Worth a visit to this cave, Guide was funny but you need to take care as steps were rough and possible to bang your head on the roof

It was ok...saw bats in real life and they don't care for people so no biting.. It was an interesting stop for our shopping trip into town. Used the double decker bus and enjoyed the scenery.

This is a neat little cave that you get to explore - there are bats all over the place - be sure to wear a hat!

Amazing place to visit, not too far from the hotels, I can say that's in the walking distance. It took 35 minutes from my hotel. First thing you'll notice is that there is never any people in the caves. The guide (well educated University graduate) will tell you everything you want to know, and I used my video camera to record every bit of his speech and all the significant places around the caves for no extra charge! He was patient, kind and profesional to explain everything we wanted to know. Those are some of the most spectacular caves in Cuba, consisting of five interconnecting galleries. Some of the largest caves of Cuba, this place is well-known for amazing pictographs! If you try to ask yourself how indigenous people from pre-Columbus time knew to find perfect North without a compass and to draw that direction underground on a rock - it is very hard to find a logical answer! But, there are theories... I will leave you to discover them from the guide!

You will quickly discover that numerous bats are also living in the huge cave. Enjoy them! Some of the highlights of the cave are the “swimming caves” which are perfect for snorkeling... but I have to admit, I never explored that option further. I spent almost all day with the ancient drawings!

There is a local bus for the place, very cheap... taxis as well... but enjoy the walk... it is worth it!
