Went on a Monday morning and had the cave to ourselves. Joshua was a great guide and provided a knowledgeable and humorous tour. Cave was fun and mildly challenging due to some smaller openings that look impassable at first glance. I’m 6’3 180lbs and had no issues going anywhere. Though the cave is not renovated for a walking tour. You will get wet, and muddy and have to be somewhat flexible to do the real fun portions. Afterwards we were provided refreshments, towels and a place to shower and change.

Our experience today traveling through these caves was transformative and exhilerating. Admittedly, it was our first cave visit but experiencing the bats, fitting through the tight spots when at first it didn't seem like we could, clumbing through tight spaces, and the experienced and calming influence of our guide, Elvis, was absolutely awesome!!! An amazing value (in part, yes, because it's out of the way), it wouldn't be possible to recommend this tour more highly. Mauricio was also a pleasure to work with. You are truly missing out if you visit Arenal and do not find the time to take this tour. Absolutely exhilerating and transformative!!!

You will be wet, squeezed and uncomfortable, but it is absolutely worth it! A guide accompanies you and helps you along the way.

This cave offers an exhilarating experience where you'll get dirty, wet, and crawl through small holes. The cave formations are fascinating, and it's teeming with diverse living creatures, including four species of bats. The hike to the cave entrance was through lush greenery and breathtaking scenery. Our tour guide, Luis, was friendly and made exploring enjoyable; remember to bring cash to tip him. They provide helmets and rubber boots for $30 USD per person (cash only), with showers available after the adventure. There's also an onsite restaurant. While the cave is cool, the check-in area outside is hot and humid. We drove from Monteverde, encountering some gravel roads and potholes, but the scenic views were stunning. If you're into darkness, wildlife, and natural formations, this cave is perfect for you.

Es war einmalig. Mann muss auf allen vieren durch enge gänge kriechen. Hat richtig Spaß gemacht. Wir waren sehr gut aufgehoben bei unserem guide. Er hat uns immer weiter geholfen oder leichtere strecken vorgeschlagen. Duschen sind vorhanden. Mann bekommt einen Helm und wer mag Gummistiefel aber mit sneaker geht es auch. Vor Ort nur Barzahlung. Kleines wetbag ist praktisch wenn man fotos machen möchte.

Topamos con la suerte de ir con un grupo pequeño (6 personas) eso hizo que la experiencia fuera mejor. Había tiempo para descansar, hablar de las cavernas, tomar fotos, etc.. El guía fue bueno. Se dura casi 2 horas en hacer el recorrido. Al momento que fui valía 15 mil
