“Nice but busy ”
I agree that the stairs are way too small to accommodate people entering and leaving the cave. Also some suttle lighting in the water would make it even better to see stuff while swimming. Water was nice!
“Go on your own after 12. ”
We went with a tour group. There was easily 60 people there. Took 10 Min's to even get down the stairs to see it and have a short, crowded swim. Really good to see though. Would have loves to actually spend an hr or so there. Without the large amount of people. We were there about 10ish. I'd say by... More
“Very cool! ”
This is a beautiful cave, and the water is pristine! It's a fairly small area for swimming, so I'd recommend doing it in a small group rather than joining a big group tour. We were a small group of 5 and had the whole place to ourselves when we arrived, but soon after a large group came and it became... More
“Amazing Cave, but very scary when swimming ”
What a nature wonder, fresh water and clean, cave with lots stalactite. but if you swim there, wow, very scary. because the water is so clean, you can see the bottom, and the cave has no light, and very dark. it takes a few minutes to let you eyes to adopt the environment. the deepest spot is 22M, so when...

“Underground Wonder ”
Been to many caves, this one is very good, safe and lots to see. Lots of crystals, stallagmites, stallagtites, and columns. Spent an hour at least underground, well worth it.
“pretty cool ”
pretty cool. good to visit once. but i wouldn't go back again. been there, done that, move on, sort of thing.
“A must go! ”
We´ve only been thirty minutes in the caves but it really worth it! The water was at 24 degress and swimming in a natural pool inside a cave is very relaxing. I surely recommend it.
“Amaze of Nature ”
If you are a swimmer you will LOVE this! If you are not a swimmer you will still be amazed by this cave. It is cool and fresh...not salt water. Once your in the water move around and check out the small caves. It is truly amazing! Would definitely go again
“Comfort zone crushed... ”
We took a dip in this dark cave's fresh water lake. We were not sure if there were any fish in it at first, we later realized there are none. This was a relief as it is already a little unsettling to swim here. You will see stalactites and stalagmites in and out of the water. The water is cool... More
“Awesome for swimming and snorkeling ”
Water is sweet, so it´s harder to go back to the surface, be careful (not too much, though ;) ) Up to 22 meters deep, but an average of 12 I would say
