I've been on cave tours before but this one was special. The way the light comes into the cave and hits the water below gives it a magical appearance. The facilities were very good and the guide knew her stuff.

In our 70's I was uncertain if this might be taking on too much, but the hike to and from the grotto was reasonable and pretty and what awaited us was quite awesome! While there were hundreds of steps to navigate, they were smooth and...More

Beautiful place, for viewing only. Nice and trained staff. Easy access, light walking, but there are stairs to get down to the opening of the cave, and coming up Is not really strenuous, it does require a bit of lungs.

The beauty of the place well worths the visit. It is a 400 m walk followed by a descent (steps) of 60 m. At the end you will see a subterranean lake of a shiny light blue. You could sit there and admire the beauty...More
