If you are on Siquijor Island make sure to stop by and take the cave tour. Its beautifull inside and simple tour. The cave is not high enough to stand up unless you're a small person. Same way out as the way in, so keep that in mind. Put on some old clothes, you might get dirty from the mud... More

We really didn't have any expectations going into the tour. It cost us p600 for two of us, which was a private tour, helmet, and lights, with two guides. Within the first 2 minutes of entering the cave, you can figure out if you will have an easy time or not, navigating through the cave. I wore tevas and was... More

Sorry for the world but it's really creepy inside the cave. We tried it while there a bad weather and it's raining. The cave is so slippery and the rocks are very spiky so you should wear a sandals or waterproof shoes if you have one.

What a shame to let a local Barangay ruin a beautiful cave. Note the tourist all over the formations. This will ruin the formations in no time. This cave should be developed by the admission fees, instead of supporting a local barangay. What a shame. Ignorance. Like dynamite fishing except this resource will not recover.

just fantastic...I went there on 11th January 2016...my 60th birthday. We went there with 5 adults and 2 kids. Amazing! They told us kids not allowed, but I did not want to let the kids outside with people they don´t know...and it should take about 2 hours. So, we took the kids with us...I had to pay for 2 guides,...

Very impressive locals as they make all efforts to preserve the natural beauty of this siquijor gem. They built a gate to keep vanguards away and conduct the cave tours themselves. My guide was a young, 7-month pregnant woman who showed me through the cave in her shorts and slippers without safety gear! She held a low light flashlight-- tip:... More

You can finish the spelunking activity within one hour depending on your pace. Inside the cave you can see many rock formations which are already labeled by the locals. Before you go out, you can take a dip at the mini swimming pool. Be careful not to touch the white rocks so they can still grow to a more beautiful... More

We're glad that it didn't rain so hard when we went there otherwise our time would be wasted for an hour of travelling going to the site. What I like here is that the barangay is responsible for the safety of the tourists. My friend and I paid 560 for the 2 tour guides, environmental fee, head gear and head... More

I did this trip with friends and recommend it. It's a longer underground hike with lots of water. A little muddy in places. Low ceiling will have you bent over between a few of the chambers. Hard hat is a must. Not a lot to see but I did drink the water at the spring without any problems. We loved... More

Having visited the cave in Sagada, this one in Siquijor pales in comparison. But, an interesting visit nonetheless. Might not be a good idea if you are claustrophobic, or like myself is having back issues, as there are a lot of low passages where one is required to bend low to go through. A roughly 800m trek, lots of interesting... More
