Although the caves are a nice place to visit, the entrance is 18000 pesos wich I consider is a shame of price and only shows the greed of the owner. There are plenty other nicer places to visit in Pucon.

Pay 18.000 Chilean pesos per person. Cave is interesting. Tour is short. Only 500meters. The guide didn't explain much. Our group didn't feel it was worth 18k each.

My kids loved going into this cave. My older kid became very interested in all the geological information given by the guide. I also took my smaller child (2 yrs) maybe a bit small for this still.

The Volcanic caves are closed because the eruptions in march. There are a lot of damages. In Pucon you can order a guide or .... go for your own with your own risk. Impressively, the lava caves - dark, damp, do not forget a flashlight....More

the caves itself are really nice and the tour guides are also really good, but compared to other activities I did in chile it seems to be a bit expensive (18000 pesos for around one hour). However, I'm happy I did it.

Si, un auto sedan puede transitar sin mucho problema por el acceso al Parque. A nosotros nos pareció que el camino, recorrido sin prisas, es un paseo hermoso para todos.
