worth a visit , if you have the time

We had some free time, decide to go visit, interesting, more didactic and good for the kids, but worth going if you around and have the free time.

It's a big cave. And yes, it is pretty big. But it is still just a big cave. We had to get into the park and the most sensible option was to take a tour. I regretted this. The tour was horrendous and exhausting.

I wasn't expecting to like a cave with a cheesy milodon statue at the front but we were taken there on a guided tour. I have to admit it's actually quite an impressive cave with some interesting info on the signs and leaflet and a network of walking trails. Shame they feel it's ok to charge 5000 pesos to see...

The cave was a stopping off point as part of our tour on the way back from Torres Del Paine. Tour guide did not accompany us however there are lots of facts posted at strategic points to explain how the cave was formed. Interesting to walk through the excavated parts, the tour taking about 30-45mins. It was quite late by... More

We visited the Cueva on the way back from a day tour of the Torres Del Paine Nacional Parc. The fauna history has been well documented and the interactive displays are good for children and those who don't have a good command of Spanish.

The little museum could be better but it is a good story. Young families would enjoy it. It is an easy 15-minute walk.

Nice, quick, and probably better to go on your own and not on a tour. Hopefully you'll be there on a sunny or overcast day because it'd be more difficult to enjoy the surroundings with too much rain. If you are on a tour that continues to Lago Grey...take a snack! His is a small detail they left out, and... More

Get off the bus if included in your tour. Otherwise, don't bother. May be interesting for a ten years old.

This place had a large building and carpark,that looks like ours really something. There is a small fee for entry to the cave. Unfortunately from my viewpoint, the cave has little remaining evidence of Milodon, archeology, anthropology, or any other 'ology', so it's a little underwhelming. There are a lot of very recent footprints around a concrete statue of what... More
