These caves are very interesting, but if you have viewed a lot of caves prior to this, you will not really see anything new.

Lots os stairs and quite humid. Lovely sights to see though, prepare to pay if you take your camera. We were told ahead we couldn't take our camera but would have if we had known there was only a small fee. Wear comfy sneakers

This is a do not miss tour! $5CUC fee plus $5CUC if you want to take your camera. It is very hot and humid in the caves and over 160 stairs down.
