Really interresting and huge cave. Only one third is explored. Little visitor centre and some nice walks to a mirador and to two other caves. Exploration of the funny rock formations made of pebbles is given and doing the roundtrip of the big cave you get a good Impression of what live was here some 14000 years ago. The question... More

The cave has a huge opening but no depth at all, and nothing of any interest inside. If it weren't for some OK walking paths and a lookout on the grounds, this would have been a complete waste of time.

Fun place to visit and understand how glaciers work. You wonder how a thing like this can be caused by glaciers. Wish we had more time to study the history and the whole cave.

Mylodon Cave was impressive, don't get me wrong. It's just over-shadowed by more impressive sights surrounding it (the mountains, the parks). It's relatively small, so you'll be in-and-out in about 30 minutes. But has some good history to read up on. Worth a pit-stop!

Beautiful place to visit if you go for the day to Puerto Natales. It's only about 30 minutes from that city and the road is pretty good. We were by car so that gave us freedom to go at our own feelings and speed. We visited this place with my elderly mother so we couldn't go to all of the... More

The caves are good to visit as a short side trip if you are staying in Puerto Natales. It is 2000 Chilean pesos entry for foreigners in the low season (when I went). The main cave is a very short walk from the admission building. There is information in English, however the information is not very in depth. There is... More

This is small but interesting place just outside Puerto Natales. An encounter with a prehistoric monster long gone, but that it is educating and gives us an idea of the fauna of those days.

We visited this place as part of a Torres del Paine tour. The cave is huge and very interesting. You can walk all the way inside the cave and feel about the grand space. There is a life size sculpture of the bear-like extinct animal. My five year old son kept asking me to read him the information about the... More

Great little cheap side trip out of Puerto Natales. The caves weren't the most spectacular but they are huge in size. The interpretive signs were in Spanish and English which made the experience really good.
