You will need to be able to step up at least 15/30 cms over rough rock steps to reach the cave. A slow climb of about 10 minutes. If you have problem knees it might be a difficult. Apart from this a high level of...More

Health & Safety in Britain or the USA would never sanction the decidedly dodgy 150m climb up and down the slippery rocks to the entrance of the caves, but for those with an adventurous spirit, and strong knees, it's well worth it.

Having visited many caves around the world, as such none of this was surprise, but I certainly would recommend it if you haven't been to many caves! Good mixture of things to see - watch out for the baby Boa!

Well worth adding this to your visit to Vinales. Walking through deep caves with a guide. Informative, entertaining and great fun.

If it is your 1st visit to that type of caves it would be great experience, as I have been in lot's of them, it was ok. 10 CUC per person.

I enjoyed the tour - well conducted. The area is very interesting, But if you've been to Mammoth or Antelope Canyon or similar places, it's another example of caves. This is, however, extensive and lovely

You don't need to be an aerobics teacher, my 75 year old mother could do it, but yes you do need to be able to climb a small hill and walk some pretty steep stair ladders . It was a really worth while visit. Not...More
