable and passionate and speaks English French and Spanish.
