    Bat cave
    Took the tourist bus to the caves. There is a man in the small booth to take your entrance fee of $5 and when everyone is ready he leads you into the cave. The cave is small but very good. The guide is informative and tells you about the cave drawings and more importantly the bats. He shines his light up and you can see hundreds of bats hanging from the ceiling. There are some on their own, some in pairs and in the holes lots cuddled together. Every now and then they fly around the cave, again either on their own or in groups. After talking about the caves and bats the guide leaves you to explore on your own. These caves are definitely worth a visit.

    interesting nature reserve and bat cave
    Lovely walk around the nature reserve - price includes the caves and lots more. Take a phone so you can photo the guide and you get lots interesting information about what youre looking at. Interesting plants, insects, birds, reptiles, the bat cave ( which is a crawl at entrance) and the aboriginal burial site - there is a random human skeleton which I think shouldnt be on public display (but thats a personal opinion) and is unprotected from the public. €5 entrance fee you can hop on hop off bus there.

    Great attraction, interesting history and engaging guide.
    Very cool place, close by to the hotel and makes for a great stop on the way to Varadero. Our kids, 10 and 13 at the time found it fun. The guide was engaging and knowledgeable. Highly recommend it.

Nice cave experience. Older gentleman was very helpful and informative. Incredible experience if you like bats. The $5 American was worth the 45" experience.

Beautiful views , worth the visit . Climb down is slippery but there is a handrail to hold on to . $5 American to get in. But once your there it is breathtaking

As a science geek I love stuff like this. Was a short walk from the Blau hotel. Cost was 5 USD. Tour guide walked us through. Was very informative. Once he gives you the tour you are free to explore on your own.

Nice and cool in the cave on a hot day.
