It's not common to see caves and bats on a small island. This was a cool experience to add to a fun day on Middle Caicos. The guide was knowledgeable and funny!

As these caves require you to travel to middles Caicos, which requires a ferry ride and then car rental....I don't recommend it if you arent already there. It is a full day excursion from South Turk and practically nothing else to do on the Island except drive around and look for random beaches

On an overcast day we decided to recover from our burns and take the TCI ferry over to north Caicos to explore. We had arranged for a rental car all day for $70...well worth it! We drove very easily to the caves and contrary to what the local maps tell you this is not a free thing to do. We... More

This cave is large and spacious, you will not feel claustrophobic at all (trust me, because I get claustrophobia.) there are many cool photo ops. You don't go too deep in the caves, it takes about 30 minutes, an get a little slippery, so wear shoes to accommodate for that. You will see bats, they're very cool.

Use a guide. Not for those afraid of the dark or bats. 4 species of bats use this cave including the Cuban Fruit bat which does not like light. They provide flashlights.

The caves no longer allow self guided tours due to vandalism so you pay $20 each to get a knowledgeable guide and they supply the flashlights. If you have been to caves before, these are no different. there are columns and bats, pools and slippery spots. I like supporting the locals and recommend the stop.

This was really cool. Neat experience seeing live bats in their natural habitat. Our guide was so knowledgeable. They provide flashlights but make sure you wear good non slip shoes, my husband slipped and hurt his hand.

It's a nice place to check out if you're on middle caicos. The person giving the tour was fun and joked around. I was surprised how large the cave was.

These caves are historically interesting and you can enter the front part of the caves for free. There is a point after which you are supposed to have a guide. There isn't a lot in the caves, stalagmites, stalactites and bats. There is no lighting but the tour provides a flashlight. The tour is a little thin on facts and... More

We visited in Dec 2015. The guided tour ($20 per person) was informative and worth it. Bring bug spray as it is very buggy outside of the caved. Wirth a stop on Middle Caicos.
