This cave is not so much impressive, ww paid for a ticket even there was no light inside. You can cross this cave in 3 minutes . I think it could live some slaves in the past. Now there is also restaurant here and some parties.

Palenque de los Cimarrones was easy to traverse. The path through the the caves is relatively short, perhaps a 15 minute walk. The scenery at the exit is beautiful.

We were driven here as part of a day trip to Vinales and surroundings and had lunch nearby. I understand concept of the place is supposed to educate us about, but I really did not find it impressive or even necessarily worthwhile to be honest. Some huts at a mountain...

My partner and I enjoyed our visit to the Palenque, although found it could have been executed better (maybe a bit more material to read/see - just more information really!) The Oshun cocktails which were included in the ticket price, were absolutely lovely!

Only a short cave compared to the Cuevas de India. This was where the slaves hid. Good little show at the end, bit touristy, My guide used to work there so I got a bit extra. Buy some honey near the exit

Many people don't know or appreciate the significance of the slave trade or it's impact on the Americas. I didn't spend much time here but it's historical significance is very important.

Palenque where runaway slaves hid. Fascinating and disturbing insight into how we have treated one another.

It's just a bar and then you can walk through the cave. Once a week there is a show, which I did not attend. It def adds to the experience of what valley is all about, caves, nature, history, but if you are short on time, skip it.

Food was not fresh and heated up with microwave (it was still cold on the inside). We were accompanied by 4 ill dirty street dogs and cats and the waiter did not do anything about it. Do not go there, it is a tourist trap.

The cave was recomended to us by the host and we had good time there! I liked the fact that they included in the entrance fee a very unique cocktail. Also you can enjoy a little African dance show.
