We visited as part of a tour. There was a resident archeologist who was so knowledgeable about the history of the wall painting and also the bats. The caves were teeming with bats, who were only just above our heads. If you visit, make sure you wear trainers or enclosed shoes, as the floor is very uneven and there are... More

We were lucky enough to arrive just as a small group tour was starting, and the guide was able to point out the features - bats, petroglyphs etc. and give a little background. Walking distance from Iberostar Varadero - just walk out to the highway and turn left for a few hundred metres.

Second visit to this amazing Cave: ancient cave paintings and fabulous bats. Tricks: 1. go between noon and 1pm as the light shines beautifully into holes from above at that time and you get the best views and photos. 2. The guide gives you a flashlight but if you have your own stronger one take it along as well, as... More

This is a great little excursion in Varadero! It's about a 4 minute walk from the nearest hop on/hop off bus stop, and is 5 CUC for entry. We spent a bit over an hour in this small cave system. The guide took our payment and talked to us about the cave's natural features and man-made drawings (made by the... More

Stumbled across this place by accident as we were walking from our hotel to Carahicacos Ecological Reserve and thought we'd have a look. It was only 5 CUC entrance and the guide made the visit very interesting. He pointed out the drawings on the walls - giving explanations and also explained about the caves themselves and the many bats. He... More

this is really accessible with the town bus, and it is worth the time and money, you should go visit that cave, this is very interesting to see that people could live in these caves, with almost nothing... take a flashlight it will help.

The guide was knowledgeable, funny, friendly, and very kind! He gave me a 3CUP note of Che Guerrera when I professed my quest for authentic Cuban money! I was full of gratitude! The cave is easy to get to if you take the very affordable hop on/off tour bus. My only complaint is this cave has no pools or water... More
