We didn’t have a good experience with Top Peak Tours - can’t find them to review - so we didn’t think the trip to the underground river was worth it at all. Got a bus from PP at 7.30 - we were told initially we’d...More

The cave itself really fascinates, however the numerous tourists and long waiting a bit spoiled overall impressions. I would recommend to take good beam searchlight with you.

Nice to see the cave through the river. However it’s really smelly there. As soon as you reach the place from a big boat ride, you can smell it straight away.

Loved every minute of this site even though it was pouring rain. Wish we could have seen some monkeys that I guess are typically there when it is dry out.

The only complaint I had was that it took 2 hours to get there and another 2 hours to actually get to the underground River by boat. Then another 2 hours back. Once there it was fantastic. The rock formations, the stalicmites and stalictites were...More

They are very Catholic so I would guess that it’s closed. There’s no website? Or can you call the Colosseum (PP city hall that gives the permits). Either way I say spend more time in El Nido!
