We visited the caves while on holiday, very average, I wouldn't recommend it. I didn't think it was worth the money. The plus side is the guide could speak English so she was explaining in Spanish to the group then translating in English. You need to be good on your feet as it's a bit slippy in places and there...

Gets you out of the heat and into the near constant cool of this gypsum cave system. The basic route was the one we did. Good to see they offer more challenging experiences as well. The guide was bilingual between English and Spanish, which was a great help. Upsides - unusual experience. Downsides - it is what it is -... More

Had a great time on the basic tour. Good value and guide was great. Not your average cave tour as some scrambling is required, which adds to the experience. Now I know where all the gypsum in plaster comes from and what is being loaded into the bulk carriers in Garrucha harbour! Makes a good break from the beach.

Went with my brother. Tried booking online but had trouble so phoned. It was quiet we had our own guide who spoke excellent English. It was harder than I thought but we managed. Some climbing and scrabbling required. It was brilliant, highly recommended. Not touristy at all. Going to take my husband soon.

Not for claustrophobics and for the Ruta Básica you need to be able to handle rough paths, clambering over sometimes slippy rocks and a dash of crawling on all fours. We booked online (13€ pp low season) and were lucky enough to be the only couple with personal attention from the charming multilingual guide. Asthmatics may find it dusty. Top... More

I have just experienced the 'easy' tour €15. A lovely walk up to the cave and lovely and cool inside after a week of 40 degrees! A young lady also found the climbs and crawls challenging and told me that although the web site advertised suitable for small children, she was pleased she hadn't taken her 4 year old. The... More

Entrance fee was quite high, but as we had travelled from Mojacar to see them, we paid the 13 Euros each and joined a Spanish speaking guide (no English and we do not speak Spanish). It was actually very good. The route was fairly easy, doing the Ruta Basica, but if you were claustrophobic, this might not be the attraction... More
