There’s no question that this is a cool experience. Wading/swimming through water and tight crevices and exploring cool cave formations were the coolest parts. However, all of that lasted 15-30 minutes. We then stood around for hours waiting for groups ahead of us to slowly...More

This trip is a must do. We went in not knowing what to expect and our minds were blown. Hiking and swimming inside a cave was a magical experience. Our guide, Luis Zaiden, was excellent. The artifacts were interesting and the picnic at the end...More
