Small area of caves however, If visiting here take the tour for 5 peso it was well worth it. The guide pointed out so much we would have either missed or not understood

The Ambrosio Cave was absolutely awesome. A quick drive from our hotel (the Allegro Palma Real) and we are looking at Pre-Columbian drawings. The guide was very informative regarding the cave, the drawings and the bats in the cave. Only 5 pesos to go in...More

Somewhat interesting but I felt sorry for the bats being disturbed by flashlights. Granted that's probably the only way you would get to see them in the daytime. It is rather overpriced at 5 cuc's a person unless you get a very good guide.

Amazing to see ancient wall-paintings and loads of bats. A good strong torch is provided. Holes in the roof give a spotlight effect. Wear trainers and take water.

I liked the caves....high enough not to crouch down....petroglyphs and stalagmites to see as well. But the bats are cool....you go in with a flash light and that will disturb the bats making them fly about.... to into your hair though :) The tour guide...More

Just take the bus $5 CUCs per person for the bus. And $5 for entry. The guide will give you a tour and explain what the caves were used for and some history of the island.
