Interesting visit to a huge cave, lots of natural formations. Had my two kids with me ( 11 and 8 yrs old) they loved it. Local guide very knowledgeable and kind. Worth a visit!

Definitely worth checking out! The best part of the experience is when your deep in the cave and the guides tell you to turn off your flashlights! I couldn't help but think about how peaceful and quiet the cave was in comparison to life in...More
