Hire a Scooter and do Hospital cave on the way to the national park - be sure to have a coffee at the wee cafe that you park your scooter at.

Very short experience. We were able to walk around the cave and it is very interesting, but you also have to pay to get in for about 5 minutes 'exploring'

This is a part of package. All those walks under the heat.. Oh man! It is not even the hottest season! Make sure bring a lot of water! A piece of good news to share : not a many mosquitos as we imaged before!

I had probably too much fun here. I went alone and had so much fun with the intense echoes in all of the rooms and caverns. The large cavern (cinema) is awesome to be inside alone. Also it's a really nice scooter ride up from...More

Suprised to see so many poor reviews of Hospital Cave. It's a very interesting and inspiring bit of history built into an amazing hunk of rock. Yes, it may only take 10 minutes to hurtle round, but if you take your time and soak up...More
