Visiting this cave was a highlight of our trip. The site is very basic without many upgrades for tourists like lights and clean walkways- which is great with me - just be ready to walk through mud and underground streams to seem some amazing stalagmites...More

Easy to access ancient tomb. Cave is interesting in its own right, but it's ancient use age ads another dimension. The reason it has taken so long to be discovered is another dimension. North Peru has so much to be found still !

We walked to the entrance and was treated by an owl flying out of the cave. The cave is not overly developed but does need expert protection to preserve the geological structures found inside. It is a wet and muddy experience and the cave was...More

The caves themselves are spacious and had some beautiful stalactites. But it is not the most interesting cave from a geological perspective. Note that the cave floor is very muddy and wet . The location is beautiful as is the drive up which makes the...More
